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.
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.

AFRICATEK 2019 conference targets the use of emerging technologies (e.g. cloud computing, IoT, data analytics, green computing, Smart grid etc.) in developing countries. Building innovative solutions and services based on cutting edge technologies is very challenging in developing countries for several reasons. The limited IT infrastructure and Internet penetration are two of the key hindering barriers.
The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to share their results and ideas on how to benefit the developing world from the technologies’ advances despite the existing limitations.
