Trustworthy ICT Research for the IT Security Industry. A collaboration of IT Security Associations. Supporting the competitiveness of the European IT Security market and defining the research agenda.
I am a security researcher in the Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge. I work in the field of "security economics". When there is security failure (or the occasional success!) a technical investigation will tell you what failed and how it did so -- but looking at the economic forces in play will often tell you why it was built that way and why it was allowed to fail.
