Security Economics - A Personal Perspective

Ross Anderson, University of Cambridge, UK

Ross Anderson is professor of security engineering at Cambridge and known for seminal contributions to a number of areas of security engineering. In 2002 he presented at ACSAC the paper "Why Information Security is Hard - An Economic Perspective" which kicked off the study of security economics, a fast-growing discipline that models what's likely to go wrong with complex systems, measures what's actually going wrong and comes up with ideas of what to do about it. He's also the author of the bestselling book "Security Engineering - A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems".
