Through our membership with the Cyber Exchange, we are continuing to push for greater communication and collaboration within the cyber security community in order to raise awareness of the risks caused by Human Factors (HF) in relation to cyber threats. Earlier in the year, CRA joined the Cyber Exchange, an online platform for cyber professionals to network, collaborate and share industry news and events. And now, through CRA’s membership in the UK Cyber Security Forum, the company has been able to continue these efforts and engagement with the cyber security community.
CRA’s cyber offering is varied, but one of its biggest thrusts is the Human Factors (HF) element, where there is growing acceptance that the largest vulnerabilities are not within technology, but the people who use it.
The first line of cyber defence, from both internal and external threats, is the human component. Therefore it is vital that systems support the user through human-centric interfaces that facilitate effective decision making and situation awareness. Every structure has a level of human interaction, and so optimising human performance is a core factor in de-risking a system from the consequences of error.
CRA is a leading player in the field of Human Reliability Assessment, and has a specialist team of qualified Human Factors practitioners with extensive experience in Defence, Nuclear, Media and Transport sectors.
