The Fourth International Workshop on Resilience and IT-Risk in Social Infrastructures
(RISI 2014)

To be held in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2014 -

September 8th-12th, 2014
University of Fribourg
Fribourg, Switzerland

Resilience gains importance for sustainable welfare of societies with respect to their acceptable adaption to interferences of all kind. 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 and to share derived information with adaptive IT systems, e.g. social networks.

Realizing adequate IT services implies availability of sufficient authentic, partly personal data from 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 2014 workshop is to identify research problems and to discuss risk scenarios with data-centric services regarding their support for improving "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
