In this talk, I put together two things we don’t often associate with cybersecurity: The League of Legends game and human psychology.

As an avid gamer, I often saw parallels between the tactics used to win games like League of Legends and the mentality that guides human behavior in general. Thus, when the subject of security awareness and end-users came up, I began to think about how we could address cybersecurity challenges in ways similar to how challenges are addressed in a game.

This realization allowed me to connect League of Legends, human behavior, and cybersecurity in a way that could make us think twice about how we approach the “end-user problem”.
