Human factors in cyber security: A scoping review

In this work we carry out a scoping review to investigate the take of the computer science community on the human-centric cyber security paradigm by considering the top conferences on network and computer security for the past six years. Results show that broadly two types of users are considered: expert and non-expert users. Qualitative techniques dominate the research methodology employed, however, there is a lack of focus on the theoretical aspects. Moreover, the samples have a heavy bias towards the Western community, due to which the results cannot be generalized, and the effect of culture on cybersecurity is a lesser known aspect.
