Workshop Background and Goals
Information Systems Security is one of the most pressing challenges facing all kind of organisations today. Although many companies have discovered how critical information is to the success of their business or operations, very few have managed to be effective in keeping their information safe, in avoiding unauthorised access, preventing intrusions, stopping secret information disclosure, etc.
Nowadays, rapid technological advances are stimulating a greater use of information systems in organisations world-wide, which handle large quantities of data, managed by huge databases and datawarehouses. In addition, information systems quite frequently manage information that can be considered sensitive, since it is related to certain intimate or personal aspects of persons (beliefs, medical data, sexual tendencies, etc.) and which must be specially protected.
Many organisations, including not only companies but also governments of several countries, are now realising how security problems can affect both business success and citizen rights, and they are proposing security policies, security planning, personal data protection laws, etc.
All of these, including technological, legislative, ethical and political factors, justifies the importance of secure information systems, and encourage us to research in new techniques, models and methodologies, which could aid designers developing and implanting safe information systems which both protect information and keep within the law.
This workshop will serve as a forum to gather academics, researchers, practitioners and students in the field of security in information systems. The workshop will present new developments, lessons learned from real world cases, and would provide the exchange of ideas and discussion on specific areas.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- Methodologies for security information systems
