Track Description

In today’s digital age, we use IT in almost all areas of our lives: Social media to connect with family and friends; mobile apps for banking or shopping; cloud services to store and flexibly access huge amounts of media, pictures, and videos. So everyday, we leave millions of data traces, and the scale of user data available online is unprecedented. At the same time, recent data scandals showed how lax current privacy protections for user data are.

Likewise, the number of cyber-attacks in industry is growing. Organizations’ assets and critical resources increasingly become digital and thus more transferrable. It is therefore important to protect digital resources in organizations and reduce exposure to inadvertent modifications or information leakage. As a consequence, urgent public discussions at all levels raise concerns about information security and privacy.

This track seeks contributions that address these rising concerns. We especially encourage research that focuses on the management of information security and privacy across a variety of industries, such as, health, insurance, finance, mobility. All methodological approaches are welcome, including but not limited to conceptual, qualitative, quantitative, design science including engineering of novel protection mechanisms, and mixed-methods approaches.

Covered areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Security and Privacy Threats and Challenges • Behavioural Economics of Security and Privacy • Legal Aspects and Regulations of Security and Privacy • Intercultural/Gender Perspectives on Security and Privacy • Assessing the Value of Security and Privacy • Security and Privacy in Applications Fields, including “Big Data” Systems, Blockchain Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Critical Information Infrastructures, E-Commerce, Internet of Things, Mobile and Cloud Computing, Social Media • Employee Information Security Policy Non-/Compliance • Security Monitoring, Audit, Certification, and Control • Advances in Usable Security • Cybercrime • Organizational Privacy (Processes, Policies, etc.) • Individual Privacy Attitudes, Perceptions, and Behaviour • Censorship and Fake News • Cyberbullying and Cybermobbing • Privacy-Enhancing Technologies • Privacy-Preserving Analytics • Privacy Engineering, Transparency, and Control
