A mixed methods approach to understanding cyber-security vulnerability in the baby boomer population

The ongoing development and ubiquitous spread of technology has brought with it new threats and opportunities for online victimisation. Although human factors cyber-security research continues to try to mitigate these threats through the application of behavioural science, some users, such as older adults, remain at particular risk of cyber-attacks, and yet remain heavily under-represented in the extant literature base. This thesis outlines a mixed methods approach to understanding older adult cyber-security vulnerability.
