Abstract [en]

In nature, it is inspiring to observe such an extensive variety of defensive skills distributed among species. The speed of an antelope, and the sting of a scorpion, wasp or a bee are some examples of such defensive tools or mechanisms important to survive against predators. However sophisticated the skills or tools are, the correct accurate use and on-time triggering of those tools is a matter of life and death for animals. With those defensive measures, animals come with a complementary ability called "vigilance".

Vigilance is costly and the human tries to minimize vigilant behaviour in every aspect of life. The absence of vigilance, or negligence in other words, allows humans to spend more time and cognition on matters that he or she wants rather than on problems that need time. The human has an inherent and intricate mechanism that determine the vigilance level required for a particular problem.

The consequences of the lack of vigilance in a work environment, more especially in the Information Technologies Security field are catastrophic and even lethal as humanity becomes an increasingly associated habitant of cyberspace ecosystem.

Intrusion Execution Systems (IES) which is one of my conceptual propositions in this research, is my approach to reduce negligent behaviour in IT Security personnel. Impetus is the name of the first prototype for IES concept with limitations, which is included in this research.

Impetus can successfully achieve desired behaviour in test environment, however the conceptual propositions in this research among with Impetus, should further be experimented in real-world in order to be convinced of its effectiveness.
