The RMIT Digital Ethnography Research Centre has great pleasure in inviting you to:Complex Patterns of Engagement: A Case Study in the Design of Socio-technical Approaches to Privacy Awareness Abstract: Socio-technical approaches to research can be complex and require broad thinking about your topic. Investigating why people do what they do with technology and information is a socio-technical subject that is increasingly touching everyones research space. This talk presents the main outputs of a UK research project, Visualisation and Other Methods of Expression (VOME), which explored the
topic of privacy awareness. In describing the outputs, the talk features some of the methods of engagement used to connect with a wide range of communities during the design and evaluation of VOMEs interventions.
Speaker: Lizzie Coles-Kemp is a socio-technical researcher, interested in peoples information security and privacy practices. Coles-Kemp is affiliated with the Information Security Group, Royal Holloway, University of London. She is interested in why people do what they do with information, how they protect it and why they protect it in the way that they do. Coles-Kemps two main areas of research are:
- Organisational information security and privacy practices
- The privacy and security implications of the information society
Coles-Kemps particular focus in each case is the interaction between humans and security and privacy technologies, how each influences the other. Coles-Kemp is primarily a qualitative researcher who is interested in research in different modalities. Current interdisciplinary collaborations include: social research extensions to formal evaluations of security ceremonies, the use of subcultural analysis in security policy design and the use of visualisations in interdisciplinary research.Date: Friday, 4 May 2012
