                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

                WORKSHOP TOPICS


                * Requirements for socio-technical systems

                * Feasibility of policies from the socio-technical perspective

                * Threat models that combine technical and human-centred strategies

                * Technical and social factors that influence decision making in

                security and privacy

                * Balance between technical measures and social strategies in ensuring

                security and privacy

                * Studies of real-world security incidents from the socio-technical


                * Social factors that influence changes in organizations security

                policies and processes

                * Lessons learned from holistic design and deployment of security

                mechanisms and policies

                * Models of user behaviour and user interactions with technology

                * Perceptions of security, risk and trust and their influence on human


                * Interplay of law, ethics and politics with security and privacy measures

                * Social engineering, persuasion, and other deception techniques

                * Socio-technical analysis of security incidents

                * Strategies, methodology and guidelines for socio-technical and

                cyber-security intelligence analysis

                We welcome qualitative and quantitative research approaches from

                academia and industry
