A laborban több aktív kutatási területeken lehet önálló labor, szakdolgozat, és diplomaterv témát választani. Ezeknek a területeknek a leírása található alább, illetve ebben a diasorban. Ha valamelyik tématerület érdekel, keresd meg a tématerületért felelős kollégánkat, és beszéljetek lehetséges konkrét feladatokról a területen belül. Ne feledjétek, hogy egy-egy feladaton kisebb csoportban (team-ben) is lehet dolgozni.

Economics of cybersecurity and data privacy

Kategória: Economics, Risk management, Privacy

As evidenced in the last 10-15 years, cybersecurity is not a purely technical discipline. Decision-makers, whether sitting at security providers (IT companies), security demanders (everyone using IT) or the security industry, are mostly driven by economic incentives. Understanding these incentives are vital for designing systems that are secure in real-life scenarios [1]. Parallel to this, data privacy has also shown the same characteristics: proper economic incentives and controls are needed to design systems where sharing data is beneficial to both data subject and data controller. An extreme example to a flawed attempt at such a design is the Cambridge Analytica case [2].
The prospective student will identify a cybersecurity or data privacy economics problem, and use elements of game theory and other domain-specific techniques and software tools to transform the problem into a model and to propose a solution. Potential topics include:

  • data markets
  • cyber-warfare
  • interdependent privacy
  • economics and privacy in collaborative ML

Required skills: analytic thinking, good command of English
Preferred skills: basic knowledge of game theory, basic programming skills (e.g., python, matlab, NetLogo)
