Call For Papers

SECURE, held on 25th and 26th of October in Warsaw, Poland, is a conference dedicated entirely to IT security and addressed to administrators, security team members and practitioners in this field. SECURE’s unique feature is the organisers’ commitment to providing participants with reliable information about everything that is current and meaningful in IT security. A high professional level of the talks is ensured by CERT Polska during the paper selection process. Particular emphasis is on practical solutions, analysis of the current threats, latest trends in countering threats as well as important legal issues. Participants have an opportunity to gain the latest knowledge, improve their qualifications and exchange experience with experts.

Network attacks are having more and more serious consequences. Targeted elaborate phishing schemes are appearing on a larger scale, leading to losses of amounts measured in millions of euros. Ransomware has exploded, hitting virtually everyone, including new victims such as health care institutions or law firms. We have also witnessed further attacks on industrial systems, such as those targetting the energy/power sector in the Ukraine. The Internet of Things is final arriving, full of “smart” but insecure devices. The attack surface is thus increasing. The challenge in combating serious attacks involves among other things, attribution – the need to reliably assign actors to concrete actions. However, many of the mechanisms for providing accountability on the Internet encounter resistance due to the need to protect the privacy of users. Will these interests always remain in conflict?

If you want to share your experience in these topics, or if you are an expert in one of the areas below, this Call for Speakers is for you.

SECURE 2016 will be held on October 25-26, at the Airport Hotel Okęcie in Warsaw, Poland. The conference topics will be roughly grouped in the following tracks:

technical – practical aspects of implementation and integration of security solutions
