Call For Papers

Experts from different domains agree that focusing on security is a social responsibility. Every actor in society from private citizens to companies and governments should do their part to protect IT infrastructures and data for the benefit of all.

In particular disinformation through Social Media is still an emerging frontier for cyber security.

Social Media are deemed to have a huge role in the spread of misinformation.

This has proven to have a huge impact across multiple domains in everyday life and are increasingly recognized as a threat to national security, democracy, collective cohesion and individuals’ freedom.

The spread of fake news, the possibility of losing sensitive information, the scant knowledge of the average citizen about what companies and states can do with their data for surveillance purposes is a trending, but under-investigated, topic.

As an interdisciplinary community, we believe that new alliances and partnerships must emerge among the three main actors on the ground: citizens, industry and government . Policy makers need to recognize cyberattacks as a national security risk, introducing a cybersecurity risk in policy design. In order to actively support research and knowledge exchange on topics involving the malicious effects derived from disinformation through social media, the organizers of this special session encourage contributions that: model or evaluate the security technical concerns involving media control, censorship, news filters; highlight the relationship between technology and the general public and how to increase the awareness that cyberattacks do not happen only to state and companies, but to single individual (through more subtle ways to steal and abuse data).
