ECCWS Call for Papers

The increase in Web services and online operations for various industries and critical businesses has led to an increase in different threats and malicious activities. The security community have witnessed a significant increase in security threats, violations and spread of different types of malware. Therefore, critical industries must keep their operational environment secure and resilient against constantly evolving cyber threats. This is to maintain the safety of workers, industrial assets as well as the communities they serve. Recent advances in the fields of cyber security and technology development are a key factor in the growth of security services and operations. There are several strong strands of research and interest that are developing in the area including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation.

All Papers accepted for ECCWS after the double-blind peer review process will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to author registration and payment.  The Proceedings is a published book with an ISBN and ISSN.
