2015 Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security
GameSec 2015, the sixth Conference on Decision and Game Theory for Security will take place in London, UK, on November 4-5, 2015.
Nations, corporations, and individuals constantly need to reason about how to protect their sensitive assets in order to ensure economic growth and prosperity. Decision making for security and privacy of infrastructure and information needs a scientific framework that can handle challenges arising from modern-day heterogeneous, dynamic, and large-scale systems.
GameSec solicits theoretical and practical contributions towards a science of decision making in security. In particular, GameSec publishes papers that apply decision and game theory, as well as related techniques such as dynamic control and mechanism design, to build resilient, secure, and dependable networked systems.
The goal of GameSec is to bring together academic and indus- trial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results that highlight the connection between game theory, control, distributed optimization, economic incentives and real world security, reputation, trust and privacy problems in a variety of technological systems. Submissions should solely be original research papers that have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere.

Games and Cyber Security Investment
Abstract: When investing in cyber security resources, information security managers have to follow effective decision-making strategies. We have investigated a number of methodologies to address this challenge from pure game theory through to a hybrid approach using classical optimisation techniques with game theory. We have constructed tools to support this work and conducted a major case study. The lecture will report on our latest findings from this work.
