(2) General description

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. The evolution towards cloud computing, increasing use of social networks, Internet of Things, 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, create many challenges and potential path of malware propagation. The optimal balance between usability and security of the infrastructure is difficult to be defined. Computer systems are usually prone to cyber attacks even though a number of security controls are already deployed. It is getting increasingly difficult to protect the infrastructure and assess its security on the basis of e.g. security audit. Risks derive not only from the technical domain, but very often human factor plays a critical role. The attacker can act from the perimeter of the network but very often finds the weakest element in the infrastructure and uses it to get access to the network. The Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and targeted attacks make every infrastructure potentially vulnerable. What is more the metadata related to the data exchange itself and the behaviour of the users registered by the sensors usually becomes big in terms of volume, velocity and variety. To analyse big data researchers use machine learning algorithms, however it is envisioned that the attackers will also use these mechanisms to overcome security controls and more successfully hide in the user traffic. It is therefore important to verify the efficiency of the security controls during cyber exercises that address both technical and human factor in the face of controlled, but real, targeted attack campaign towards a model infrastructure.
The CyberSec Workshop 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. It 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.
Conference as well as the Workshop are sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC).
