Abstract

The economics of information security is an emerging area of study. The economics of information security is cross-disciplinary as much as interdisciplinary. Economics of information security is the explicit combination of primary disciplines.

Economics of informations security has the potential to inform security from policy and economics perspectives. Following its now confirmed tradition of cross-disciplinary publication, economics of information security is unified as an intellectual endeavor by a series of workshops. The best from those workshops develops into journal special issues and texts. This works reviews the organization and findings of economics of information security.
