Designing Systems for Risk Based Decision Making

workplace-1245776_640

Overview

Information security experts usually find themselves having to make decisions with little more than their experience, judgement and intuition to depend upon. When risk and uncertainty are high, determining what the right decision is becomes increasingly difficult and this is also attributed to the fact that systems in use are not designed to accommodate decision making.

This project aims to study how information security experts make decisions to identify suitable data elicitation techniques and design implications for systems design and engineering.
