Abstract:Although billions of dollars are spent each year securing network infrastructure, devices, and resources against threats, the impact of cybersecurity arrangements on individuals remains largely unexamined. Unless cybersecurity technologies, policies, and processes are built with people, and their diversity, in mind, the needs of wide swaths of society—including children and teens, the elderly, women, low-income families, and people with disabilities—are unlikely to be addressed. Though many methods are important for investigating motivations, practices, and affect, qualitative methods are particularly necessary for nuanced ways of knowing about these phenomena. But qualitative research constitutes just a fraction of cybersecurity research. This fishbowl session will focus on research to enable usable, livable, and inclusive cybersecurity by exploring qualitative ways of knowing in cybersecurity research.
