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.
Note: This is a combined video of the two shorter ones.
This video discusses how easy it is to lose important data and files. Various scenarios are presented along with statistics related to data and device loss.

My collaborator Dr. Karen Renaud and I have been examining the use of fear appeals within the cybersecurity domain. In short, determining the efficacy of fear appeals in cybersecurity is complicated. She put together a video based on a paper that was presented at the New Security Paradigms Workshop in 2019.
