The word security has many different meanings. At H-STAR, our focus is on the digital security realm. We are researching the human dimensions of security, including trust, authenticity and identity – at home, at work, in transit, and in governance. Everyday there are new ways to engage with technology and with that freedom comes the responsibility to ensure that people who are using this technology are protected. For example, our research reaches deep within a “data breach” headline. H-STAR research examines how to empower people to take control of their own security and how to encourage proactive rather than reactive processes.
