History of the team

Collaborated with Bletchley Park, The National Museum of Computing and funded by EPSRC (EP/G026777/1) during Feb 2009 and Apr 2010, Security and Privacy for All (SP4A) was aimed at increasing public awareness of and engagement with the topic of IT Privacy and Security. The project was centred around public displays at the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park with an accompanying website. In addition to posters, the installation had interactive exhibits which allowed visitors to see what information their wireless devices were broadcasting about them as well as to test their wallet or handbag on an RFID scanner to see if it contained any cards that replied. portrait
