Mobile phones became main part of our daily life helping us accomplish many tasks or activities from anywhere anytime at fingertips. These activities involve information either receiving or passing over internet, which cause cybersecurity problems. Most of the activities handle sensitive data right from the identifying yourself to finish the activity. Cyber-threats increased with the increase in the number of Mobiles, People, Apps and Activities. This is forcing us to consider cybersecurity of Man - Mobile and Activity – Data/Apps concepts. In this paper, an analysis of these four main players is given in cybersecurity perspective by considering the relationships among these four players. Further driven-apps and their influence are also considered in the analysis graphically. Introduced a point scaling the effectiveness of analyzing the relationships which help understand the risk severity.

Man-Mobile, Data-Activity, Cybersecurity, Driven Apps, Point Scaling, t-tests and Analysis

Cybersecurity is a Fuzzy network of security problems and solutions. Though several methodologies, approaches and solutions are proposed by various researchers, none of them focused on the Man – Mobile relationships to analyze the security issues. We proposed new methodology, studied and analyzed the Man – Mobile relationships, by statistical methods. These statistical methods usually are applied in population, or action – response observation, but we apply them for security problems.
