This event, organized by Northumbria University Newcastle, is a two-day security virtual event that covers a ton of fascinating ground. Expect to learn a lot and be amazed and this event has the benefit of looking back over the torrid year that 2020 was. Highly recommended and we wish the team at Northumbria University the best of luck with their virtual event.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Friday, July 10th 2020, or created by us.
2020 will be remembered as a year of COVID-19 pandemic year with a profound impact on our lives and challenging times for governments around the world with technology as a backbone of tools to assist us to work remotely while in self isolations and in total lockdown. Every individual and organization are faced with the challenges of the adoption of technological change and understand that nothing will be the same for some time after and even when normality resumes. AI, blockchain, machine learning, IoT, IoMT, IIoT all are tested and applied at a very rapid turnaround as we go through the pandemic day after day. However, all this transformation can bring many associated risks regarding data, such as privacy, transparency, exploitation, and ownership.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020, governments, and organizations; small or large have seen an increase in cyber-attacks. Hackers, through reconnaissance and some network intrusions, targeting nation-states medical research facilities, healthcare organizations conducting research into the virus, financial sectors, and so on. Early in April 2020, the UK, and US security agencies sound COVID-19 threat alert “…Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency issued a joint warning that hacking groups associated with nation-state governments are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic as part of their cyber operations…”
The advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI), coupled with the prolificacy of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices are creating smart societies that are interconnected. The expansion of Big Data and volumetric metadata generated and collated by these mechanisms not only give greater depth of understanding but as change is coming at an unprecedented pace covid19 is drives the cultural changes and the public sector innovations to a new height of responsibilities.
Further development and analysis of defense tactics and countermeasures are needed fast to understand security vulnerabilities which will be exploited by cybercriminals by identifying newer technologies that can aid in protecting and securing data with a range of supporting processes to provide a higher level of cyber resilience.
The ethical implications of connecting the physical and digital worlds, and presenting the reality of a truly interconnected society, presents the realization of the concept of smart societies in reality.
This Annual International Conference is an established platform in which security, safety, and sustainability issues can be examined from several global perspectives through dialogue between academics, students, government representatives, chief executives, security professionals, and research scientists from the United Kingdom and from around the globe.
The TWO-day Virtual conference will focus on the challenges of complexity, the rapid pace of change, and risk/opportunity issues associated with the 21st-century lifestyle, systems, and infrastructures.
