Cybersecurity SME Survey
Posted on 17 Feb 2023 9:46 AM

Dear Information Security Subject Matter Expert (SME),

I am conducting a research study that focuses on comparing phishing mitigation methods, specifically three phishing training methods and two phishing campaign methods, for my dissertation work. I am a PhD candidate in Cybersecurity Management at the College of Computing and Engineering of Nova Southeastern University. My dissertation is chaired by Dr. Yair Levy and this work is part of the Levy CyLab. ( My research study is seeking to compare the mitigation methods and their impact on malicious email in organizations. The experiment that I am seeking assistance with is aimed at comparing these phishing mitigation methods in a 2x3 quasi-experimental format measured on six specific end user negative response actions and vulnerability types. A secondary outcome of this experiment is to measure the samples based on several demographic factors.
