Socio-Technical Aspects in Security and Trust Workshop (STAST)

Monday, 5 December 2016
08:30 - 12:00

Salon 5

Keynote Speaker: Matt Bishop, UC Davis

Why Can't We Do Security Right?
The lack of security and assurance in our computer systems and
supporting network and system infrastructure is clear. What to do about
it is not clear. The difficulty is rooted in the social, political and
economic environment in which computing occurs. Marketing forces,
societal pressures, and most especially peoples' varying needs for
safety and security exacerbate the difficulties of applying technical
remediations to improve security. Numerous solutions have been proposed,
each dealing with one or more aspects of the problems in security but
none of which engage with what it means to be safe and secure in
contemporary society. We have to simultaneously understand security from
the societal, individual and technical perspectives and wrestle a
position on information security from those three perspectives.  This
talk takes a historical position to understand how environmental forces
influence security technology, policy, and procedures. It asks how
information security grew as a practice and where it will go. It will
also provide thoughts on how to improve information security.
