On June 24th The Hague Security Delta hosted the Special Session Day of the Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS), the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security and privacy. It combines expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy, and computer science. It is fully in line with HSD’s efforts to share and create knowledge within a multi-stakeholder and multi-disciplinary environment.


The 2015 edition of WEIS will build on past efforts using empirical and analytical tools to not only understand threats, but also to strengthen security and privacy through new types of evaluations.
