The Psychology of Security

Greg Sternberg
Solutions/Security Architect, Jeppesen, USA

Information security often overlooks what motivates people. Everything people do is for a reason - we may not agree with the reason, or even fully realize it, but the reason exists. The fact is we have to contend with thousands of years of instinct and basic human nature. Psychology can help us understand how best to work with our users to improve security.
