Human-Centered Cybersecurity

Human-Centered Cybersecurity (General)

Our team often writes articles or provides presentations that discuss and provide information about human-centered cybersecurity to various audiences, for example, cybersecurity practitioners or fellow researchers.

We are co-hosting the Human-Centered Cybersecurity Series for the Redefining Cybersecurity Podcast (see General Human-Centered Cybersecurity -> Podcasts below).

Currently, we are conducting a multi-phased research project to understand the interactions between human-centered cybersecurity researchers and practitioners. We hope the results will lead to the creation of mutually beneficial “bridges” between the research and practitioner communities that facilitate the relevance and application of research findings to real-world practice.
