Wednesday Seminar: Cybersecurity and Psychology

Stefan Sütterlin spricht im Mittwochseminar der RWU über die Anwendung der Psychologie in der Cybersecurity

We talk about hacker attacks, cyber espionage and state Trojans when cyber criminals try to gain illegal access to the IT systems of private individuals, companies or governments. Cybersecurity is concerned with the protection of IT systems. But IT security cannot always successfully fend off all attacks. Often, it fails because of the human component: human error allows cybercriminals to simply bypass technical protective measures.

In order to be able to rule out misconduct as effectively as possible, organizations are increasingly relying on security training for their employees. What psychological tricks and strategies do cybercriminals use? How can they be identified? In RWU's Wednesday seminar on June 22, 2022, Professor Dr. Stefan Sütterlin will talk about the current state of behavioral science research in the field of cyberpsychology.

Stefan Sütterlin is a professor of cyberpsychology at the Albstadt-Sigmaringen University of Applied Sciences. He received his PhD in the experimental physiological basis of behavioral regulation and subsequently worked on projects in the fields of biological, clinical, and cognitive psychology, both in Germany and abroad. Today, he represents Albstadt-Sigmaringen University on the Executive Advisory Board of the European Security and Defence College of the European Commission and serves on the board of international conferences in the field of human-computer interaction. He is also involved as a reviewer for international research societies and journals.
