Abstract: An increasing number of security and privacy researchers are conducting research with the intention of informing public policy discussions. I will talk about how I got interested in public policy and discuss a wide range of research projects I've worked on over the past 25 years that had some impact on public policy discussions including research on the usability of privacy tools, the cost of reading privacy policies, various types of privacy labels, password policy, and the California privacy choice icon.
