Call For Papers

We are soliciting papers for a special issue in Journal of Information Privacy & Security (JIPS). Recent NSF “Secure and Trustworthy Cyberspace” program solicitation recognizes the importance of human behavior when designing, building and using cyber security technology. Studies show that incorporating an understanding of human behavior into cyber security products and processes can lead to more effective technology (Pfleeger & Caputo, 2012).

With the rapid development of emerging technologies such as Web 2.0, social media, mobile technology, virtual environment, online role-playing games, massive open online course (MOOC) systems, cloud computing and Internet of Things, better understanding of human behaviors with these emerging technologies is greatly needed. This special issue of JIPS is intended to provide an important venue for collecting high quality research and papers relating to behavioral information security research with emerging technologies.

Topics of Interest (but are not limited to):
• Encouraging information security behavior with the use of emerging technologies in organizations
• Promoting secure behavior with emerging technologies among Internet users
• Organizations’ security & privacy concerns with emerging technologies
• Leveraging behavioral science to mitigate cyber security risk
• Behavioral and cognitive research into security design, development, implementation, and use of emerging technologies
• Methods to train end-users to improve their cyber security behavior
• End-users’ motivation of practicing secure behavior with emerging technologies
• Strategies for decreasing risky user behavior with emerging technologies
• Human factor and information security behavior
• Social engineering and emerging technologies
• Case studies of behavior information security in different industries such as health care, business, engineering, entertainment and education
• Other related topics

Tentative Important Dates:
Initial submissions due: February 15, 2014
Notification to authors: March 31, 2014
Revised papers due: May 15, 2014
Publication of the issue: Fall or Winter of 2014
