Gender inclusive cybersecurity
June 2021 – May 2023
Asreen Rostami joined RISE Cybersecurity as an ERCIM postdoctoral fellow. Her research was focused on “humanising” Internet of Things (IoT) security to provide an understanding of the technical, design, social and political issues that arise when considering IoT systems from a human-centred perspective. Her current research under the Digital Futures postdoctoral fellowship program is centred around bringing marginalised perspectives into cyber security, starting with looking at the deviant use of smart home devices.
She aims to develop gender-inclusive cyber security, a human-centred approach to security that encompasses feminist principles such as diversity, autonomy, respect, and consent and applies them in a digital context.
