Usable security: 'Managing both the technology and the humans'
Dr. Thomas B. Quillinan was appointed as lector of the Network and Systems Engineering Cyber Security Research Group at THUAS on 1 September 2016. He will give his inaugural lecture on Wednesday, September 27 2017.
The most complex issue when considering the security of systems is how to balance the needs of the system and the needs of the users. In this oratio he will discuss how to build usable and secure systems. Usable security means that the security of a system not only is tolerated by the users, but actively helps users in using the system and makes them more enthusiastic about it!
