Individual Research Cooperation between Information Systems and the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada

Prof. Peter Buxmann (CYSEC PI and Head of the Information Systems Group) and his research group have sustained a close cooperation with the Sauder School of Business at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, since 2012. In cooperation with Prof. Izak Benbasat and Prof. Hasan Cavusoglu, Prof. Buxmann and his team investigate the perception of IT security risk and risk management in the context of Cloud Computing. They follow an integrated approach, focusing on both the user and the provider perspectives. Prof. Benbasat was ranked as the most influential researcher in the field of management information systems based upon the frequency of citation of his publications, and as the most prolific author in Human-Computer Interaction research. For the years 1990-2010, he is the author with the highest number of publications both in Information Systems Research and in the MIS Quarterly, the two highest ranked journals in management information systems. Prof. Cavusoglu’s work in the area of information security also appeared in leading information system journals, such as the MIS Quarterly. He is frequently quoted in articles related to information privacy and security in newspapers and magazines.
