Session leaders: Yang Wang, iSchool Associate Professor
Description: In this talk, I will present my work-in-progress on inclusive privacy and security, which challenges and complements the mainstream perspectives on privacy and security research that focus on predominately technical work (1st wave) and making technical designs usable (2nd wave). I propose inclusive privacy and security as the 3rd wave of research. This research is focused on designing privacy and security mechanisms that are inclusive to individuals with various characteristics, abilities, needs, and values.
