Understanding Cyber Situation Awareness
Historically, situation awareness has been applied to mainstream disciplines such as psychology, air traffic control, and aviation. This trend has since changed. Situation awareness has expanded now into the Cyber domain such as social media, vehicular networks (VANET), cybersecurity, CERTs and computer network defense (CND) etc. With every new innovation or its application, there is potential for misconceptions, misinterpretation and downright misunderstanding. This has led to situations where very many ‘things’ have now been ‘branded’ Cyber SA, many of which have nothing to do with situation awareness. This paper introduces Cyber SA, provides definitions, examples and discusses applications of situation awareness in the Cyber domain.
