From "The Oxford Handbook of Expertise": In this chapter, we describe the historical and continuing evolution of the cyber domains, and how we can operationalize current research in cyber expertise. Research into cyber expertise is in its infancy; in fact, there is no clear definition of what constitutes cyber expertise or how it may be unique when compared to other technical fields. We describe the work roles of cyber operators and review results from Cognitive Task Analyses of their workplace. We then review several paradigms in detail including experiments using simulated intrusion detection software to study different levels of expertise and how information is shared between multiple teammates in these environments. Finally, we present some candidate topics for future research including the use of realistic synthetic environments to study cyber operations with more ecological validity.
