Abstract:

The Suspicion Propensity Index and Mayers trust questionnaire are used along with a cyber-mission performance questionnaire to investigate different attributes that may indicate high performance in the cyber career field. One hundred twenty two total individuals participated in this research, 57 from the cyber career field and 65 from other various careers. Evidence suggests that suspicion is highly correlated with cyber mission performance. Years of experience displays a more prominent role in suspicion of cyberspace individuals compared to their non-cyber counterparts. Trust is not significantly correlated with overall cyber mission performance.
