The following represents a verbatim response on an article by Cyber Security company FORCEPOINT’s CIO Meerah Rajavel and chief scientist Richard Ford by Dr. Alexander Stein a specialist human risk forcester and psychodynamic risk anaylist of Dolus Advisors. In response to the article which canbe accessed by clicking here,in Dr Stein wrote,
“Rajavel and Ford outlined strategies for understanding intent and applying human-centric cyber defenses at the recent Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit. It’s about time security and technology leaders recognize that people, not processes and technology, are at the center of security incidents. BUT … Anomalous behavior scanning is incomplete and inadequate; motivation and intent are but two factors in a complex non-linear calculus which might foster or impede ideation and impulse toward or away from high-risk or malfeasant action. The ‘Cyber Continuum of Intent’ presents as a 2-D tool in a multidimensional environment. What’s needed? Specialized expertise in mental architecture, psychodynamic drivers and underpinnings, and identifying, decoding, and forecasting human factor shadow data”.
