Behavioral Research on Teenagers Cybersecurity Behaviors (Rutgers University)

Conducted an empirical study on Teenage behaviors on cybersecurity. More than 250 students from 31 different schools participated in focus groups, interviews, and an online survey. The research factors are the effect of knowledge, peer influence and environment relating to cybersecurity. The preliminary findings were, lack of experience, time constraints, and low perceived value ,SafeTeens, a non-profit was started to address the gaps.

Research: “Empirical study on Teenagers Cybersecurity Behaviors," presented at Rutgers University as part of NJ JSHS symposium.
