An Introduction to Cyberpsychology: The Impact of Emerging Technology on Human Behavior

Cap Tech Talks Webinar Series

New technologies are having a profound impact on people. Cyberpsychology studies how these technologies impact behavior. It looks at how humans and technology intersect—and sometimes collide. The field is growing exponentially due to sustained rapid acceleration of Internet technologies, and how humans interact with them.  In this webinar, Dr. Mary Aiken, noted cyberpsychologist, author, and INTERPOL cybercrime advisor will cover topics including the Online Disinhibition Effect, cybercrime, online safety technologies, human factors, forensic cyberpsychology, cyber behavioral profiling, and resilience in cyberspace.  She will also look at the exploding employment and promotion opportunities for cyberpsychology graduates in industry, education, government, law enforcement, and the military.

The 60-minute webinar concludes with a moderated live question and answer period.
Capitol Technology University offers the webinar as a complimentary, informational service.
