  • Cybersecurity teams that don't interact much perform best

    April 23, 2018

    ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, MD. (April 23, 2018) -- Army scientists recently found that the best, high-performing cybersecurity teams have relatively few interactions with their team-members and team captain. While this result may seem counterintuitive, it is actually consistent with major theoretical perspectives on professional team development. "Successful...
