While behavior change methods have become relatively commonplace in the health domain, they have only recently been applied to the cybersecurity field. In this chapter we review two fundamentally different approaches to behavior change in cybersecurity. First we explore “nudging” and behavioral interventions arising from the MINDSPACE framework. Second we explore the more theoretically based Protection Motivation Theory (PMT) as a framework for introducing behavior change. Finally we consider the relationship between these two approaches.
