Description and Topics of Interest:

Information security and privacy becomes increasingly important in today’s networked and global business environment. Organizations are threatened by both internal and external attacks that have become more diversified and sophisticated than ever. Both individuals and organizations are under a greater risk of privacy breaches as their personal information and valuable data might be collected by unidentified automated programs. The latest innovations such as artificial intelligence, big data, mobile technologies, and cloud computing further pose an unprecedented challenge for information security and privacy protection. Thus, it is imperative to better understand government policies, business strategies, technological solutions, and sound practices that can address security and privacy issues.


This track provides a forum for scholars to discuss and exchange ideas on information security and privacy research. We seek to address important questions on security and privacy arising from the aforementioned issues, such as: What are the implications of latest technologies for information security and privacy? How can organizations better protect security and privacy in the artificial intelligence or big data business context? What government interventions can improve the current state of information security and privacy? How should organizations manage employees to prevent computer misuse, security incidents, and privacy breaches? What are the impacts of latest policies and technologies concerning security and privacy on various business outcomes? How should firms design and implement “best” security and privacy practices in their IT systems?


The track welcomes both empirical and theoretical submissions using behavioral, data science, economic, and managerial methodologies. The topics of interests include, but are not limited to:
