De-Thorning the ROSE, Exploring the Human Aspects of Cyber Security

Human users are responsible for the overwhelming majority of data breaches; either through human error, insider threat, or by becoming the victim of a social engineering attack. The 2019 ISACA report states that insiders were among the top three causes of data breach, and the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report found that 94% of malware is delivered through email. This presentation will highlight some of the factors influencing susceptibility to Remote Online Social Engineering attacks and will then focus on the most vulnerable user population. Individuals within an organization who repeatedly fall victim to phishing emails, referred to as Repeat Clickers, present a significant security risk to the organizations in which they operate. This presentation will discuss current research to understand this phenomenon, discuss recent pilot data, and suggest research questions to improve understanding of the contributing factors of repeated victimization by phishing emails.
