The human factor must always be taken into account when developing technical solutions. After all, users are the first and last defenders against cyberattacks. That's why psychologist Dr. Michael Schilling says, "Why not ask those who know about human behavior?" Schilling, who lives in Saarland, has already been working on the interface of cybersecurity and psychology at the center since 2019. As part of the EU-funded Cysec4Psych project, he wants to inspire psycholog:icists in Europe to pursue a career in cybersecurity.
