Description

The project sets out to:

Use home-based IoT technology as a framework to identify the potential of these devices to be exploited for criminal purposes via the ‘cyber-enablement’ of particular crimes;
Investigate the influence of individual differences in psychological characteristics and socio-demographic factors on the adoption and use of these devices at the consumer level, including how this may differ in response to perceived vulnerabilities of devices;
Consider how these individual differences in adoption and use may contribute to the exploitation of IoT devices by nefarious individuals.
