Theme: Cyber Security by Design

[Update on 14 Jan 2016] Proceedings are available for download here.

Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore

January 14-15, 2016

The inaugural Singapore Cyber Security R&D Conference will be held in Singapore on January 14-15, 2016 at the campus of the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). The conference will bring together academics and practitioners from across the world to participate in a vibrant programme consisting of research papers, industrial best practices, and tools exhibition. Students, undergraduate and graduate, are encouraged to participate in specially organised sessions.  Several cash awards and certificates will be given to the best contributions in various student categories.

This year’s theme focuses on the importance of bringing a technically grounded element of design that integrates cyber security into a system early in the process rather than an afterthought.  The element of design is integral to a process be it a purely software system, such as one engaged in managing online transactions, or a combination of hardware and software such as in Industrial Control Systems, pacemakers, and a multitude of IoT devices. This design element pervades the entire development process from the beginning till the end, and even during operation and maintenance. SG-CRC 2016 will focus on how design as an element can be made explicit early in the development process using novel techniques based on sound mathematical tools and engineering approaches.
