I am utilising the information on the Internet — generated either by human or by machine to serve two purposes. The first is to disclose the intriguing motivations of organisations and individuals underlying the cybersecurity protection or violation. The second is to measure the impacts of legal policies and technology solutions in the cybersecurity ecosystem.
