International Workshop on Security and Forensics in Cyber Space (SFCS)
InfoSec Conference Summary
The description was submitted by the Conference Organizer. We sometimes edit it to enhance the listing.
Cyber attacks are continuing to increase at an alarming rate, especially with the ever increasing nature of cyber connectivity. They target a wide variety of protocols and communication systems ranging from servers and end-user machines to wireless and mobile networks and devices. The absence of active cyber defense and strategy, and technically sound forensic methods may prevent administrators from making suitable decisions on time against threats, proving the identity of the guilty party, identifying the root vulnerability to prevent a future occurrence of a similar incident, and understanding the attacker’s motivation for an efficient design of cyber security solutions.
In this context, digital forensic engineering is emerging as a disciplined science in charge of developing novel scientific and theoretical methods, techniques, and approaches to collect, process, and analyze information retrieved from systems affected by security incidents to generate conclusive descriptions.
The fifth edition of the SFCS workshop will bring together researchers, scientists, engineers and practitioners involved in research in the fields of communication systems security and forensics, to present their latest research findings, ideas, and developments. The workshop will act as a forum for discussing open issues, and presenting original and unpublished research results and innovative ideas in the realm of security and digital forensics. We encourage contributions describing innovative work in the realm of cyber security, cyber defense, and digital forensics.
