Due to the huge yet increasing number of people carrying out 
sensitive Internet transactions, security threats hardly ever 
reduce to technical threats. Rather, they are socio-technical, 
as they come from adversaries who combine social
engineering practices with technical skills. 
Humans obviously cannot be treated as machines, as they take 
actions that may seem irrational although they are perfectly 
justifiable from a cognitive and a social perspective. 

Computer security hence appears to acquire more and more the 
facets of an interdisciplinary science with roots in both 
interpretive and positivist research traditions.

The workshop intends to foster an interdisciplinary discussion 
on how to model and analyse the socio-technical aspects 
of modern security systems and on how to protect such 
systems from socio-technical threats and attacks.
