If you have a question about this talk, please contact Mateja Jamnik.

This talk will review a number of recent studies of user behaviour in security, and discuss how well they explain user behaviour in interaction with security mechanisms. There has been a focus on user interfaces, and improving users’s understanding of security, to help them make “the right decision” from a security perspective.

I will argue that, to successfully influence user behaviour, we need to develop a broader perspective of user behaviour in security, and how to influence it. People’s behaviour is goal-oriented and influenced by values and behavioural norms, and their perception of risk vs. cost of compliance. The talk will conclude with examples how application of this broader perspective can be applied to improve security design and communication with users.
