The AIS Special Interest Group on Information Security and Privacy (SIGSEC) provides networking opportunities for professionals who conduct research, develop and/or teach about information security, assurance, digital forensics, privacy, and information system risk management and auditing. The group hosts an annual Workshop on Information Security and Privacy (WISP) as a pre-ICIS event. The workshop is intended to be a forum for scholars, practitioners, and doctoral students interested in information security and privacy to exchange ideas and encourage collaboration amongst members of the SIGSEC community.
At the 7th annual WISP, SIGSEC granted three $1,000 travel awards to doctoral students with accepted papers to attend the workshop held on December 10, 2016 in Dublin, Ireland. SIGSEC leadership established a special committee charged to select the top three doctoral student papers and issue the award.
As a result of the committee’s strong leadership and dedication, Tobias Dehling, University of Kassel, Germany, Tian Jian (TJ) Zhang, Oklahoma State University, USA, and Michele Maasberg, University of Texas at San Antonio, USA were selected to receive to the $1,000 travel award, complimentary WISP registration and an official AIS certificate.
