Abstract: In the past 2 years cybersecurity breaches have made the national headlines almost weekly. Many Journal of Cognitive Engineering and Decision Making (JCEDM) readers were personally affected by breaches of credit card information at Target, Home Depot, Michaels, and Staples, or through intrusions into the information systems of national banks such as JP Morgan Chase. We hope that few of you succumbed to the “ransomware” criminals who encrypt your personal files, such as digital photos, and decrypt them only upon payoff. The major attack on Sony Pictures, while fascinating to many, revealed that no email can truly be considered private and any business can be significantly disrupted both technically and culturally by cyber attacks.
