DRW is intended to facilitate active discussions among workshop members on key issues of information system security, and to provide valuable and actionable feedback on their research. Workshop papers generally are successfully developed for further consideration at important journals.

One such important Journal, Computers & Security, has committed to providing a special issue dedicated to selected papers from the 2019 DRW. This special issue will be edited by Tom Stafford and Nicole Bebe, and will be a special feature of this year’s workshop.
