The User Experience of Information Security presented at OWASPBASC 2019

by Chris Lamarche,

Summary : Targeted and increasingly sophisticated attacks are growing in popularity. With spear-phishing, ransomware, and a slew of other user-oriented attacks, our information security, particularly our operational security, relies on having our users on board. But training end-users can be difficult, and our response to mitigating these attacks can sometimes come at a great expense to UX. This session delves into the User Experience of Information Security, and provides attendees with insights into how some of our best laid security measures might actually increase our vulnerability to future attacks.
