Cybersecurity Fear Appeals: Are they Ethical?

My collaborator Dr. Karen Renaud and I have been examining cybersecurity fear appeals for over a year and a half now. In addition to a review of their use in cybersecurity, we also examined the ethics surrounding their use. This is a short video that she put together based on our work in this area. We recently had a paper accepted, “Scoping the Ethical Principles of Cybersecurity Fear Appeals,” in the journal Ethics and Information Technology, which will be available to the public shortly via open access.
