Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust


International Forum of Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust
Warsaw, Poland, 17–20 September, 2023

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.

This Thematic Track builds on previous experiences of International Conference on Cyber Security, Privacy, and Trust (INSERT’19) and 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. This Thematic Track 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. It 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. This Thematic Track intends 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 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


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Biometric technologies
  • Cryptography and cryptanalysis
  • Critical infrastructure protection
  • Security of wireless sensor networks
  • Hardware-oriented information security
  • Organization- related information security
  • Social engineering and human aspects in cyber security
  • Individuals identification and privacy protection methods
  • Pedagogical approaches for information security education
  • Information security and business continuity management
  • Tools supporting security management and development
  • Decision support systems for information security
  • Trust in emerging technologies and applications
  • Digital right management and data protection
  • Threats and countermeasures for cybercrimes
  • Ethical challenges in user privacy and trust
  • Cyber and physical security infrastructures
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Steganography and watermarking
  • Digital forensics and crime science
  • Security knowledge management
  • Security of cyber-physical systems
  • Privacy enhancing technologies
  • Trust and reputation models
  • Misuse and intrusion detection
  • Data hide and watermarking
  • Cloud and big data security
  • Computer network security
  • Assurance methods
  • Security statistics

We will also solicit papers about current implementation efforts, research results, as well as position statements from industry and academia regarding applications of networking technology.
