Financial Cryptography and Data Security is a major international forum for research, advanced development, education, exploration, and debate regarding information assurance, with a specific focus on commercial contexts. The conference covers all aspects of securing transactions and systems. Original works focusing on both fundamental and applied real-world deployments on all aspects surrounding commerce security are solicited. Submissions need not be exclusively concerned with cryptography. Systems security and interdisciplinary works are particularly encouraged.
The goal of the conference is to bring security and cryptography researchers and practitioners together with economists, bankers, implementers and policy-makers. Intimate and colourful by tradition, the FC program features invited talks, academic presentations, technical demonstrations and panel discussions. In addition, several workshops will be held in conjunction with the FC conference.
Africacrypt is an Annual International Conference on the Theory and Applications of Cryptology.
Africacrypt is a major scientific event that seeks to advance and promote the field of cryptology on the African continent. The conference has systematically drawn some excellent contributions to the field, and has seen many renown researchers deliver keynote presentations. The conference has always been organized In cooperation with the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).
OWASP AppSec conferences bring together industry, government, security researchers, and practitioners to discuss the state of the art in application security. This series was launched in the United States in 2004 and Europe in 2005. Global AppSec conferences are held annually in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Additionally, regional events are held in locations such as Brazil, China, India, Ireland, Israel, and Washington D.C. Presentations and videos are generally posted several months after each conference.
The African market has been evolving at a gradual pace and has seen huge economic transformations in the recent years. Kenya has been one of the key drivers in the African economy to bring out drastic initiatives. Information and communications technology and the cyber space platforms have become he core pillars and key enablers of Kenya’s Vision 2030 considering its emphasis on transforming Kenya into an industrialized and secure country by laying its foundation on science, technology, and innovation. However, cyber security breaches and attacks are incumbent commonplace threats to organizations and individuals across the globe and are becoming impediments to Kenya’s transformation. It is of paramount importance to urgently and consistently drive national and regional cyber security dialog, and enhance our efforts to secure critical infrastructures and sensitive data. The success of cyber security heavily depends on multiple tangible and intangible factors such as the development of standards, policies and legal frameworks; assessments of risks, governance and compliance; law enforcement and legal interception; sharing and disseminating critical information and alerts; and most importantly create further education and regular awareness amongst the key stakeholders. In order to address the issues of cyber security, and to provide strategic thrusts to protect the critical infrastructure and sensitive information, Naseba, in partnership with the African Cyberspace Network, will organize the Pan-African Cyber Defense Summit (ACDS) in Nairobi, Kenya.
As we see the continued escalation of the global migration crisis, with mass movements of people fleeing the war zones of the Middle East as well as illegal economic immigration from Africa and elsewhere, international terrorism shows every sign of increasing, posing real threats to the free movement of people.
The world is expected to see a continuation of the migration challenges for the border management and security community, as little sign of peace and security in the Middle East is apparent and porous borders in Africa continue to provide challenges.
International organised criminal gangs and human and drug trafficking groups exploit opportunities and increasingly use the internet and technology to enhance their activities.
Controlling and managing international borders in the 21st Century continues to challenge the border control and immigration agencies around the world. It is generally agreed that in a globalised world borders should be as open as possible, but threats continue to remain in ever evolving circumstances and situations.
Advancements in technology are assisting in the battle to maintain safe and secure international travel. The border security professional still remains the front line against these threats.
The World Border Security Congress is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.
