It is very difficult to think what information security and privacy problems a new product might encounter, especially in the fast-moving health automation field of BIO-IOT. This project explores using creative fiction – stories, fantasy and speculation – to help software developers and product owners to identify such threats and vulnerabilities. Following an initial literature survey on creative fiction, we plan to start by surveying experts and fans of fiction for example text; we’ll then build it into a format for a workshop, and trial that workshop with a team of health software application builders. As outcomes, we shall share fiction examples/scenarios, process followed and conclusions from the workshops.
Call for Events is now open! We're supporting Members and Expert Fellows to lead activities that explore aspects of TIPS in the Digital Economy. We will help to organise the activity with up to £5,000 to cover the associated costs.
