Over the past several years security has dominated the corporate agenda. While there has been significant effort expended in protecting organizational resources, security incidents have been on the rise. There has also been a paucity of research in dealing with the range of threats. The Annual Security Conference brings together researchers from academia and industry to share their experiences and build alliances for furthering our understanding of this important area. The event is jointly organized by the following institutions: Virginia Commonwealth University (USA); University of Plymouth (UK); Oklahoma State University (USA) and University of South Australia (Australia).
