About this theme
Understanding how people behave, both individually and in groups, is a central research theme for the Socio-Technical Research Group, RISCS’ partner in the NCSC. But this is mostly focused on those people whose intentions are non-malicious and who simply want to do a good job. To understand the full spectrum of people in cyber security, we need to understand the intentions, drivers and behaviours of those who have more malicious aspirations as well as those who inadvertently find themselves as “accidental insiders”.
This research theme pulls together the cybercrime research projects funded by Home Office and will further expand to include work that can provide insights into topics such as insider threat, online harms and supporting victims of cybercrime.
