Elisa Bertino, Interim Director of Cyber Center, co-founder of new ACM conference
January 7, 2011
ACM SIGSAC announces the creation of a new annual ACM Conference on Data and Applications Security and Privacy. The inaugural conference will be held February 21-23 2011 in Hilton Palacio Del Rio, San Antonio, Texas.
With rapid global penetration of the Internet and smart phones and the resulting productivity and social gains, the world is becoming increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure. Criminals, spies and predators of all kinds have learnt to exploit this landscape much quicker 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, privacy, functionality, cost and usability tradeoffs necessary in any practical system can only be effectively achieved at the data and application layers. This new conference provides a dedicated venue for high-quality research in this arena, and seeks to foster a community with this focus in cyber security.
