Angela discusses some fascinating topics with us based on research she has done into things like:

  • Analyzing employee behaviors for security environments...
  • The use of positive reinforcement over shame and fear....
  • How to make usable security...
  • How to enforce security policies....
  • And how all this fits into her being a psychologist?
