Abstract

This paper will describe three case studies on the human factors, in personal and public safety and cyber security from the Asia Pacific region (APAC). A deeper consideration of human factors, the impact of “Internet of Things” and cyber security education about the behaviour and actions that can be taken by individuals is at the foundation of public safety and cyber security. The growth of disruption by cyber criminals - especially when using small devices and applications to interact with large social networks is a cause for concern. This is part of the evolving development of a cyber-physical world. The paper presents three case studies and proposes a Self-awareness and Intervention Model for public safety and security by increasing and maintaining the awareness, understanding and preparedness of cyber security measures by the individual when using mobile device applications to participate in large social systems and concludes by highlighting the importance of including the human factors and message framing alongside the cyber security measures in place.
