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.”
