A deep dive on cyberpsychology and a look at autonomy in the U.S. military

Just as behavioral psychology revolutionized economics by integrating human behavior into the study of financial decisions — creating the field of behavioral economics — the study of cyberpsychology tries to put the human being at the center of conversations about cybersecurity. Dr. Mary Aiken is one of its foremost practitioners and also happens to be the inspiration for Patricia Arquette’s character in “CSI: Cyber.” She sits down with host Elias Groll to discuss the emerging discipline of cyberpsychology. DefenseScoop reporter Brandi Vincent also joins the show to discuss how the U.S. military is thinking about autonomy.
