For Ken Guo it is not enough to know that accounting firms and their staff are using technology, its how they are using it that intrigues him.

The assistant professor of accounting, who joined Cal State Fullerton this fall, has made numerous presentations and authored numerous papers regarding technology. His current research projects include information security management, security compliance and assurance behaviors and firm performance and information systems.

He is a co-author of "Identity Theft and Fraud: Evaluating and Managing Risk," published last year by University of Ottawa Press, and "Understanding Nonmalicious Security Violations in the Workplace: A Composite Behavior Model" published in the fall 2011 issue of the Journal of Management Information Systems.

Guo earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Zhejiang University in China, then immigrated to Canada where he earned his master of science in business from the University of British Columbia.

Guo spend a number of years working, mostly in data analysis, then completed his doctorate in business administration-information systems from McMaster University in 2010. He taught at Western New England University before joining CSUF.
