Rahul Telang: Economics of Information Security

Rahul Telang is a Professor of Information Systems and Management at the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University and at the Tepper School of Business (Courtesy). He is interested in economics of information security and privacy broadly. His research predominantly uses empirical methods to examine the incentives of various parties (users, firms and hackers) in investing in security and privacy, why markets fail, how to create a useful policy framework and how to measure the effectiveness of such policies. His work has explored the challenges of vulnerability disclosure, vulnerability markets and their role in generating optimal outcomes. Recently, he has been examining the role of data breach policies.
