Abstract:Simply by using information technology, consumers expose
themselves to considerable security risks. Because no technical
or legal solutions are readily available, and awareness
programs have limited impact, the only remedy is to develop
a risk management process for consumers. Consumers need
to understand the IT risks they face, and decide how to deal
with them in an iterative and structured manner: implement
technical mitigations, alter their behavior or simply accept
the risks. Such a process is feasible: enterprises already execute
such processes, and time-saving tools can support the
consumer in her own process. In fact, given our society’s
emphasis on individual responsibilities, skills and devices, a
risk management process for consumers is the logical next
step in improving information security.
