Psychology in Cyber

March 9, 2020

Summary

Human perception and how we process thought can make all the difference in understanding and predicting attacks. Cybersecurity expert Anita D’Amico, founder and CEO of CodeDX, uses her background in clinical psychology to lead a career conducting research studying decision-making, how human factors affect vulnerabilities, and how perception determines a specific response to an attack.

"I did research where we sat side by side with cyber defenders and we asked them to vocalize what was going through their minds and we started putting together an entire process of what are each of the decisions that a cyber defender makes."
