We present five emerging areas in information security that are poised to bring the radical benefits to the information security practice and research. We have selected these five areas based on extensive literature review and emerging trends in information technology and security. This is a theoretical discourse, which considers a number of research issues and paradigms and explores the relevance of some interesting research areas that have far-reaching implications for IS research. The chapter aims to stimulate discussions about the five covered research areas and in doing so responds to the call for information security researchers to be more aware of the research methodological options available to them. For each area, we have provided background and existing research along side rationale on why this area is becoming important and vital in the field of information security research. The chapter introduces five key areas of information security research that are gaining recognition and credibility to significantly aid information security practice.
