After 17 years managing operations and training teams across multiple industries, Laura has spent the last 7 years studying psychology and more specifically human decision-making in relation to cybersecurity. Now at the very tail end of her PhD and after spending her last year in industry, Laura has returned to Airbus as Human-centric Cybersecurity Researcher within the Airbus Innovation and Scouting Team.
Laura’s knowledge and research extends across a number of topics including human biases that lead to cybersecurity vulnerability, how cybercriminals look to further leverage on these biases and interventions that can be potentially utilised as human support. Her passion is making the breadth of psychological knowledge available in relation to human decision-making more accessible to the cybersecurity community and investigating ways to successfully apply it.
