Data is the fundamental asset either of an organization or of an individual. Owners are forced to store their data in electronic form in devices such as mobile, computer, cloud and etc… But currently all types of offences such as cyber attacks and other cause severe damage to the user’s data. Hence, there is an urgent need of data security professionals to unite and find feasible solutions to these attacks. INCODS’17 provides a suitable platform for interaction among industry and academic experts in the field of data security to discuss the merits and demerits of existing data security methods/techniques, suggest suitable mechanism to defend & arrest these attacks and to kindle interest & curiosity among research community in the field of data security which is the need of the hour. .
Issues around data security, trustworthiness, and privacy today are under greater focus than ever before. Technological advances, such as sensors, smart mobile devices, Internet of things (IoTs), novel systems and applications, such as cloud systems, cyber–physical systems, social networks, and smart and connected health care, are making it possible to capture, process, share, and use huge amounts of data from everywhere and at any time & every time, and to extract knowledge and predict trends from these data. The widespread and intensive use of data for many different tasks makes, however, data security, trustworthiness, and privacy increasingly critical requirements. For example, the availability of multiple datasets, which can be easily combined and analyzed, makes it very easy to infer sensitive information. Such issues may make data sharing more difficult, if at all possible. Pervasive data gathering from multiple devices, such as smart phones, smart power meters, and personal well-being devices, further exacerbates the problem of data security and privacy. The use of cloud as a platform for storing, retrieving, and processing data introduces another party in the already complex data ecosystem. Malicious actors may compromise cloud systems and cloud applications in order to gain access to private data as well as remove or tamper the data, so as to undermine the trust of users towards the data.
The International Conference on Data Security (INCODS), organized by Department of Information Technology, Kalasalingam University will take place during the month of December 2017 at Kalasalingam University Campus, Tamil Nadu, India. This conference will cover areas like, cloud Computing, Big Data Analytics, IoT, Ad hoc and wireless sensors networks, Advances in satellite communication applications and many more.
