Reconfigure: Feminist Action Research in Cybersecurity (Report Launch)

Julia Slupska, Scarlet Dawson Duckworth and Professor Gina Neff will present the findings of Reconfigure, a project applying action research methods to cybersecurity. Through “participatory threat modelling”, an emerging method which invited ordinary people to define cybersecurity threats, we draw attention to common barriers with engaging with cybersecurity, the role of gender, race and sexuality in shaping this engagement, and the benefits of communal approaches to cybersecurity.
