Abstract
A current priority for National Defence is the development of strategies and techniques to prevent and counter terrorism threats within the cyber domain [1]. Conducting research in this area aids in the development of tactics, techniques, and procedures that can be implemented by the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), with the goal of reducing the impact adversaries have on Canada. In an effort to develop strategies to reduce cybersecurity concerns, a team of researchers at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) – Toronto Research Centre will conduct research on susceptibility to social engineering from a personality perspective. The current report summarizes recent research that has been conducted and published thus far, presented as an annotated bibliography. Based on our first assessment, larger scale research is needed to better understand the relationship between personality and social engineering susceptibility and assess the contradictory findings that exist in the literature. Ultimately, this summary serves as a starting point for the DRDC researchers in identifying gaps in order to inform their research.
