Call for Papers
The human element is often considered the weakest element in security. Although many kinds of humans interact with systems that are designed to be secure, one particular type of human is especially important, the security information worker. Security information workers include:
- Software developers, who design and build software that manages and protects sensitive information;
- System administrators, who deploy and manage security-sensitive software and hardware systems; and
- Intelligence analysts, who collect and analyze data about security matters to understand information and make predictions
This workshop aims to develop and stimulate discussion about security information workers. We will consider papers including, but not limited to:
- Empirical studies of security information workers, including experiments, field studies, and surveys;
- New tools designed to assist security information workers;
- Infrastructure for better understanding security information workers;
- Information visualization and other techniques designed to help security information workers do their jobs;
- Evaluations of tools and techniques for security information workers.
Much security research could be considered about security information workers; for instance, tools that automatically find defects in program code could be construed to help software developers. However, successful submissions to this workshop will explicitly be informed by an understanding of how security information workers do their jobs, and the results will explicitly how we understand security information workers.
