Biography:

Anthony Vance is an Associate Professor of Information Systems in the Marriott School of Management of Brigham Young University. He has earned Ph.D. degrees in Information Systems from Georgia State University, USA; the University of Paris—Dauphine, France; and the University of Oulu, Finland. He received a B.S. in IS and Masters of Information Systems Management (MISM) from Brigham Young University, during which he was also enrolled in the IS Ph.D. preparation program. He currently is an associate editor at MIS Quarterly and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of the Association for Information Systems.

His previous experience includes working as a visiting research professor in the Information Systems Security Research Center at the University of Oulu. He also worked as an information security consultant and fraud analyst for Deloitte. His work is published in outlets such as MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Journal of Management Information Systems, Journal of the Association for Information Systems, European Journal of Information Systems, Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, and Proceedings of the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (CHI). His research focuses on behavioral and neuroscience applications to information security.
