Economic Incentives and Security

Protecting sensitive information from malicious attacks is critical to any business, and a failure to take the proper security measures to ensure privacy can be devastating. Such security requires a significant investment, and designing economic incentives to compel entities to take make such an investment is a key component of risk management.

L. Jean Camp's research focuses on the risks of computing, which are difficult to understand, and compromised machines may participate in money laundering, spamming, and the enrichment of criminals. Thus, risk communication for security and privacy are required. Is it because the tools are simply unusable? In this case, usable security and privacy are the solution. Camp has published for each of these cases, from theoretical contributions, to actionable critiques, to functioning prototypes.
