Consumer perspectives on digital security
School of Computing - Security Group Seminar
Speaker: Tony Phipps (Senior Manager - Digital Cyber Research)


Digital consumer security is different to enterprise security in terms of priorities and constraints. In this talk I will offer the consumer perspectives on cyber security from the perspective of a large financial services organisation. I will outline the balance between usability and security and how sometimes these aspects are in conflict. In addition I will outline some practical methods used to test customer behaviours and appetites and offer a view on future trends.


Anthony Phipps started his career as an engineer and has worked in a variety of fields including electrical and electronic engineering and more recently, information technology. For the last 20 years he has specialised in Information and Physical Security. He obtained my first degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Greenwich in 1997 and a masters degree from University of Westminster in Information Technology Security in 2002. He is currently responsible for a team that manages cyber security research for one of Europe's largest Digital banks.
