The average person now checks their phone over 200 times every day. Mary Aiken is the world’s leading expert in forensic cyberpsychology, which combines psychology, criminology and technology to investigate the intersection where technology and human behaviour meet.

Dr Aiken covers a range of subjects, from the impact of screens on the developing child, to the rise of organised cybercrime on the Deep Web.

The Cyber Effect is a fascinating and chilling look at the future we can still do something about. This event change the way you think about the technology you and your family use every day. Mary Aiken’s ground-breaking work inspired the CBS television series CSI: Cyber.
