Business intelligence (BI) is increasingly essential to enterprise success. Huge volumes of data are now being collected every day, and BI supports organisational decision-making activities by analysing the collected data.
Recently there has been a realisation that BI has an impact on security. One aspect of this is that BI can be used to improve an organisation’s security, e.g. for intrusion detection. Another aspect is that misuse of BI capabilities can pose potential privacy and security threats.
In light of this, this issue will focus on presenting innovative, high-quality research results in any matters related to the growing field of BI and security management integration.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Critical infrastructure protection
- Data quality, privacy and security measures
- Effects of distributed data sources on privacy and security
- Knowledge discovery and privacy
- Organisational security
- Privacy-preserving data analysis
- Security leaks in existing BI techniques
- Security and privacy threats imposed by BI techniques and possible solutions
- Threats, vulnerabilities and risk management
- Trust management
The above areas are just indicative and this special issue would welcome papers discussing other topics related to the integration of BI and security management.
