1. Jenkins, Jeffrey Lyne. Alleviating Insider Threats: Mitigation Strategies and Detection Techniques .

Degree: 2013, University of Arizona

Insider threats – trusted members of an organization who compromise security – are considered the greatest security threat to organizations. Because of ignorance, negligence, or malicious intent, insider threats may cause security breaches resulting in substantial damages to organizations and even society. This research helps alleviate the insider threat through developing mitigation strategies and detection techniques in three studies. Study 1 examines how security controls – specifically depth-of-authentication and training recency – alleviate non-malicious insider threats through encouraging secure behavior (i.e., compliance with an organization's security policy). I found that `simpler is better' when implementing security controls, the effects of training diminish rapidly, and intentions are poor predictors of actual secure behavior. Extending Study 1's finding on training recency, Study 2 explains how different types of training alleviate non-malicious insider threat activities. I found that just-in-time reminders are more effective than traditional training programs in improving secure behavior, and again that intentions are not an adequate predictor of actual secure behavior. Both Study 1 and Study 2 introduce effective mitigation strategies for alleviating the non-malicious insider threat; however, they have limited utility when an insider threat has malicious intention, or deliberate intentions to damage the organization. To address this limitation, Study 3 conducts research to develop a tool for detecting malicious insider threats. The tool monitors mouse movements during an insider threat screening survey to detect when respondents are being deceptive. I found that mouse movements are diagnostic of deception. Future research directions are discussed to integrate and extend the findings presented in this dissertation to develop a behavioral information security framework for alleviating both the non-malicious and malicious insider threats in organizations.

2. Quetard, Boris. Anticipation et accumulation active d'information sensorielle dans la prise de décision en situations de vision normale et dégradée : Anticipation and active accumulation of sensory evidence in perceptual decision-making with normal and degraded visual information.

Degree: Docteur es, Psychologie, 2018, Clermont Auvergne

Conduire un véhicule dans le brouillard requiert d’intégrer de l’information visuelle bruitée avec des attentes sur la scène routière pour rechercher des indices visuels importants pour la navigation. Les tâches d’identification et de recherche visuelle peuvent être vues comme des processus de prise de décision où l’information est accumulée et où des attentes sur l’objet et son contexte sont intégrées. L’accumulation d’information est souvent modélisée comme un processus passif. Cette thèse vise à mettre en avant des mécanismes actifs, intégrant les attentes sur la cible (sur sa position, sur son identité) et de l’information sensorielle dégradée (e.g., brouillard). Nous avons employé le paradigme de mouse-tracking, permettant d’inférer des aspects dynamiques du processus de prise de décision via les mouvements de la souris d’ordinateur. L’Étude 1 évalue l’effet du contexte dans la catégorisation de cible et suggère un compromis entre rapidité et exactitude de l’accumulation d’évidence pouvant être vu comme influençant activement la décision. Mais elle n’évalue pas directement la collecte active d’évidence. Les Études 2 et 3 incluent la mesure de la détection et vérification de la cible via les mouvement des yeux lors de la recherche visuelle dans des scènes dégradée. Les attentes sur la localisation (Étude 2) et sur l’identité de la cible (Étude 3) sont manipulées. Ces études éclairent les contributions de la détection et de la vérification dans l’accumulation d’évidence pour la réponse cible absente et cible présente. Pour conclure, nous proposons une ébauche de modèle de prise de décision intégrant une dynamique entre accumulation d’évidence et système oculomoteur.

Driving a vehicle in the fog requires the integration of noisy visual information with expectations about the visual road scene, in order to search for visual clues important for navigating. The visual search and identification of relevant objects can be seen as decision-making processes where sensory information is accumulated and where the expectations about the target object and its context are integrated. The accumulation of information is often modelled as a passive process. This thesis focuses on the contribution of active mechanisms integrating expectations about the target (its identity, its location) with degraded sensory information (with fog or artificial noise). We used the mouse-tracking paradigm, allowing to infer dynamic aspects of the decision-making process through a computer mouse movements. Study 1 evaluates the effect of the context for categorizing a target and suggests a trade-off between the speed and accuracy of the evidence accumulation process which can be seen as actively influencing the decision. But this study cannot directly evaluate the active collection of evidence. In Studies 2 and 3, target detection and verification are directly measured through eye movements during visual search tasks in visually degraded scenes. We manipulated the expectations about the location (Study 2) and the target’s identity (Study 3).…

3. Gustafsson, Ewa. Physical exposure, musculoskeletal symptoms and attitudes related to ICT use.

Degree: 2009, University of Gothenburg / Göteborgs Universitet

High prevalence of musculoskeletal symptoms/disorders in neck and upper extremities are reported among computer users. Considering the widespread use of information and communication technology (ICT) and mobile phones becoming more and more like computers with small keyboards it is of importance to identify the factors and conditions related to this use, that influence our health. The overall aim of this thesis was to obtain new ergonomic knowledge of the physical exposure associated with the use of information and communication technology with emphasis on small keyboards, computer mice and young adult ICT users. In an interview study with young adult ICT users, where the data analysis was performed with the grounded theory method, was showed that the young adults experienced ICT as a tool for being and acting in the present, to be social, efficient and independent with almost unlimited opportunities but also risks. A comparative experimental study with experienced computer mouse users evaluated muscle activity with surface electromyography and wrist positions/movements with electrogoniometry during work with a traditional flat computer mouse (pronated hand position) and a vertical computer mouse (neutral hand position). Work with the vertical computer mouse decreased the muscle activity in the extensor muscles in the forearm and in the first dorsal interossei muscle, and the ulnar deviation in the wrist compared to the traditional mouse. An experimental study, with young adults with and without musculoskeletal symptoms from neck and/or upper extremities, evaluated thumb positions/movements with electrogoniometry, muscle activity with surface electromyography, and working techniques with an observational protocol when text entering on a mobile phone. The young adults with symptoms had lower muscle activity in the abductor pollicis longus and tended to have higher velocity and fewer pauses in the thumb movements compared to those without symptoms. Females had higher muscle activity in the first dorsal interossei and the abductor pollicis longus compared to males. It was more common in the group with symptoms to sit with the head bent forward, to sit without forearm and back support and to enter text with one thumb rather than two compared to those without symptoms. Use of forearm support decreased the muscle activity in the trapezius muscles. Use of one hand grip increased the muscle activity in the extensor muscles in the forearm. High observed velocity in the thumb movements was associated with increased muscle activity in the extensor muscles in the forearm compared to low or moderate velocity. In conclusion, this thesis shows that computer mouse design has an effect on the muscle activity in the forearm and hand, and on the wrist positions and movements. It also shows that the individual factors working technique and gender have an effect on muscle activity and thumb movements when entering text on a mobile phone. Furthermore, there were differences in working techniques, thumb movements, and muscle activity…
