The Consideration of the Human to Protect Against Cybercriminals

Published on: 2019-02-13


For years, cybercrime has been secured by antimalware software and digital services, mainly involving engineers with various professional skills in the fields of IT and digital technology. Thus, the company, the administration, the organization feel protected against cybercriminals. It must be said that cybercrime is changing considerably. In a press article and according to serious studies including Norton [1], we talk about 100% growth in cyber-attacks. What company would not wish such economic development! The question that comes back to the mind of structures wanting to protect economic, state, associative and even personal environments is: why don’t our antimalware and digital services protect us, One of the answers I would like to give is: have you thought about the human being? Man is at the heart of every act, even virtual ones. However, it is not considered at its right place and value. It is not even integrated into cyber security despite the statistics. The prestigious firm Deloitte considers them at 63% [2]. That is 63% of cybercriminal acts are caused by humans, by malice or clumsiness. So how can we protect ourselves from these cybercriminal acts coming from human and if this were to include the fact that man is at the heart of every act in the first place. Especially that these humans behind the screen must be understood, in particular in the light of my scientific theories as “Avatarization”, “Virtual Intelligences”, “Transverse Zone” developed in my scientific publications [3-4] and books [5-9].
