Cybersecurity Toolkits for/of the Future: A Human-Centered Computing and Design Research Approach

James Pierce, Researcher/Assistant Professor of Design, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, UC Berkeley|California College of the Arts
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Sarah Fox, Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Communication and The Design Lab, UC San Diego
Nick Merrill, Research Fellow, Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, UC Berkeley
The cybersecurity toolkit—collections of digital tools, tutorials, tips, best practices, and other recommendations—has emerged as a popular approach for preventing and addressing cybersecurity threats and attacks. Often these toolkits are oriented toward vulnerable populations who have unique and pressing needs related to cybersecurity but may not have access to the...

Using Multidisciplinary Design to Improve AI/ML Cybersecurity Scenarios

James Pierce, Researcher/Assistant Professor of Design, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, UC Berkeley|California College of the Arts
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Tara Shi, Graduate Student Researcher, College for Environmental Design, UC Berkeley
The overarching research question guiding this project is: How can multidisciplinary design methods, perspectives, and forms be applied to improve existing artificial intelligence (AI) cybersecurity scenarios, predictions, and extrapolations produced by researchers, market analysts, government organizations, and industry experts? This research will begin by collecting and carefully reviewing and organizing...

Engaging Expert Stakeholders about the Future of Menstrual Biosensing Technology

Noura Howell, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Sarah Fox, Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Communication and The Design Lab, UC San Diego
Franchesca Spektor, Undergraduate Student Researcher, UC Berkeley
Networked sensor technologies are increasingly present in daily life. While promising improved health and efficiency, they also introduce far-reaching issues around cybersecurity, privacy, autonomy, and consent that can be difficult to predict or resist. This project will examine menstrual tracking technologies as a case for understanding the current and near-future...

Cybersecurity for Non-Primary and Primary Users of Always-On Internet of Things Devices: An Ethnographic, Participatory, and Multidisciplinary Design Approach

James Pierce, Researcher/Assistant Professor of Design, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute, UC Berkeley|California College of the Arts
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Current design and user-oriented security/privacy research focuses on individual awareness, choice, and consent approaches. Despite some successes, decades of research highlights significant limitations to informed consent and usable choice approaches: policies are often ignored, overly time-consuming, and can actually decrease trust, even when they are clearly written; and privacy decisions...

Menstrual Biosensing Survival Guide

Noura Howell, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Sarah Fox, Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Communication and The Design Lab, UC San Diego
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Biosensing technologies are increasingly present, predicting bodily or emotional health and offering promises of improved efficiency or personal wellness. Menstrual tracking apps, for example, encourage users to report intimate details, from the duration of periods, cervical mucus texture, emotional state, to sexual behavior. These apps offer benefits but also pose...

Cybersecurity: Meaning and Practice

Deirdre Mulligan, Associate Professor|Faculty Director, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Kenneth Bamberger, Professor/Faculty Director, School of Law, UC Berkeley
David Bamman, Assistant Professor, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Geoffrey Nunberg, Adjunct Professor, School of Information, UC Berkeley
Elaine Sedenberg, Privacy and Data Policy Manager, Facebook
Richmond Wong, PhD Candidate, School of Information, UC Berkeley
There is little empirical research documenting the various meanings of cybersecurity in use in distinct communities, their relationships, and the activities they drive in practice. This project, “Cybersecurity: Meaning and Practice” seeks to expand upon the examination of cybersecurity’s meaning using the theoretical framework of “securitization” (Nissenbaum 2005) and explore...
