Cyber Security (CYBERSEC 2015)



Although awareness about necessary security appliances seems to be common and the tools used for that purpose are getting more and more advanced, the number of successful attacks targeted on computer systems is growing. They are mostly related to denial of offered services, gaining access or stealing private data, financial fraud, etc. Moreover, the evolution towards cloud computing, increasing use of social networks, mobile and peer-to-peer networking technologies that are intrinsic part of our life today, carrying many conveniences within our personal life, business and government, gives the possibility to use them as tools for cyber criminals and potential path of malware propagation. Computer systems are prone to cyber attacks even though a number of security controls are already deployed. Cyber criminals are focused on finding a way to bypass security controls and gain access into the protected network. For that reason organizations, companies, governments and institutions as well as ordinary citizens all over the world are interested in detection of all attempts of malicious actions targeted on their computer networks and single machines.

The CyberSec Special Session focuses on the diversity of the systems security developments and deployments in order to highlight the most recent challenges and report the latest research results. The session is intended to attract researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, and provides an international discussion forum for sharing experiences and new ideas concerning emerging aspects of the systems security in different application domains.
