Keynote I: Social Engineering - Human Factors as the Weakest Link in the Chain


Tobias Arnold

Social engineering refers to any technique of social and psychological manipulation aimed at getting a person to perform a specific action for illegitimate reasons. While social engineering has always existed, it has significantly evolved with information and communications technology, to such a point that a huge number of today’s cyber attacks include some form of social engineering.

This talk will convey an understanding of common threats emerging from different attacks using social engineering. In addition to classic phishing attacks targeting passwords or other confidential data, the talk will also present various other social engineering techniques that can be utilized by attackers during on-site investigations. This includes techniques of baiting, tailgaiting or pretexting. Several practical examples are intended to create and increase awareness of possible attack scenarios.

Keynote II: From Activity- to Object-centric Business Process Support: Challenges, Technologies, Applications


Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert
Ulm University, Institute of Databases and Information Systems, Ulm

The utmost importance of data for knowledge-intensive business processes has led to the emergence of object-centric and data-driven process management approaches. By tightly integrating process and data, which more or less constitute two sides of the same coin, these approaches differ significantly from the widely used activity-centric process paradigm, aiming at the support of semi- or unstructured processes and offering by far the highest flexibility. The progress of an object-centric process depends on the availability of object data rather than on the completion of black-box activities. Moreover, the focus has shifted from large, monolithic processes towards small data-driven processes (i.e., object lifecylces), which are running concurrently, but need to interact with each other to reach a given business goal. The keynote speech gives insights into the evolution from activity- to object-centric business process management (BPM) approaches with a focus on process flexibility issues. Moreover, it deals with fundamental concepts, features and enabling technologies of activity- and object-centric approaches to business process management. Finally, it discusses how object-centric process management approaches enable new avenues with respect to the engineering, automation, and monitoring of large-scale business processes in the era of digitization and Industry 4.0.

Keynote III: Carbon-Aware Process Execution for Green Business Process Management


Philipp Hehnle
envite consulting GmbH, Stuttgart

Traditional business process management (BPM) focuses on the improvement of performance indicators such as time, costs and quality. Ecological aspects are however usually not considered as an equal performance indicator, even though climate change presents us with the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions. In this context, an overview of Green BPM approaches is presented to strengthen the awareness among people and organisations about the impact of business processes on the climate. Furthermore, this talk discusses an approach for carbon-aware process execution, which allows to automatically postpone energy-intensive activities to times at which energy with low CO2 emissions, e.g. solar energy, is better available while still complying with external regulations such as Service Level Agreements (SLAs).
