The Energypact Foundation was established in 2007 in Switzerland as a non-profit and non-political organisation, and is now based in Vienna, Austria. Its mission is to promote the balanced use of energy sources with the objective of reconciling innovation, economic development and the protection of the environment. In order to better respond to threats to energy infrastructures, during the last two years, the Energypact Foundation has increasingly focused on cyber security for the energy sector. This focus is reflected in the foundation’s vision:
An international collaborative community of technologically and risk informed leadership, researchers, implementers, and stakeholders for the development, sustainability, and security of energy production, transmission, and delivery to address today’s challenges and tomorrow’s needs.
AFCEA ?? TOKYO is a technology focused non-profit organization dedicated to serving the local Japanese and US military, government, industry, and academia in and around Tokyo as a venue for educating and advancing professional knowledge on a variety of topics, to include information technology, cyber security, intelligence, telecommunications and more. AFCEA ?? TOKYO is strongly focused on STEM education – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – and giving back to the local community in the form of STEM grants and scholarships for junior and senior high school students.
FIRST Technical Colloquia & Symposia provide a discussion forum for FIRST members and invited guests to share information about vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and all other issues that affect the operation of incident response and security teams. This is the fourth time to have TC in Japan, and the topic of this time is “IoT”.
For you that are new in FIRST or never have attended a TC, the colloquium typically provides one whole day of plenary sessions for informal discussions and presentations on topics of FIRST membership interest, or that are more sensitive in nature and related to the day-to-day work of participants.
The FIRST colloquia are typically hosted by members and since 2005 are being organized in a regional basis — the current regions being Latin-America, North-America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. For each region the goal is to organize one TC per year — either standing on its own, or jointly with regional CSIRT initiatives.
The Osaka TC intends to have presentation track and hands-on class(es). In addition, 2nd Summit Days (Global Vulnerability Reporting Summit) after 5 years at TC in Kyoto 2012 will be held for sharing vulnerability information on a global basis.
Information security and privacy continue to grow in importance, as threats proliferate, privacy erodes, and attackers find new sources of value. Yet the security of information systems and the privacy offered by them depends on more than just technology. Each requires an understanding of the incentives and trade-offs inherent to the behavior of people and organizations. As society’s dependence on information technology has deepened, policy-makers have taken notice. Now more than ever, careful research is needed to characterize accurately threats and countermeasures, in both the public and private sectors.
The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security and privacy, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy, and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders of information systems, identified market failures surrounding Internet security, quantified risks of personal data disclosure, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. The 2018 workshop will build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools not only to understand threats, but also to strengthen security and privacy through novel evaluations of available solutions.
The ICCRCPS 2018: 20th International Conference on Cybersecurity and Resilience of Cyber Physical Systems aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Cybersecurity and Resilience of Cyber Physical Systems. It also provides a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of Cybersecurity and Resilience of Cyber Physical Systems.
CPX 360 – the industry’s premier cyber security summit and expo – brings together the world’s leading cyber security experts to one venue.

Big data and smart computing are emerging research fields that have recently drawn much attention from computer science and information technology as well as from social sciences and other disciplines.
The goal of the International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp), initiated by KIISE (Korean Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers), is to provide an international forum for exchanging ideas and information on current studies, challenges, research results, system developments, and practical experiences in these emerging fields.
Following the successes of the previous BigComp conferences in Bangkok, Thailand (2014), Jeju, Korea (2015), Hong Kong, China (2016), Jeju, Korea (2017), and Shanghai, China (2018), the 2019 International Conference on Big Data and Smart Computing (BigComp 2019) will be held in Kyoto University, Kyoto, Japan.
The conference is co-sponsored by IEEE and KIISE. BigComp 2019 invites authors to submit original research papers and original work-in-progress reports on big data and smart computing.
Devopsdays is a worldwide series of technical conferences covering topics of software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection between them. Each event is run by volunteers from the local area.
Most devopsdays events feature a combination of curated talks (see open calls for proposals ) and self organized open space content. Topics often include automation, testing, security, and organizational culture.
