Security and Privacy for Humans

Tuesday, March 2 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This is a past event.
Virtual Event

 

Traditionally, security and privacy research focused mostly on technical mechanisms and was based on the naive assumptions that Alice and Bob were capable, attentive, and willing to jump through any number of hoops to communicate securely. However, 20 years ago that started to change when a seminal paper asked "Why Johnny Can't Encrypt" called for usability evaluations and usable design strategies for security. Today a substantial body of interdisciplinary literature exists on usability evaluations and design strategies for both security and privacy. Nonetheless, it is still difficult for most people to encrypt their email, manage their passwords, and configure their social network privacy settings.

 

In this talk, Lorrie Faith Cranor of Carnegie Mellon University will highlight some of the lessons learned from the past 20 years of usable privacy and security research, and will explore where the field might be headed.


Featuring:
Lorrie Faith Cranor, Director and Bosch Distinguished Professor of the CyLab Security and Privacy Institute and FORE Systems Professor of Computer Science and of Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University
