A Human-Centric Approach to Cybersecurity: Securing the Human in the Era of Cyberphobia

ABSTRACT

Cybersecurity relates to the threats posed to a nation’s critical infrastructure, but should not be limited to the traditional concept of national security. The militarization of the cybersecurity discourse has produced a security dilemma, which is not sufficiently addressing the needs of people. This article highlights this shortcoming and views cybersecurity through a human-centric perspective. The challenge ahead is to establish a governance regime for cyberspace that successfully addresses human rights norms.
