CONCEPT AND GOAL
Successful attacks on information systems often combine social engineering practices with technical skills. Research in social sciences and usable security has demonstrated that insecure behavior can be justified from cognitive, emotional, and social perspectives and to improve security, technology must adapt to the users. However, finding the right balance between the technical and the social security measures remains largely unexplored, which motivates the need for this workshop.
There is no established holistic research in security, and the respective communities tend to offload on each other parts of problems that they consider to be out of scope, an attitude that results in deficient or unsuitable security solutions.
The workshop intends to stimulate an exchange of ideas and experiences on how to design systems that are secure in the real world where they interact with non-expert users. It aims at bringing together experts in various areas of computer security and in social and behavioral sciences.
The final proceedings will be published with the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series
We welcome qualitative and quantitative research approaches from academia and industry
