Promoting cybersafe behaviours

Promoting cybersafe behaviours

Research in this area operates at the behavioural level to understand the mechanisms through which interactions between users and systems can deliver negative or positive outcomes for cyber security and resilience.

We employ the term ‘user’ to refer to individuals as well as organisations and communities of all types. We identify approaches for promoting behavioural change among users to enhance cybersafety and cyber security awareness. Our focus also extends to everyday users to understand the social structure and dynamics of online risks and malicious interactions. Our research aims to examine the experience of everyday users regarding the design and usability of systems and to empower everyday users to improve their cyber awareness, understandings of privacy and risk, and overall cyber resilience.
