The Workshop

INTRODUCTION

As connected devices permeate our lives, it is crucial that the computer infrastructure we rely on so heavily be secure and reliable. Two distinct trends promise to make information security even more important in the future. First, computers are finding their way into new and exciting applications: from smart building controls, to autonomous robots, to medical devices, computing imparts both agility and unpredictability. Second, nearly every computer is connected in some way to another: from short-range wireless protocols, to increasingly ubiquitous cellular data and high-speed broadband, it is faster than ever to share data or compromise personal privacy. At the heart of whether the benefits that drive these trends will outweigh their inherent risks is whether we can engineer these systems to be secure and reliable. This course will explore the security benefits and risks of these trends, how they can be addressed, and how multidisciplinary problems can bring together researchers from disparate fields to meet the challenges of achieving security in a connected world.

OBJECTIVE OF THE WORKSHOP

The objective of the course is to bring awareness in the student/teaching fraternity, about the importance and means of information security as well as empower them to safeguard the interest of the nation against cyber-crime by bringing together eminent researchers, educators, engineers and practitioners in the field under one roof.
