IS Security and Privacy

In today’s era of globally connected organizations, economies, and societies, the pervasive growth of the Internet and significant advances in communications, networking and data gathering and storage technologies have exacerbated the vulnerability of personal and organizational information systems. The extent, frequency, seriousness, and diversity of external attacks to computer systems are unprecedented. At the same time, a number of security and privacy issues originate from “inside” due to malicious or careless human behavior.

The track of “IS Security and Privacy” welcomes IS research design science studies, empirical quantitative and qualitative studies, and theory-development submissions across a diverse range of topics. The track promotes theory building and rigorous empirical research on all IS security and privacy issues, with a special focus on the practical implications of the research.  

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·         Adoption and use of IS technologies and practices

·         Corporate governance of security and privacy

·         Cross-cultural issues in IS security and privacy

·         Deception and deception intention in the context of online trust and security
