What strategies do people deploy in keeping secrets online? And how can these strategies be re-purposed to; (i) enhance the capacity of UK security agencies to detect & mitigate threats generated via online channels, and (ii) support those who keep secrets as parts of their jobs in countering UK & International security threats.
We reviewed over 7500 research papers, uncovering a range of strategies, barriers and enablers involved in keeping secrets online. Three example contexts were used: supply and purchase of illegal drugs, escaping from intimate partner violence, and infidelity. We then condensed our findings, producing a short graphic novel - the “Illustrated Guide to Keeping secrets Online” – for use with security and law enforcement stakeholders in a series of well-received interactive workshops.
This talk describes the approach taken, key findings, development of the Guide and subsequent impact workshops with stakeholders.
This seminar is part of Digital Futures' Digital Trust & Security Guest Seminar Series.
