Tom Biselli, M.Sc. ist wissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter und Doktorand am Lehrstuhl Wissenschaft und Technik für Frieden und Sicherheit (PEASEC) im Fachbereich Informatik der Technischen Universität Darmstadt.

Er studierte Psychologie (B.Sc.) an der Leopold-Franzens Universität Innsbruck sowie Psychologie mit Vertiefung in Cognitive-Affective Neuroscience (M.Sc.) an der Technischen Universität Dresden. Aufgrund seines Interesses für interdisziplinäre Themen an der Schnittstelle von Psychologie und Informatik fertigte er bereits seine Masterarbeit zum Thema Brain-Computer-Interfaces in der klinischen Anwendung bei Patienten nach Schlaganfall an. In diesem Zusammenhang befasste er sich intensiv mit der Analyse komplexer Daten sowie den Chancen, die neueste technologische Entwicklungen mit sich bringen. Die gesellschaftlichen Auswirkungen solch moderner Technologien im Allgemeineren sind nun Gegenstand seiner Forschung bei PEASEC. Hier liegt sein Fokus auf den Themenfelden Privacy und Misinformation in der digitalen Welt, die er unter Zuhilfenahme datengetriebenener Methoden wie z.B. Social Media Analytics untersucht.

    On the Relationship between IT Privacy and Security Behavior: A Survey among German Private Users

    The relevance of adequate privacy and security behavior in the digital space is higher than ever. However, the exact relationship between privacy and security behavior is rarely discussed in the literature. This study investigates this relationship and the role of socio-demographic factors (gender, age, education, political opinions) in such behavior. Exploratory results of a survey of German private users (N=1,219) show that privacy and security behavior are only weakly correlated and not similarly influenced by socio-demographic factors. While se-curity behavior significantly differs between age and education groups (younger and less educated show less security behavior), no such differences exist for pri-vacy behavior. Additionally, political orientation and opinion has no influence on privacy and security behavior. Thus, this study sheds light on the concepts of privacy, security and corresponding behavior and emphasizes the need for a fine-grained differentiation if either privacy or security behavior is to be improved.
