Abstract

In this paper we explore the differential perceptions of cybersecurity professionals and general users regarding access rules and passwords. We conducted a preliminary survey involving 28 participants: 15 cybersecurity professionasl and 13 general users. We present our preliminary findings and explain how such survey data might be used to improve security in practice. We focus on user fatigue with access rules and passwords.
