Help us understand how families approach cyber-security concerns

28 March 2019

Are you a parent with a child aged between 6 and 16yrs at home? If so, I need to talk to you! I’m looking for volunteers for a study about cyber-security in families. I’d like to chat to parents and their children about what technology/devices you have in your home, what threats you are aware of and have experienced (like phishing scams) and what you do to protect yourselves. You’ll be paid a £20 Amazon voucher (per family) plus sweets for the kids.


  • Families with at least one child between the ages of 6 and 16 years old living at home. Parents must be able to meet with the researcher in person to be interviewed. The location, length and number of interviews can be adapted to suit the family schedule. Please contact the researcher for more information.
