Dr. Bertino General Chair of upcoming ACM CODASPY 2013 Conference
January 7, 2013
ACM SIGSAC announces the continuation of its recently launched annual ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security. The third conference will be held February 18-20, 2013 in Hyatt Regency, San Antonio, Texas.
With rapid global penetration of the Internet and smart phones and the resulting productivity and social gains, the world is becoming increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure. Criminals, spies and predators of all kinds have learnt to exploit this landscape much quicker than defenders have advanced in their technologies. Security and Privacy has become an essential concern of applications and systems throughout their lifecycle. Security concerns have rapidly moved up the software stack as the Internet and web have matured. The security, privacy, functionality, cost and usability tradeoffs necessary in any practical system can only be effectively achieved at the data and application layers. This new conference provides a dedicated venue for high-quality research in this arena, and seeks to foster a community with this focus in cyber security.
