WEIS 2014
The 13th Annual Workshop on the Economics of Information Security,
Pennsylvania State University, PA, USA
June 23-24, 2014
(Submissions due 28 February 2014)

The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the
leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information
security and privacy, combining expertise from the fields of
economics, social science, business, law, policy, and computer
science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between
attackers and defenders of information systems, identified market
failures surrounding Internet security, quantified risks of personal
data disclosure, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. The 2014
workshop will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools
not only to understand threats, but also to strengthen security and
privacy through novel evaluations of available solutions.

We encourage economists, computer scientists, legal scholars, business
school researchers, security and privacy specialists, as well as
industry experts to submit their research and participate by attending
the workshop. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to)
empirical and theoretical studies of:

 - Optimal investment in information security
 - Models and analysis of online crime (including botnets, phishing, and spam)
 - Risk management and cyber-insurance
 - Security standards and regulation
 - Cyber-security and privacy policy
 - Security and privacy models and metrics

 - Economics of privacy and anonymity
 - Behavioral security and privacy
 - Vulnerability discovery, disclosure, and patching
 - Cyber-defense strategy and game theory
 - Incentives for information sharing and cooperation
