From 2013 on, Susanne has been working as a lecturer at the department of Communication Science, CS-CMC. On September 2015, she started with her PhD-project (SERIOUS project). The project is a collaboration between the EWI faculty, Services, Cyber Security and the BMS faculty, CS-CMC.
The aim of this project is to support and empower end-users in managing security and privacy risks of serious apps by means of a software. Currently, several frameworks exist that evaluate and solve security and privacy risks of (malicious) applications. However, these frameworks only solve a limited amount of risks and most do not aid the user in making well-informed security decisions.
The framework that we will develop during this project will emerge from consumers' needs and preferences and has to match with obligations, law and legislation from the government and the requirements from for instance the healthcare sector.
The project therefore consists of two main parts:
- Mapping the needs and requirements of users in managing privacy and security risks of mobile applications.
- Developing a framework that can identify threats to security and privacy and deal with these threats, while at the same time helping users make well-informed security decisions.
