PaCT Lab, Northumbria University
PaCT Lab is a Human-Computer Interaction lab at Northumbria University. They are interested in understanding how people use technology and have a special interest in how older users engage with e-health technologies, cyber security systems, and digital privacy controls.
They run a series of workshops informing older users from the general public on the topics of cyber security and online privacy protective measures, as well as assisting with the fine-tuning of these controls on their devices and/or services.
Their work covers four broad and overlapping themes: privacy, security, trust, and behaviour change. These themes are explored across a variety of domains including health, commerce, energy conservation and learning.
