dc.description.abstract
Do logic-of-the-domain explanations account for insecurity following cybersecurity incidents? In this International Studies Quarterly article, CSS' Miguel Alberto Gomez and Christopher Whyte demonstrate that repeated exposure to news of cybersecurity incidents does not cause panic and dread among publics. Rather, perceptions are shaped by embeddedness in digital society and the sense of control such that exposure mitigates negative emotions over time, normalizing novel threats. Moreover, assessments of digital threats towards the polity are grounded on personal threat sensitivity.

dc.description.abstract
Sind Erklärungen der Ausführungslogik für die Unsicherheit nach Cybersicherheitsvorfällen verantwortlich? In diesem International Studies Quarterly-Artikel zeigen CSS Forscher Miguel Alberto Gomez und Christopher Whyte, dass wiederholte Auseinandersetzung mit Nachrichten zu Cybersicherheitsvorfällen keine Panik und Angst in der Öffentlichkeit auslöst. Vielmehr werden Wahrnehmungen durch die Einbettung in die digitale Gesellschaft und das Gefühl der Kontrolle geprägt, so dass die Aussetzung negative Emotionen im Laufe der Zeit abschwächt und neue Bedrohungen normalisiert.
