Request For Research Presentations For the PrivacyCon Conference
Can we better use social science theory to help define or even solve for security dilemmas such as finding norms in vulnerability reporting and fixes? As the title suggests applying behavioral economics to problems in cyber could unlock novel approaches to risk reduction across industries. In theory, a set of wise but small changes to areas like disclosure, detection and re-mediation can produce dramatic improvements in decision making and safety/privacy. This presentation takes the audience through "nudge" foundations and ends with suggestions and examples of success in risk-based policy.
