Capitalizing on interdisciplinary studies and practical research focuses, we aspire to make a real impact on users, economics, and our social environments. Using technologies that support suitable user interfaces, organizational priorities, economic factors, and legal compliance, we take the complexities of mathematics and computer science and reduce them to appear more magic than science. Our targeted but personalized approach includes numerous connections and collaborative efforts with research groups representing a wide range of security application areas and complementary sciences.
Securing information technology for individuals and society through research, education, and outreach
Internet of things and wearables
Give people control over wearable and home-based personal devices.
Ensure that people can easily and efficiently make proper security decisions aligned with their mental models.
Use cryptography to build secure systems that preserve user privacy and enable secure data collaboration.
Design secure systems with integrated artificial and human intelligence, while protecting system privacy through hardening.
Ensure that even snippets of genetic code published in online databases can’t be used to identify individuals.
eCrime and malware
Understanding the economics, psychology, and technology of ecrime, including: phishing, ransomware, and malware.
