Serena Chen

Design for Security

Serena Chen Product Designer

Today, the internet owns our lives. Every website and app we touch knows us: our personal information, our inane ramblings, our deepest secrets. Security has never been more crucial, yet it’s a rare topic outside of ISM teams and hackers. And through the design lens, it’s completely missing.

Good user experience design is necessary for good security. We can craft paths of least resistance that match paths of most security. We can educate our users on what is good practice and what is security theater. We can build secure flows that are usable, not obstructive or annoying.

Serena Chen

Serena Chen is a professional pixel-pusher focused on security, privacy and trust. She is an ex-physicist/mathematician, one-time teen magazine founder, and hacker at heart. She cares deeply about using technology to build a fairer, kinder, and better world.
