Mini-Workshop Personality traits meet cyber security

The art of "people hacking", or social engineering, uses psychological techniques to trick people into revealing information, installing malicious software or participating in scams. Research has shown that certain personality traits make people more (and less) likely to fall prey to specific attacks or scams. This talk explores the above hypothesis, based on actual research carried out, which combines personality traits and security knowledge and behaviour.

  • Deeper understanding of how personality traits influence online behaviour
  • How to use this data in security culture and awareness programmes
  • Security awareness best practices
