University of Maryland SP2 Lab

Security. Privacy. People.


In SP2, we research how security and privacy affect people, and how people affect security and privacy. We use methods and tools from computer science and social science to investigate how and why people make security- and privacy-relevant decisions, and to give people tools to make better decisions.
We are affiliated with the Maryland Cybersecurity Center and the Human-Computer Interaction Lab.
