Ersin Dincelli is an Assistant Professor of Information Systems in the Business School at the University of Colorado Denver. He received his PhD in Informatics and an MBA with a specialization in Information Technology Management from the University at Albany, State University of New York (SUNY).
His primary research interests include individual behavior in the context of information security, cybersecurity education, and cross-cultural issues in information systems. In particular, his work focuses on individuals’ decision-making processes and behaviors in the context of information security, social engineering attacks, privacy-invasive technologies (e.g., social media and wearable devices), and how human error in cybersecurity incidents can be reduced through interventions.
He has published in premier journals, such as Journal of the Association for Information Systems and Government Information Quarterly, as well as in proceedings of the leading Information Systems conferences, such as the International Conference on Information Systems, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, and the Americas Conference on Information Systems.
