The project investigated ‘Human Vulnerabilities in Network Security’ by focusing upon ways of reducing the potential for human behaviours that play a role in breaches of cyber security and was commissioned by the Cybersecurity KTN. Vodera led the consortium that comprised the Midlands Centre for Criminology & Criminal Justice, and the Ergonomics & Safety Research Institute, both of Loughborough University. The study investigated types of human error and the various forms of cyber security breaches relating to human error. Three scenarios are analysed and modelled using the 25 techniques of situational crime prevention, a cornerstone of the fields of security and crime prevention.
