Chapter 7 uses a philosophical approach to discuss the frailty of the human psyche with regards to the implementation and use of systems through our engagement with cyberspace. Our constant exposure to newsworthy cyber security events can desensitize people to the warnings that are either apparent or subliminal. A number of key topical subject areas are discussed exploring human psychology: why people are susceptible to psychological vulnerabilities, characteristics of the human psyche that facilitate errors, how these traits can be exhibited through flawed actions causing mistakes and preventative measures to stop deliberate and accidental actions. This analysis is of vital importance and relevance in order to combat the risks, which to the computer end-user may appear distant and intangible.
