Privacy Landscape Call- Future of Privacy Forum
Jul 16 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Each month, the Future of Privacy Forum hosts a call with thought leaders to discuss topical issues related to privacy and responsible data use.

FPF’s monthly Privacy Landscape scheduled for July 16, 2019 from 4pm-5pm ET will focus on the intersection of privacy and visual design. This topic is particularly salient in light of ongoing discussions regarding the design of notices and consent mechanisms under GDPR and CCPA, as well as policymaker interest in design-based nudges or “dark patterns.”

We are fortunate to be joined by Ilana Westerman, CEO of Create With Context. Ilana spearheads the Digital Trust Initiative and will discuss the Initiative’s new Brown Bag Series, focusing on the top 5 mistakes companies make when trying to create trusted experiences, how to engage with internal stakeholders and practitioners to avoid these pitfalls, and more! We will have ample time for Q&A.

Please note: this call will include a real-time visual presentation – we will be showing visual examples of trusted design. We strongly encourage you to join via the Zoom app on desktop or mobile so you can see the presentation. We are providing a dial-in option as well for folks who cannot use the Zoom app or Zoom in-browser viewer. We will mute callers’ audio and video by default.

Connection info for US callers and commonly requested international numbers are below. If you need an additional country-specific dial-in, please let me know.

We look forward to hearing from everyone – it promises to be a great call!

The aim of the symposium is to foster interaction among diverse communities of research and practice using contextual integrity to reason about privacy, and to design and evaluate, craft regulation, and generate formal logics for privacy.

As the goal of the workshop is to foster discussion around works in progress, the workshop will not publish formal proceedings (so as to not preclude the publication of subsequent versions of those works, improved by workshop feedback). However, with authors’ permission, we will post accepted submissions on the website.

Sep 9 – Sep 10 all-day
The Oxford /OASIS International Workshop: Delivering Data Protection in Real Time @ Department of Computer Science Wolfson Building  | England | United Kingdom

OASIS and University of Oxford will host a unique, two-day international workshop to bring together software engineers, policy makers, lawyers, practitioners, technologists and independent data protection/privacy experts from industry, standards communities, regulators, government, and academia to share lessons learnt about data protection, discuss how to address challenges in today’s society from a multistakeholder perspective.

In this workshop, we hope to bring together new insights on the state of the art in real-time data protection service delivery, by identifying clear gaps common across various stakeholders that need to be filled, and promising industry and research initia-tives attempting to build solutions to hard problems.

The 1st Workshop on Security, Privacy, Organizations, and Systems Engineering @ ESORICS 2019 @ Alvisse Parc Hotel
Sep 23 – Sep 27 all-day
The 1st Workshop on Security, Privacy, Organizations, and Systems Engineering @ ESORICS 2019 @ Alvisse Parc Hotel | Luxembourg | District de Luxembourg | Luxembourg

About the Workshop

Over the past decades, a multitude of security and privacy enhancing technologies has been developed and brought to considerable maturity. However, the design and engineering of such technologies often ignores the organizational context that respective technologies are to be applied in. This workshop aims to bring together engineering and organizational/behavioral scientists active in the field of security and privacy in order to facilitate a better match between those – so far – largely disconnected perspectives. It’s explicit goal is to pave the way for technical security and privacy mechanisms and systems that match organizational needs and givens better than current ones.

Call for Papers

Over the past decades, a multitude of security and privacy enhancing technologies has been developed and brought to considerable maturity. However, the design and engineering of such technologies often ignores the organizational context that respective technologies are to be applied in. A large and hierarchical organization, for example, calls for significantly different security and privacy practices and respective technologies than an agile, small startup. Similarly, whenever employees’ behavior plays a significant role for the ultimate level of security and privacy provided, their individual interests and incentives as well as typical behavioral patterns must be taken into account and materialized in concrete technical solutions and practices. Even though research on security- and privacy-related technologies increasingly takes into account questions of practical applicability in realistic scenarios, respective approaches are typically still rooted in the technical domain alone, motivated by technical givens and constraints from the practice.

On the other hand, a substantial body of organization-related security and privacy research already exists, incorporating aspects like decision and governance structures, individual interests and incentives of employees, organizational roles and procedures, organizational as well as national culture, or business models and organizational goals. Nonetheless, these research activities are only seldomly translated into concrete technical mechanisms, frameworks, and systems.

This disconnection between rather technical and rather organization-related security and privacy research leaves substantial room for improving the fit between concrete technologies on the one and organizational practices on the other hand. Achieving a better fit between these two sides through security and privacy technologies that soundly incorporate organizational and behavioral theories and practices promises substantial benefits for organizations and data subjects, engineers, policy makers, and society as a whole.

The aim of this workshop is therefore to discuss, exchange, and develop ideas and questions regarding the design and engineering of technical security and privacy mechanisms with particular reference to organizational contexts. We invite papers from researchers and practitioners working in security- and privacy-related systems engineering as well as in the field of organizational science to submit their original papers to this workshop. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Security and privacy technologies consciously addressing different organizational structures
  • Security and privacy technologies and individual behavior
  • Security and privacy technologies and organizational / national cultures
  • Security and privacy technologies for and in unusual organizational settings
  • Engineering methods, frameworks, and assessment approaches for addressing the above subjects in novel ways

We particularly welcome papers explicitly translating findings and insights from organizational and behavioral theory into the concrete design and engineering of technical security and privacy mechanisms as well as papers evaluating, assessing, or scrutinizing existing security and privacy technologies against actual organizational and behavioral theories and/or givens from the practice. Papers without relation to concrete technologies are, however, not excluded in general.

Types of Papers

Besides regular (max. 16 pages) and short (max. 8 pages) papers, we also invite practical demonstrations, intermediate reports, and mini-tutorials on respective technologies currently under development. Such contributions should be consciously tailored to inspire more in-depth discussions. Submissions falling under this category should describe the proposed contribution to the workshop in no more than 4 pages and be explicitly marked as such during the submission process.

Accepted papers will be published in a joint LNCS proceedings together with two other ESORICS workshops. Additional publication opportunities for extended papers in a special issue of an Open Access Journal are discussed.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one author must register.

Submissions

Submissions must be done via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spose2019 (see also https://easychair.org/cfp/SPOSE2019). Submissions must be formatted according to the LNCS-Template.

Important dates (might be subject to change, depending on publication constraints)

  • Submission deadline: June 14, 2019 extended to June 28, 2019 (23:59 CEST)
  • Review deadline: July 19, 2019
