The book identifies the technological features that give rise to security issues. It describes the structure of the Internet and how it is compromised by malware, and examines some of the more common security issues. It then looks at aspects of human persuasion and consumer choice, and how these affect cyber security. It argues that social networks and the related norms play a key role as does government policy, as each impact on individual behavior of computer use. The book identifies the most important human and social factors that affect cybersecurity. It illustrates each factor using case studies, and examines possible solutions from both technical and human acceptability viewpoints.
