DescriptionWith the exponential increase of cyberattacks due to the ubiquitous adoption of remote work, strong and effective cybersecurity teams are indispensable. However, in-depth knowledge of team competencies in cybersecurity literature is scarce. This article reviews and suggests areas of improvement for cybersecurity teams through the lens of the existing attitudes, behaviors, and cognitions (ABCs) framework. Suggested areas for immediate improvement within cybersecurity teams include attitudinal variables such as cohesion, mutual trust, team reward attitude, and a cognitive variable known as shared mental models. Identifying relevant ABCs associated with the team competencies necessary for cybersecurity teams to be effective will be a critical step toward creating applicable measurement and training.
