Abstract [en]

Through digital traces that are left behind citizens are more and more exposing their personal data, digital identities to third parties in a conscious or mostly unconscious way. The latter is particularly the case for a variety of cloud computing applications implicitly used by a default citizen. To interact in a digital world and to give away personalized information opens the door for several hazards that may occur - deliberately or not. Consequently a citizen becomes vulnerable in various dimensions. Current research tries to re-apply well-known risk analysis strategies within the new context and in particular to cloud-computing scenarios. Final aim would be to identify individual risks in a qualitative and quantitative manner.
