What is it about?

Most existing information and cybersecurity solutions are techno-centric. The recent and increasing cyberattacks have clearly demonstrated that the existing solutions are failing. This paper examines the application of socio-technical systems (STS) theory into the cybersecurity domain. STS recommends the equal emphasis of both the social (including human) and technical aspects of security within particular environmental contexts in an organisation.
