Human Cyber Consciousness – The Next Frontier in Cybersecurity

This short introduction to human cyber consciousness is the first book in a new series on cybersecurity that will present a uniquely modern approach to cyberspace situational awareness and human cyber consciousness. This approach can be applied to many cyber domains including cyber security, cyber warfare, information security and cyber operations in general. At a high level this introduction will help the reader understand that cyberspace can be modeled, virtualized and simulated in a way that permits us to view near real-time cyberspace activity with the naked eye. When we virtualize cyberspace in 3D we can observe, orient, travel, research, and work in a virtual world which represents real cyber objects and their relationship to other objects. For purposes of virtualization in this brief introduction, cyberspace consists of objects, generally represented as cyber objects (vertices) and relationships (edges) between cyber objects in graphs. These objects may be enriched by the fusion or addition of data and information to provide a virtual representation for sectors of cyberspace which can be traversed in both space and time. Prototyping this approach with actual commercial web server session activity information has shown that higher degrees of cyber situational awareness can be achieved as objects are increasingly enriched by the fusion of data and information from multiple sensors and sources, objectified and rendered into a 3D visualization. Hence, in this approach to cybersecurity cyberspace can be virtualized and simulated; and this virtualization can be visualized with the naked eye, so cyberspace can be traveled, explored, and operationalized by humans. This is simply a short introduction. Additional details will follow in this mini-series.
