Human Factors News

These consist of news stories that have a human factors application, but may just be a brief one-liner (e.g. not a whole lot to talk about but cool enough for us to share).


Unfortunately from time to time, we run into stories that may be painful to read, but are relevant to the field of human factors. In this case, the following story deals with the tragic loss of life as a result of a cybersecurity issue. We're including this in our stories as it highlights the importance of the Human Factors behind cybersecurity. Read at your own risk.
