Human behavior plays a major role in the effectiveness of cyber security efforts although the human typically receives far less attention than the technology. Perhaps the greatest challenge to cyber security is that people are inherently behind each cyber problem as well as its solution . This paper examines the behavioral aspects of cognitive overload, bias, and incentives. These aspects of human behavior all affect the decision making of those who develop policy and strategy, those who fall victim to cyber attacks, and those who initiate cyber attacks.
