SCENE: A structured means for creating and evaluating behavioral nudges in a cyber security environment

Lynne Coventry | Pam Briggs | Debora Jeske | Aad van Moorsel

Behavior-change interventions are common in some areas of human-computer interaction, but rare in the domain of cybersecurity. This paper introduces a structured approach to working with organisations in order to develop such behavioral interventions or ‘nudges’. This approach uses elements of co-creation together with a set of prompts from the behavior change literature (MINDSPACE) that allows resesarchers and organisational stakeholders to work together to identify a set of nudges that might promote best behavioral practice. We describe the structured approach or framework, which we call SCENE, and follow this description with a worked example of how the approach has been utilised effectively in the development of a nudge to mitigate insecure behaviors around selection of wireless networks.
