7th ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security and Privacy
With the fast global penetration of the smart phones and the Internet and the resulting productivity and social gains, the world is becoming increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure. Criminals, predators and spies of all kinds have learned to exploit this landscape much faster 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, functionality, privacy cost and usability tradeoffs necessary in any practical system can only be effectively achieved at the data and application layers. This new event will provide a dedicated venue for high-quality research in this arena, and seeks to foster a group with this focus in cyber security.
