Creative engagement methods: Everyday security

Creative security engagement is an approach that helps participants to draw out the details of day-to-day security practices. As a result, such engagement methods are not only able to sketch out issues related to IT infrastructure and its use but also the everyday security issues that arise through the building and maintenance of relationships with individuals, organisations and governments. Everyday security relates to an individual’s mundane, day-to-day security concerns and the daily routines and practices that are used to respond to these concerns. It is important to understand, engage with and respond to these everyday issues because this is where challenges related to information production, sharing and protection are situated.
