What: “Protecting and Securing a More Inclusive Society Online”

How can technology be designed and deployed to make cybersecurity more accessible to underserved populations who may be particularly vulnerable to digital security threats, and who may have less technical training or resources? How can individuals with little experience with technology be trained and informed about making choices to keep themselves secure? This virtual conference will feature recent and ongoing research from a diverse group of UC Berkeley researchers who are developing knowledge, tools and methods to empower people and organizations to use technology to fulfill their missions, defend against digital threats, and create more equitable access to digital security.

The Research Exchange features the work of a diverse group of CLTC-affiliated researchers who are pushing the boundaries of technology, social science, and the humanities to positively influence how individuals, organizations, and governments think about and deal with cybersecurity issues. More information on the event will be shared with event registrants in the coming weeks.
