Introducing Guest Blogger Sasha Romanosky
I am thrilled to introduce Sasha Romanosky who will be guest blogging with us this month. Sasha holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Calgary and is currently a PhD student in the Heinz College of Public Policy and Information Systems at Carnegie Mellon University. After working for over a decade in IT security, Sasha now researches topics that intersect data security, privacy, law, and economics. His current focus is on data breaches, their causes and consequences, and alternative policy approaches that can be employed to reduce the resulting social loss.
His recent work includes:
Romanosky, S., Telang, R. and Acquisti, A., Do Data Breach Disclosure Laws Reduce Identity Theft?, (forthcoming in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management).
Romanosky, S., Sharp, R., and Acquisti, A. (2010), Data Breaches and Identity Theft: When is Mandatory Disclosure Optimal?, The Ninth Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS), Harvard University, Cambridge, MA.
