Abstract
This is a thesis report for the Master’s program in Risk Management and Safety Engineering at Lund University. It is also a part of the research project Assessing acceptance of privacy-invasive ICT Solutions at the Royal Institute of Technology. Its aim is to examine how the perception and acceptance of privacy-invasive technology is determined by demographics, context and cognitive factors. The main focus of the report is on public risk management with the use of technical security measures. First, an extensive literature review on the areas of privacy and risk perception is made in order to obtain a comprehensive and objective picture of the current state of research. This knowledge is then used to formulate hypotheses that are used to... (More)
This is a thesis report for the Master’s program in Risk Management and Safety Engineering at Lund University. It is also a part of the research project Assessing acceptance of privacy-invasive ICT Solutions at the Royal Institute of Technology. Its aim is to examine how the perception and acceptance of privacy-invasive technology is determined by demographics, context and cognitive factors. The main focus of the report is on public risk management with the use of technical security measures. First, an extensive literature review on the areas of privacy and risk perception is made in order to obtain a comprehensive and objective picture of the current state of research. This knowledge is then used to formulate hypotheses that are used to analyze the data from an already completed survey. The analyses are performed by the use of statistical methods in the computer software SPSS Statistics. These tests provide support for a connection between whether respondents have children or not, and how acceptable they find the security technologies to be. It’s not possible to observe any differences between the sexes, and there is a weak, albeit not statistically significant, correlation with age. Furthermore, it is clear that the cognitive factors studied shows strong correlation with acceptance and perception of privacy-invasive security measures. Finally, the design of the survey and the results are discussed. Overall, it is noted that it is difficult to draw any conclusions from the results until further studies have been carried out. (Less)
