While cyberattacks and cybersecurity may involve technical aspects, the offenders, defenders, and victims are human. Cybercrime is a broader societal problem and thus the social sciences can, and should, be included in discussions of cyberattacks and cybersecurity in both the research and education domains. This talk shares how social science has been used in research to understand adversarial movement, decision-making, adaptation, and group dynamics. It then discusses how it has been blended with data analytic techniques to delve into these areas further. On the education front, this talk shares how hands-on projects can expose students across both the hard and social sciences to areas of critical infrastructure cybersecurity, adversarial mindsets, and social engineering.
