example cover

New emerging cyber security threats from social media, connected cars to online banking, connected infrastructure to smart products that define society today. The book provides new practical insights for businesses helping them to recognise these new vulnerabilities in human-cyber spaces which they otherwise would not be able to detect given the complexity of modern digital environments.


We bring together leading experts merging exiting and new research from Behavioural Science and Artificial Intelligence fields, to provide insights in new practical evidence-based threats and responses into a step-by-step toolkit on how to consider risks and vulnerabilities across different dimensions as well as suggest ways of how to detect new risks and vulnerabilities by looking at the wider ecosystem of issues beyond just the data and technology.


Our goal is to empower businesses to be able to apply a new human-centered vision to cybersecurity problems in order to detect risks which they have not encountered or have not anticipated before. Furthermore, these risks and vulnerabilities do not only have to be detected, but also effectively communicated. We aim to demonstrate how effective communication can help build secure and safe human-cyber spaces in the new digital economy.


  • The book is intended for executives, risk assessment analysts, and practitioners interested in receiving practical guidance about how to diagnose, anticipate, and address new risks and vulnerabilities while building secure digital environments inside and around their businesses.

  • The book is useful for anyone who communicates about complex risky environments in the cyber space, from business speakers, bloggers, scientists, journalists, educators, and political aides to concerned citizens.

  • This book will also help policy makers to better understand the complexity of business decision making in the digital economy which, in turn, can help inform new policies in the domain of cybersecurity and beyond.
