Abstract

Cybersecurity is an important aspect of technology, yet human behavior often represents a challenge to enforcing policies and practices to keep IT systems safe from data leaks, hacks, or other vulnerabilities. In this course, students will learn about different tactics and techniques derived from Persuasive Systems Design targeted towards understanding design features and systems that influence people to behave in ways that support rather than detract from safe cybersecurity measures.

Lectures: 5 x 2 hours = 10 hours

Credit points: Students may obtain 0,5 ECTS (credit points), if they participate all lectures. Missing a lecture would mean reading an article and writing 300 word reflection of it. 

Teacher: Dr. Matthew Canham, George Mason University

Contact person: Iikka Paajala, University of Oulu
