When it comes to cybersecurity, the general public tends to think in terms of technology. This is only natural as hackers attack and break into technological interfaces. These attacks turn malicious in the hands of a black hat hacker (i.e. the ones who give the rest of the hacking world a bad name). If you took an opinion poll at, for instance, a corporate office about how to best guard a network, the chances are most responses would be a technological one. You would likely hear mentions of firewalls and other effective deterrents that are based solely in a cyber world.
