Weary Warriors: Reducing the Impact of Fatigue on Infosec Decisions

Presented by

Dr. Margaret Cunningham, Principal Research Scientist for Human Behaviour, Forcepoint

About this talk

Wishful thinking won’t protect your data and systems. Without understanding two key psychological constructs, motivated reasoning and decision fatigue, people will continue to put their trust in software alone to keep their systems safe – and then shift responsibility for adverse events onto end users. Recorded live at Infosecurity Europe 2019, Dr. Margaret Cunningham explores the security implications of these two behavior patterns and gives advice on how to recognize and counteract bad decisions.
