Interdisciplinary Studies in Information Security and Privacy Workshop

Conference / Symposium
For NYU Community


Creating trustworthy information systems is one of the major challenges of our networked society, demanding interdisciplinary solutions that are globally robust but responsive to particular needs and constraints of different cultures. The secure systems we design will interact with legal, policy, business, and technical environments in many countries. This workshop brings together an interdisciplinary and international set of researchers and practitioners to meet this challenge, including experts in the business, public administration, economic, legal and technological aspects of security and privacy. Internationally recognized security expert Eugene Spafford will deliver a keynote address. The workshop will foster collaboration among academics and experts with deep understanding of the non-technical issues in various nations and cultures, developing local approaches to enhancing security and privacy.
