Postdoctoral Research Fellow at RISE Research Institutes of Sweden
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Mazaher Kianpour, and I am a researcher with a passion for exploring the intersection of technology and economics. I earned my Ph.D. in Information Security from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), where I developed a deep understanding of the complex economic and policy issues that surround cybersecurity in today's digital age. Prior to that, I obtained my Master's degree in Computer Engineering from Shahid Beheshti University in Iran, where I gained hands-on experience in software development and network security.
Throughout my academic and professional career, I have been fascinated by the ways in which technology and economics shape our world. As a cybersecurity economist, I am particularly interested in exploring how economic incentives can be used to promote better cybersecurity practices and reduce the risks of cyberattacks. I believe that by understanding the economic forces at work in the cybersecurity landscape, we can develop more effective policies, strategies, and solutions that benefit both individuals and organizations.
In my free time, I enjoy reading about new trends and developments in cybersecurity and economics, as well as hiking, cooking, and spending time with my family. I am excited to continue exploring this fascinating field and to contribute to meaningful progress in cybersecurity economics.
I have been selected as a judge in 2023 Geneva Cyber 9/12 Strategy Challenge.
