International Forum of Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust (NEMESIS'20)

Sofia, Bulgaria, 6 - 9 September, 2020

Committee

Nowadays, information security works as a backbone for protecting both user data and electronic transactions. Protecting communications and data infrastructures of an increasingly inter-connected world have become vital nowadays. Security has emerged as an important scientific discipline whose many multifaceted complexities deserve the attention and synergy of computer science, engineering, and information systems communities. Information security has some well-founded technical research directions which encompass access level (user authentication and authorization), protocol security, software security, and data cryptography. Moreover, some other emerging topics related to organizational security aspects have appeared beyond the long-standing research directions.

The International Forum of Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust (NEMESIS’20) as a successor of International Conference on Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust (INSERT’19) focuses on the diversity of the cyber information security developments and deployments in order to highlight the most recent challenges and report the most recent researches. The session is an umbrella for all cyber security technical aspects, user privacy techniques, and trust. In addition, it goes beyond the technicalities and covers some emerging topics like social and organizational security research directions. NEMESIS’20 serves as a forum of presentation of theoretical, applied research papers, case studies, implementation experiences as well as work-in-progress results in cyber security. NEMESIS’20 is intended to attract researchers and practitioners from academia and industry and provides an international discussion forum in order to share their experiences and their ideas concerning emerging aspects in information security met in different application domains. This opens doors for highlighting unknown research directions and tackling modern research challenges. The objectives of the NEMESIS’20 can be summarized as follows:

  • To review and conclude research findings in cyber security and other security domains, focused on the protection of different kinds of assets and processes, and to identify approaches that may be useful in the application domains of information security.
  • To find synergy between different approaches, allowing elaborating integrated security solutions, e.g. integrate different risk-based management systems.
  • To exchange security-related knowledge and experience between experts to improve existing methods and tools and adopt them to new application areas
