Abstract

Information security (IS) research has become more sophisticated, relevant, and rigorous with increasing number of scholars in the IS community turning their attention to security research. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) at Carnegie Mellon University are aimed towards reporting information security incidents by making data available. This method of security research improves the richness and depth of their research by seeking out new and unique sources of data that reveal the underlying mechanisms of computer crime and the effectiveness of organizational responses to this behavior. These efforts of the scientific community aimed towards security are expected to push the scientific knowledge of IS security into new realms.
