Cited in Article about Innovative Approach to Cybersecurity Education

Dr. Caine was cited in an article on the shortage of cybersecurity workers in the US published in The Chronicle of Higher Education.

“Among the institutions that are shifting to a more comprehensive notion of cybersecurity is Clemson University. Its Humans and Technology Lab conducts research aimed at making automated systems better reflect the ways people actually behave, with protections designed accordingly. Recent projects include studying how patients use electronic health records and exploring the risks to privacy posed by wearable devices.

Nationwide, colleges have a long way to go to incorporate that kind of broad approach into their educational and research agendas, says Kelly Caine, an associate professor of human-centered computing at Clemson, who heads the lab.”

APA Talk on EHRs in Clinical Practice

Dr. Kelly Caine has partnered with Centerstone Research Institute CEO Dr. Dennis Morrison to host a session on electronic health records at the 119th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association. The conference will be held August 4-7, 2011, at the Walter E.WashingtonConvention Center in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Caine’s and Dr. Morrison’s session, “Electronic Health Records in Clinical Practice,” will focus on how, when designed using human factors methods, electronic health records may be used to support evidence-based practice in clinical settings. It also will include an overview on the current state and use of electronic health records in behavioral health settings, and feature an interactive discussion regarding the potential future uses of electronic health records in clinical practice. The session, meant to deepen participants’ understanding of the role and potential role of electronic health records in their practices, will take place on Saturday, August 6, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:50 a.m. in Convention Center Room 148.

The annual APA convention is the largest gathering of psychologists and psychology students in the world and attracts more than 12,000 attendees from all areas of specialization in psychology including research, practice, education and policy.

Featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”

Dr. Caine was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” on July 25. The segment posed the question, “Are passwords really the best way to protect your digital identity?” With studies routinely proving that consumers choose weak passwords, researchers are exploring the potential of other methods of authentication. Dr. Caine, an engineering psychologist, noted in the interview that there is a reason biometrics haven’t been widely adopted as authentication standards. “Your credentials–so, your face, your iris, or your fingerprint–can’t be re-issued if they get compromised.”

Paper demonstrating importance of visualization on disclosure decisions presented at CHI2011

Today Dr. Caine presented work demonstrating the importance of visualization on disclosure decisions at the 2011 ACM Conference on Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) in Vancouver.

Along with her co-authors, Dr. Lorraine Kisselburgh and Ms. Louise Laureau, Dr. Caine studied the effects of providing users, and potential users, of Online Social Networks (e.g., facebook) with visual and numeric feedback about the audience to whom they are disclosing. They found that augmenting an interface with a visualization or numeric display of the audience helps people disclose in a way that is more in line with their own preferences. In addition, Drs. Caine and Kisselburgh and Ms. Lareau suggested alternative designs that could make use of this new information to help social network users manage their privacy.

The full paper, Audience Visualization Influences Disclosures in Online Social Networks, is available here as a PDF and online in the ACM Digital Library.
