IFIP International Symposium on Human Aspects of Information Security & Assurance (HAISA) 2023
It is widely known that security requirements cannot be met just by technical methods and that attitudes, awareness, conduct, and capabilities of the people involved play a key role in protection. Undoubtedly, individuals have the potential to be a valuable asset in achieving security; however, at the moment, problems such as a lack of knowledge and comprehension, along with unreasonable demands from security systems, can severely limit their ability to do so. Assuring sufficient attention and support for user needs should thus be viewed as a critical component of a successful security strategy.
Individuals at all levels (from corporations to homes; from system administrators to end users) must grasp security ideas, how they may apply to them, and how to employ existing technology to safeguard their systems. Furthermore, technology can help by minimizing the demands on people, simplifying security procedures, and automating a number of precautions.
Keeping foregoing in mind, this symposium focuses on information security challenges that affect individuals. It is concerned with the methods that enlighten and guide users’ understanding of security, as well as the technology that can benefit and assist them in attaining security.
