Cyberspace Security

With the advancement of "Internet plus" on all fronts, many traditional industries gradually step into a great era of digitization, cyberization, mobilization and intellectualization. However, the explosive growth of data and information in those processes brings serious challenges to cyberspace security. Meanwhile, the emergence of innovative network computing paradigms, such as cloud computing, IoT (Internet of Things), big data, mobile and wireless networks, lead to a lot of information security issues, which are neglected, unknown, or unable to handle for existing security solutions. Cyberspace has become the fifth national sovereign space besides the traditional four domains of land, sea, air, and aerospace. Cyberspace has become a new battlefield of security among nations.

IWCSS 2019 topics include, but are not limited to the following:

Cyberspace Trust
Cyberspace Security
Cyberspace Privacy
Cyberspace Safety
Cyberspace Anonymity
Cyberspace Fault Tolerance
Cyberspace Reliability
Cyberspace Dependability
Cyberspace Availability
