Published October 3, 2013

Information privacy in the health care environment, how eye tracking and memory explain susceptibility to phishing scams, mobile information privacy and the motivation of hackers are just a few of the topics to be covered at a conference this weekend hosted by the School of Management.

Scholars from around the world will gather at the 2013 Dewald Roode Workshop on Information Systems Security Research, being held Oct. 4-5 in Niagara Falls, N.Y.

The workshop is the flagship event of the IFIP WG8.11/11.13, the International Federation for Information Processing, aimed at advancing the research discipline of information systems security through the creation, dissemination and preservation of well-formed research. It is held annually in locations around the globe. The inaugural event was held in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2009.

H. Raghav Rao, SUNY Distinguished Service Professor in the UB School of Management and vice chair of IFIP 8.11, serves as general chair of the event; Raj Sharman, associate professor of management science systems, serves as local events chair.
