16th Annual Security Conference

Our emphasis has become more holistic, and we tend to consider both the organizational and technical aspects of information protection to be equally important. The 16th Annual Security Conference provides a forum for discourses in Security, Assurance and Privacy that enhance the understanding of current events, but also nurture future dialogues related to cybersecurity.
