2015 2015 48th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
This minitrack provides a venue for innovative research that rigorously addresses the risks to information system security and privacy, with a specific focus on individual behaviors within this nomological net. Domains include work related to detecting, mitigating, and preventing both internal and external human threats to organizational security.

These contributions address a range of behavioral security and privacy research questions that will stimulate further discussion and exploration of the key phenomena within this domain. One group of papers addresses the research traditions in our sub-discipline, with papers that conduct a meta-analysis of the compliance literature, review the measurement of information privacy awareness in our literature stream, and evaluate the role of emotions in deviant security behavior. These papers will frame fundamental introspection of our core research theories and constructs so that we may refine our research approaches.  "Seeing the forest and the trees: A metaanalysis of information security policy compliance literature" (
