RISI 2013: The Third International Workshop on
Resilience and IT-Risk in Social Infrastructures

within ARES 2013
September 2nd - 6th, 2013
University of Regensburg
Regensburg, Germany

!!! March 22th, 2013 !!!



Resilience gains importance for sustainable welfare of societies with respect to their acceptable adaption to interferences of all kind. The aim is to identify current states of systems and to predict their development. In order to prepare for expected interferences and to response to unexpected, inevitable interferences in real-time, current initiatives in computer science aim to analyze huge amount of data from public and private domains with adaptive IT systems, e.g. Cloud Computing.

Realizing such analyzing services implies availability of authentic, personal data form different origins, their aggregation, and secondary use. These services are "data-centric" by definition. One main challenge to be solved for achieving such reliable data-centric services within acceptable risks is cross-domain processing of (personal) data in compliance to law, business rules and social norms. Whereas many security solutions are well studied for models and their implementation for separated security domains, this is not the case for data-centric services and adaptive IT systems.

The aim of the RISI 2013 workshop is to identify research problems and to discuss risk scenarios with data-centric services regarding their support for "Resilience in Social Infrastructures" as well as the necessity to take non-technical aspects into consideration. We encourage academic researchers and industry experts to present and discuss novel ideas and ongoing work. Contributions addressing promising approaches to provide and manage resilient infrastructures with data-centric services are invited as research in progress and best practices.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Risk assessment and vulnerability analysis for data-centric services
* Economics of controls
* Risk measurements for data-centric services
* Identification of vulnerabilities in service-oriented computing/data-centric services
* Methods of Business Intelligence and their suitability for data-centric services
* Management of data quality in data-centric services
* Risk scenarios of data-centric services

Policy and IT security management for data-centric services
* Policy management for processing of personal data
* Policy enforcement vs. monitoring and their risks for data-centric services
* Anonymity/pseudonymity and data-centric services
* Legal implications of data-centric services and security mechanisms

Methods for resilience & best practices
* Privacy and security in participatory sensing
* Critical information infrastructure protection
* Human-centric resilience systems
* Measurements of resilience
* Case studies
