Connecting delayed pre-commitment with cyber awareness in order to address the perception gap and present bias.

Project: Research

Description

The project is funded by the Home Office and addresses the challenges of protecting small businesses and charities against cyber-crime.
There are some simple actions that organizations can take to dramatically reduce the damage from a cyber attack. These include the use of two-factor authentication and staff awareness of mandate or invoice fraud. With this in mind, our project has two main aims: First, to explore the barriers that small organizations face in adopting cyber best practice. Second to test an intervention designed to increase the likelihood of organizations adopting best practice.
