CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, public policy, law, and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders, identified market failures in Internet security, quantified risks of personal data disclosure, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. This year's workshop will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools to not only understand threats, but to strengthen security and privacy through novel evaluations of available solutions.
We have assembled an exciting program of 20 peer-reviewed papers from leading researchers. Sessions include:
The program also includes a panel on government initiatives to spur investment, a panel on private sector incentives, and a keynote address on the Forensic Economics by Dartmouth Professor Eric Zitzewitz.
We encourage scholars, policy makers, and industry experts interested in both market and policy solutions for cybersecurity to attend this workshop. It will be of interest to economists, computer scientists, business school researchers, legal scholars, and government administrators.
Registration is open online: here.
WEIS 2013 will be hosted by the Center for Business and Public Policy at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.
