Cybersecurity: Making decisions that keep you safe

Are you concerned about online security and privacy? Do you wonder how may we promote secure online behavior among your students? If the answer is yes, then this workshop is for you.

This workshop will explain risk communication and intervention techniques that focus on promotion of secure behavior, detection and prevention of social engineering attacks such as phishing attacks, and mindful usage of social media. You will learn how to design intervention videos/materials, and test their efficacy through user studies. By the end of the workshop, we will learn how to design educational videos that you can use to promote cybersecurity in your school, and design future class projects.

You can find two sample videos designed in our lab in the past here:

This workshop will be able to accommodate up to 20 teachers.
