Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Usability to increase security
I’m new to the forum and glad to be here. My background is user-centeted design, human factors and usability.
Four years ago I joined a cybersecurity firm as Chief Experience Officer.
As the founding father of modern user experience and former White House security experience researcher,Jared Spool so eloquently says, “if it’s not usable, it’s not secure“. He says this because good people with good intentions will find workarounds to security if the security has too much friction. UX researchers and designers have an opportunity today to work closely with cyber pros to increase security through user-centered design to reduce security friction.
My question for the forum: are there any other users experience or design professionals here on the forum, please say, “Hello!”. It’d be great to connect here on the forum.
P.s. if you’re not a UX design pro, but would still be interested to learn more about new research and other ways security is being increased through human-centered design, respond “Interested!” and I can compile a few good links.
