Certain usable security problems—like password selection, or warning behavior—are well-studied and oft-discussed at conferences. What problems aren't we addressing as a community? Where is more research needed, and why aren't more researchers working on those problems? In this discussion, the audience will work together to brainstorm for new research topics in the area of usable security.

To kick off the discussion, I'll start by talking about the need for more research on global and underserved communities. Until recently, most research has focused on university students. I'll share previously unpublished Chrome data that illustrates how different groups of people use and experience the Internet very differently. How can we do better at capturing diverse perspectives in user research? Then, it'll be your turn to pitch questions as we open up the floor for discussion. Should we be focusing more on the Internet of Things, self-driving software, or something else altogether...?
