April 26, 2020 - April 30, 2020 - France

Security is a core practice in organisations at a technical level. But it is since the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) across the European Union that there has been an enforced, and profound, impact on privacy and security practice in organisations. Also, the unprecedented increase in the amount of data available for processing and the ability to manage Big Data and harvest insightful knowledge is leading towards process-centric transformation in organisations. But given the on-going headlining security and privacy breaches, more research is needed into exactly what must be done at the business end of organisations to ensure compliance with GDPR, to as close to guarantee as possible that client and employee data is not hacked, or that organisations or, as we have seen, whole cities, be held to ransom. Privacy and security is not just a technical function but core to all aspects of a business.

Business processes implement business objectives and IT is used as an aid to delivering those process goals. Every process involving people will use some data in its operations, especially in fulfilment, business-to-customer and business-to-business (external facing outputs). How is privacy of employees and customers maintained?

This track in Privacy and Security in Business Process seeks research papers that promote theoretical and technical research as well as emerging applications on a number of topics addressing the theme of privacy, security, business processes and alignment to IT implementation.

Topics include, but not limited to:

 GDPR compliance;
 Privacy and security process patterns;
 Privacy and Security requirements for business processes;
 Security and privacy conflict resolution;
 Privacy and security goal modelling;
 Privacy in the cloud;
 Business strategy and privacy/security alignment;
 Business process modelling and privacy/security
 AI/machine learning for security-privacy alignment.
