What's the Role of the End User in Cyber Security?

Renaud, K. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


In a world where the number of cyber security incidents appear to be increasing rather than decreasing, it is time to consider the role of the end user. In this talk, I will discuss some research I did with Verena Zimmermann at TU Darmstadt where we examined this question. We suggest that end users are usually seen as a problem to solve. I will explain a new paradigm, with the user as the solution, and suggest that organizations need to adopt this new mindset if we are to tackle the unacceptable incidence of cyber security incidents.
