1st Call For Papers for HICSS2016 Minitrack on Innovative Behavioral IS Security and Privacy Research
 (Internet and the Digital Economy Track)

January 5-8, 2016
Grand Hyatt, Kauai

This minitrack provides a venue for innovative research that rigorously addresses the risks to information system security and privacy, with a specific focus on individual behaviors within this nomological net. Domains include work related to detecting, mitigating, and preventing both internal and external human threats to organizational security. Papers may include theory development, empirical studies (both quantitative and qualitative), case studies, and other high-quality research manuscripts.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
* Creative investigations of actual user security behavior, both positive and negative
* Detecting and mitigating insider threats
* Security policy compliance research - motivations, antecedents, levers of influence
* Analysis of known and unknown modes and vectors of internal and external attack
* SETA (security education, training, and awareness) programs
* Modeling of security and privacy behavioral phenomena and relationships
* Merging methodological topics related to addressing research strategies in IS security
* Translational science perspectives and strategies for IS security research
* Theory development, theory building, and theory testing in information security
* Neurosecurity (NeuroIS) investigations of information security behavior
* Explorations of emerging issues related to the security of the "Internet of Things" (ioT)
This mintrack will provide IS/IT researchers a collaborative forum to share their research approaches. We hope to attract the skills and insights of scholars from a wide set of disciplines, presenting a mix of theoretical and applied papers on threats and mitigation. 

Selected outstanding manuscripts from this minitrack may be recommended to the editors of the European Journal of Information Systems and Decision Sciences Journal to be fast-tracked for the review process.  The Editors of EJIS and DSJ have approved of this process.
