Research interests

Despite the availability of security tools, devices are still vulnerable to compromise via the risky security behaviour of end-users. Risky behaviour is not necessarily obvious to all end-users, and can be difficult to recognise. Lynsay is interested in the human aspects of cyber security, investigating how to effectively communicate security information to average end-users.


Research interests: usable security; human-computer interaction; human factors of cyber security; eye tracking; security awareness; affective feedback; open-source intelligence.
