Doctoral Candidate Presenting at IEEE SoutheastCon 2019

Florida State School of Information doctoral candidate, Asif Shaikh, will be presenting his paper, “Informal IT and Routine Activity Theory – A Theoretical Review,” at The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers annual IEEE Region 3 Technical, Professional, and Student Conference (IEEE SoutheastCon 2019).

The conference, which will be held Thursday, April 11 through Sunday, April 14, 2019, aims to bring together computer scientists, electrical and computer engineering professionals, faculty, and students to share the latest information through technical sessions, tutorials, and exhibits, says the conference’s website.

Shaikh’s paper aligns with this mission as it seeks to explore the dangers of using frequent informal technology (IT) in organizations. Shaikh proposes that utilizing routine activity theory (RAT) “is critical to understand the likelihood of insider threat as a consequence of IT.”
