Topic: Privacy engineering matters: Helping to design privacy-preserving software systems
Hosted by the AISA Cloud Branch please join, Dr Nalin Arachchilage, a Lecturer in Cyber Security and Privacy in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland, New Zealand for an online presentation on developing a systematic approach (i.e., privacy engineering methodology) for developers to implement privacy into software systems that preserve end-user privacy.
Many aspects of cybersecurity synthesize technical and human factors. If a highly secure system is unusable, users will try to bypass the system or move entirely to less secure but more usable systems. Similarly, software has become pervasive today that it continues to challenge user privacy when users are interacting with them. A broader concept of security, privacy, and usability is, therefore, required for privacy-preserving software systems. Privacy practices and laws (e.g., Data Minimisation (DM), Privacy by Design (PbD) or General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) exist, but software engineers find it challenging to implement privacy-preserving software systems using them.
Dr Arachchilage will also discuss a serious gaming approach helping software developers put the developed methodology into practice.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions. This webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available to registrants.
Dr Nalin Arachchilage
Dr Nalin Arachchilage is a Lecturer in Cyber Security and Privacy (Usable Security and Privacy) in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Previously, he was a Senior Research Fellow (Research Associate Professor in the USA - from 2019 to 2021) in Cyber Security in the Department of Computer Science and Information Technology at La Trobe University, Australia. Before joining La Trobe, Nalin worked as a Lecturer in Cyber Security (from 2015 to 2019) and then a Visiting Researcher (2019 - 2021) in the School of Engineering and Information Technology of the University of New South Wales at the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA), where he led the Usable Security Engineering research group. Nalin holds a PhD in Computer Science (Cyber Security) from Brunel University London, UK, where he developed a game design framework for teaching people how to protect themselves from phishing attacks. At Oxford University, he cut his teeth as a Postdoctoral Researcher in Systems Security Engineering (2013 - 2014) in the Department of Computer Science and then joined the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Usable Security and Privacy (2014 - 2015). Nalin's primary research interests are at the intersection of computer security, human-computer interaction (HCI), software engineering, Information systems security and serious games, in an area known as usable security and privacy engineering.
