The pervasiveness of computer networks in our economic system has increased our vulnerability to systems-based attacks. These attacks are addressed in this minitrack, which covers issues related to anticipating, detecting, mitigating and preventing them. In particular, the minitrack focuses on (1) cyber-threats and information security, which includes assaults on computer systems themselves as well as fraud or other actions taken through the use of computers, (2) emergent risks in operations, which comprise heretofore-underestimated risks from the introduction of technology and technology-based infrastructure, (3) compliance and prevention, (4) information sharing (public regulation or private, confidential information pooling of risks and disclosure might be an interesting option), and (5) modeling and theory building of security topics.
