Cybersecurity Issues and the Social, Behavioral & Economic Sciences

cybersecurity interest at sbe
Cybersecurity Interest at SBE
  • The Directorate of Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) at the National Science Foundation focuses on human behavior and the actions of groups and organizations.
  • SBE has begun looking at cybersecurityissues
    • Main goal: advancing the underlying social science supporting cybersecurity solutions
  • No active solicitations or Dear Colleague Letters specific to Cybersecurity at this time.
  • Encourage proposals to existing programs: http://1.usa.gov/NSFSBE
    • Disciplinary: Political Science, Economics, Sociology
    • SciSIP (Science of Science & Innovation Policy)
    • IOS (Innovation & Organizational Sciences)
    • DRMS (Decision, Risk, & Management Science)
nsf s goal through collaboration advance underlying science
NSF’s Goal: Through Collaboration,Advance Underlying Science
  • Cybersecurity combines new technology with both old & new social science
    • Problems of incentive alignment, efficient risk bearing, and interdependent security are studied in economics
    • Federations and security alliances evoke sociology and political science
    • Information overload and display techniques, as well as protecting against social engineering, combine psychology with cognitive science
    • NSF’s focus: advancing underlying scientific bases of cybersecurity issues
  • At Internet2 meeting (Oct 2011 in Raleigh, NC), session on SBE funding sources for cybersecurity research, followed by an open discussion on
    • collaboration among IT/CS/engineering faculty and social scientists
    • integrating social-science research knowledge into practical cybersecurity issues (including those funded outside SBE)
    • identifying truly transformative ideas supporting future research opportunities that meld disciplinary knowledge from multiple fields
