University of Bath need help with research project called “Cyber-Security across the Life Span”

University of Bath (UOB) are conducting research as part of project called “Cyber-Security across the Life Span” ( overseen by Prof Adam Joinson. This project explores cyber-security and aims to identify better ways to design educational materials to equip people of all ages with the knowledge they need to protect themselves against cyber-security threats.

To this end, UOB are trying to recruit people of a wide variety of ages, especially people with less (or indeed, no) experience with technology, and those who are typically underrepresented in this area of research.

The questionnaire asks participants to write down all of the words that come to mind when they think of “security” and “cyber-security”. We also want to ask whether they have had any experiences of cyber-security incidents. This is part of a nationwide data collection effort across the lifespan – we are also collecting data in workplaces and in schools.
