Insider Threat Detection, Authentication and Other Novel Applications of Computer Usage Data, Prof John Howie

As users interact with computers and the applications installed on them a wealth of usage information is available for collection. This data can be analyzed in the process of user experience (UX) design and optimization, but is often routinely discarded despite a number of other uses to which it can be applied. In his lecture, Visiting Professor John Howie will present ongoing research work he is involved with at the University of Arizona, as well as preliminary results. He will discuss how usage data can be applied to deception detection, authentication and even medical applications, and how these applications can be integrated into commercial security products.
