Aspects in TIA
Total Information Assurance recognizes that
Information Security/Assurance has to be implemented by human
beings and for use of the human beings. This "Human" element
brings with it the peculiarities of human behaviour.
Different humans may behave differently for the
same stimuli. Similarly the same human may behave differently at
different points of time for the same stimuli.
In implementing any IS/IA control there is
therefore the unpredictability associated with the humans and
hence motivating people in an organization or community for
achieving IA objectives requires management of the behavioral
pattern of humans. Study of this is part of the TIA.
This is an emerging social science and "Cyber
Sociology", "Cyber Psychology" etc are parts of this study. This
section of the site tries to explore this area.
