AbstractRecognising user behaviour in real time is an important element of providing appropriate information and help to take suitable action or decision regarding cybersecurity threats. A user's security behaviour profile is a set of structured data and information to describe a user in an interactive environment between the user and computer. The first step for behaviour profiling is user behaviour model development including data collection. The data collection should be transparent as much as possible with minimum user interaction. Monitoring individual actions to obtain labelled training data is less costly and more effective in creating a behaviour profile. The most challenging issue in computer user security can be identifying suitable data. This research aims to determine required observation measures to capture user-system interactions to understand user's behaviour and create a user profile for cybersecurity purposes.
