A Hybrid Cognitive-Neurophysiological Approach to Resilient Cyber Security
Cyber infrastructure remains vulnerable. Communications systems lack resiliency, a characteristic common to many natural systems. In this paper, the authors present an interdisciplinary neuro-technological approach to considering resilience in cyber communications systems. A model for communications systems security is reconciled with corresponding models of physiological situational awareness and cognitive adaptive goal direction. Finally, they discuss operational considerations of their approach to achieving resiliency, particularly as it relates to cloud computing. The frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks continues to accelerate, affecting both public and proprietary systems. For example, malware is a constant threat, and new vulnerabilities continue to be exploited.
