This workshop aims to encourage research that provides insights into the issue of cybersecurity management. Most organizations now have to be careful in assessing risks associated with data science activities. The massive collection and storage of user data exposes organizations to significant risks associated with any potential data breach arising from an improper handling of such data. For data protection, the reliance on technological solutions alone is inadequate and any successful effort requires a business-centric approach to mitigate risk. Further, the diffusion of computer technologies has resulted in an unprecedented global expansion of cybercriminal activities that are rapidly evolving, with new techniques being developed and exploited by hackers worldwide.

Organizations are also witnessing constant IT misuse by insiders leading to significant security issues. We need a greater understanding of ways to de-incentivize the impetus that drives individuals and groups to circumvent cybersecurity policies. Overall, it has become imperative to effectively protect information assets. We need to investigate the challenges and opportunities to effectively manage an organization’s cybersecurity requirements and resources. This workshop solicits promising papers that will enhance our understanding about cybersecurity management.
