Completed Research and ERFs submissions are due by March 1st, 2019 at
10:00 am PST.

2019 Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS), Cancún, México.

Track: Information Security and Privacy
Mini-track: Security Breaches, Forensics, and Incident Management


We invite you to submit to the “Security Breaches, Forensics, and
Incident Management” mini-track under the “Information Security and
Privacy” track for AMCIS 2019 given your research related to Digital
Crimes, Forensics, and Post-Incident Management. If after looking over
the track and mini-track descriptions, you have questions please
contact us. Thank you for reading over the call for papers and we look
forward to your potential submission.

Track Description

Cybersecurity remains a key challenge for organizations despite
massive investments over the last two decades. While technological
advancements have been made to improve cybersecurity, human
vulnerabilities have become the weakest link in security. High profile
events such as defections, espionage, and massive data breaches have
led the public to question their own expectations of privacy. While
there is an abundance of practices and techniques for employing
cybersecurity, many hard problems remain unanswered.

The purpose of this track is to provide a forum for theoretical
developments, empirical research findings, case studies,
methodologies, artifacts, and other high-quality manuscripts.
Sponsored by SIGSEC, we seek to address important questions arising
from emerging developments in information security, such as security
analytics, financial crimes, security analytics, and digital
forensics? How do system defenders share information to mitigate
vulnerabilities and exploits? Does pervasive data collection deter
privacy-conscious individuals? Do regulations and policies influence
employee security behaviors and organizational security postures?

Mini-track description

Cyber criminals increasingly target organizations to steal data and to
sabotage business operations. Therefore, it is important that we
constantly improve our understanding of how organizations may better
detect, respond, and learn from incidents and security breaches. New
knowledge will help organizational leaders minimize the adverse
impacts of security breaches on operations, victims (internal and
external), systems, and market performance. New knowledge may also
help shield an organization from potential legal ramifications by
demonstrating due diligence. In this mini-track, we explore these
issues via both technical and managerial perspectives. For
technologies and processes, we focus on digital forensics that are
critical to effective incident and security breach responses. For
management strategies, we focus on risk communication, incident
response procedures, trust repair, and management of victim responses.

Modern organizations are subject to increased multi-faceted threats
from security breaches. Victim organizations often suffer losses in
internal operations,market performance, consumer trust, as well as
legal consequences. To respond to a security incident (e.g., data
breaches), organizations draw on digital forensics processes and
techniques to determine cause, prosecute offenders, and provide
insight into the attack vectors deployed. Meanwhile, organizational
leaders adopt management strategies to alleviate the adverse impacts
of an attack on employees/customers and the society at large. Efforts
are also necessary to ensure compliance with laws and regulations
(e.g., GDPR). This mini-track seeks studies exploring how technical
and managerial controls, policies, procedures, and options can
strengthen an organization’s security posture and minimize the likely
impacts of security incidents. Examples topics include (but are not
limited to):

·         The impact of digital forensics approaches, techniques,
and/or tools on an organization’s defense posture and residual risk
·         Digital forensic case studies
·         Forensic data analytics and organizational performance
·         Security policies, investment, and educational programs
·         Economic impacts of security incidents on an organization
·         Affective and behavioral responses of individual victims
·         Trust repair strategies on victims
·         Organizational response tactics on incident detection,
reporting, and victim notification
·         Detection of management misbehavior (e.g., insider trading)
related to security breaches
·         Advances in network forensics to include AI-guided IDPSs
·         SIEM systems as a means to better monitor overall
organizational security postures
