Information Privacy and Information Security

With the ubiquitous spread of information systems throughout most areas of our daily lives – spanning from government, to banking, health management, home automation, and mobile computing – meeting the challenges of information privacy and information security is the hot issue for various stakeholders around the globe. Moreover, with the proliferation of social media and mobile computing, addressing concerns over information privacy and information security has grown in importance and triggered public discussions at all levels. Today, the scale of information available to information system providers is unprecedented. Millions of users make, for instance, their personal information readily available on social media platforms. In addition, increasing use of smartphones spurs the growth of mobile applications allowing also for location-based capture of user behavior. Especially users with low internet literacy (eg, children, seniors) are at risk for the emerging and manifesting threats.
This track seeks contributions that address the prevalent challenges of information privacy and information security. We especially encourage submissions (full research papers, prototype papers, student papers) focused on the social web and mobile computing across a variety of industries (eg, health, social, finance, location-based services). All methodological approaches are welcome in this track, including, but not limited to design science research, experiments, qualitative and quantitative research, case studies, as well as conceptual papers.
