Cybersecurity is enforced through numerous technology standards that implement secure computing practice; however, the human aspect is typically overlooked in the standards. With humans as an inevitable part of the cybersecurity pipeline responsible for decision-making and timely action to mitigate damages, it is vital to reduce the excessive amounts of non-contextual information that overwhelm human users such as security analysts and engineers. To address the human behavioral aspect of cybersecurity EPSi is active in researching and developing tools to be deployed at command and control centers that augment data logs with data mining, malicious event detection, contextual visualizations, and contingency response guidance systems. These developments protect hardware assets, making systems less susceptible to cyber threats if a cyber attack occurs.
