Secure UX Design Method

Developing a how-to guide for researchers, engineers, product managers, designers, and teams who are working with highly at-risk communities.

The Secure UX Design Method is a methodology and taxonomy, which aims to provide a series of actionable best practices and guidelines for those who build tools for and with marginalized communities, from the ideation stage all the way to finished product. The project, being built following a high level of interest from a wide variety of academic, NGO, and community organizations, will feature curricula and an accessible website that will teach people about design and security in plain terms. Included among the curricula will be educational resources like a glossary, short videos, screenshots of good and bad practices, questionnaires, short quizzes, as well as written descriptions and explanations.
