Cyber Criminals Are Also Human: Cyber Terrorists are People Too
In my openion, the Cyber security is a human problem, but not a technology problem. Sure it manifests itself through technology, but unless, and until you realise that humans are at the heart of it, you are never going to crack it.
What does this mean? It means we doesn’t just hire computer geeks — not just brought electronic engineers and computer scientists — But better is to hires human scientists and even sociologists..BUT WHY??? Because We can’t claim to understand the system we are trying to tackle until we understand the human component & that should be very obvious.
People in the cybersecurity “community” view the world from their own view point. They simply step out of from the anglo-centric view of the world. They Have to think about how people’s geographies and their cultures interact with the system.
For the term “cyberspace”, it is one of the geometry, a boundary or a perimeter & it leads us to thinking about perimeter defense also. Here we need to defend our perimeter against the bad guys. Keep the bad guys out. Perimeter defense is not going to lead to perfect defense, and limiting access to the networks certainly might work, but taken to the limit.
The history of computer security is one of huge gaping holes — maybe it’s time to have another think about this.
