ABSTRACT

Applying Behavior Economics to Improve Cyber Security Behaviors   [open pdf - 880KB]

"Current systems are vulnerable due to poor cyber security behaviors. The existing quantitative models of cyber risk management and cyber insurance are still based on the assumption and behave according to classical decision theories. The approach includes three major activities: 1) quantitative capturing of heuristics and biases in cyber security. 2) quantifying cyber risks, premiums, and selecting control measures to reduce premiums. 3) Transition to practice, will test, evaluate and demonstrate the efficacy of proposed models and transition results to operational environments using 'real world databases' and working with 'live' partners who eventually will be adopting the models produced."
