"In Human Dimensions of Cyber Security, Terry Bossomaier, Steven D’Alessandro, and Roger Bradbury have produced a book that … shows how it is indeed possible to achieve what we all need; a multidisciplinary, rigorously researched and argued, and above all accessible account of cybersecurity — what it is, why it matters, and how to do it."

--Professor Paul Cornish, Visiting Professor, LSE IDEAS, London School of Economics

Human Dimensions of Cybersecurity explores social science influences on cybersecurity. It demonstrates how social science perspectives can enable the ability to see many hazards in cybersecurity. It emphasizes the need for a multidisciplinary approach, as cybersecurity has become a fundamental issue of risk management for individuals, at work, and with government and nation states.

This book explains the issues of cybersecurity with rigor, but also in simple language, so individuals can see how they can address these issues and risks. The book provides simple suggestions, or cybernuggets, that individuals can follow to learn the dos and don’ts of cybersecurity.

The book also 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.
