SPBP’17: Workshop on Security and Privacy-enhanced Business Process Management

September 11, 2017, Barcelona, Spain

In conjunction with the 15th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2017)


Despite the growing demand for business processes that comply with security and privacy policies, security and privacy incidents caused by erroneous workflow specifications are regrettably common. This is, in part, because business process management, security and privacy are seldom addressed together, thereby hindering the development of trustworthy, privacy and security-compliant business processes.

The central theme of the workshop is the interplay between business process management (BPM), security, and privacy management. The goal is to establish a venue to discuss business process privacy and integrity management, for instance by using the new and emerging technologies including

  • blockchain and smart contracts,
  • distributed ledgers,
  • distributed process mining,
  • privacy-aware and privacy enhancing technologies,

and more.

The workshop will also welcome traditional submissions on security and security risk management, including compliance checking, privacy and security policies, monitoring and measuring security activities within business processes.
