Workshop on Information Security: Research Issues and Challenges

From the Head

Throughout my career in the field of Computer Science, I have seen many changes in the trends of Computer Science, from Desktops to Laptops, Mobile phones to Smartphones, GUI operating systems to open source operating systems.
The only aspect of computer science which never goes out of the picture is that of Security. Every program, hardware, software, network or device which is developed over the centuries necessarily had some sort of security mechanism associated with it. IT Security is an aspect of Computer Science which will never become obsolete. New technologies and newer exploits mushroom by the second and there is an immediate need to train young technocrats in the science of IT Security.
I extend my heartiest regards and welcome you all to this one of its kind workshop on Ethical Hacking and Information Security.

From the Convener

IT security is an aspect of Computer Science which transcends the boundary of all scholarly disciplines. Any individual irrespective of their field, education, area of work needs IT Security. The same is true for different companies/firms working in the different industries. Cyber Crime can come knocking at your gates at the first chance it gets. You choose to ignore it or fight it head on, it’s your choice altogether.
I hence invite you all to participate in the workshop on IT Security, Ethical Hacking and Cyber – Crime forensics for the period of five (5) days. I assure you that it will be well worth of your time.
