In 2021, NCSC-NL commissioned Leiden University to carry out a rapid review to gain insight in best practices and potential future research avenues so that behavioural science can be integrated in broader security by design methodologies and projects. This academic field is referred to as security by behavioural design. The aim of security by behavioural design is to design systems in such a way that the user of these systems is more likely to behave in a secure manner. The goal of this rapid review was to cover the research that empirically tests the effectiveness of various methods. The methods covered are nudging or also called choice architecture, and techno-regulation.
