Towards a More Secure Enterprise IT Landscape: The Human Perspective 


Professor Philipp Brune



In the age of Digitalization, Cloud Computing and (industrial) Internet of Things (IoT) Applications, Information Security needs to be increasingly considered on the application and organizational level. Human behavior, either as a system user or as a decision maker in an organization, strongly influences the actual level of IT security in an organization. Therefore, the human perspective needs to be considered in the design and implementation of security solutions. This talk presents results of two selected projects, the first focusing on better understanding security-related decisions in SME (including empirical results from Germany), the second on improving the user experience of user authentication. The results illustrate by example the importance of human perception and behavior for improving Information Security.
