A new perspective on the achievement of psychological effects from cyber warfare payloads: the analogy of parasitic manipulation of host behavior

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This paper represents a think piece exploring early considerations of a new way of understanding and countering decision-making influence affected by Cyber Warfare payloads (where ‘cyber’ implies the use of any technology between sender/recipient). The approach detailed uses a form of Analogical Research (AR) to extract value from a biological model, in this case the effects that parasites exercise on their hosts. There is a lot to learn from parasites and the response of infected organisms - and the analogy has (as it were) legs.
