I’d wager that this event has become increasingly popular since the subject matter has a direct correlation to COVID. What I mean by that is that we are undoubtedly seeing a rise in Cybercrime as a result of the pandemic so an event like this, organized by the IEEE, is highly topical. For all those working in this InfoSec niche, this event is highly recommended.
Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, November 3rd 2020, or created by us.
Current communication networks are increasingly becoming pervasive, complex, and ever-evolving due to factors like enormous growth in the number of network users, continuous appearance of network applications, increasing amount of data transferred, and diversity of user behaviors.
Understanding and measuring traffic in such networks is a difficult yet vital task for network management but recently also for cybersecurity purposes.
Network traffic measuring and monitoring can, for example, enable the analysis of the spreading of malicious software and its capabilities or can help to understand the nature of various network threats including those that exploit users’ behavior and other user’s sensitive information. On the other hand network traffic investigation can also help to assess the effectiveness of the existing countermeasures or contribute to building new, better ones. Recently, traffic measurements have been utilized in the area of economics of cybersecurity e.g. to assess ISP “badness” or to estimate the revenue of cyber criminals.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together the research accomplishments provided by researchers from academia and the industry. The other goal is to show the latest research results in the field of cybersecurity and understand how traffic measurements can influence it. We encourage prospective authors to submit related distinguished research papers on the subject of both: theoretical approaches and practical case reviews. This workshop presents some of the most relevant ongoing research in cybersecurity seen from the traffic measurements perspective.
The workshop will be accessible to both non-experts interested in learning about this area and experts interested in hearing about new research and approaches.
