Title of Workshop: 5th International Workshop on Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems (FISP-2021)

Aim and Scope

Availability, integrity and secrecy of complex information systems are increasingly important requirements for modern society as well as nations as with every passing day computers control and administer more and more aspects of human life. We entrust much of our lives to information and computer technologies (ICT’s). However, it is difficult and challenging task to understand security risk and to provide effective security solution as attackers only need to find a single vulnerability but developers or system administrators need to find and fix all vulnerabilities. In addition, cyber space is considered as fifth battle-field after land, air, water and space.

The aim of FISP 2021 is to provide a premier international platform for wide range of professions including scholars, researchers, academicians and Industry people to discuss and present the most recent challenges and developments in “Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems” from the perspective of providing security awareness and its best practices for the real world. The fifth International Workshop on Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems (FISP-2021) will continue to open to submit novel and high quality research contributions as well as state of the art reviews in the field of information security and privacy. We anticipate that this workshop will open new entrance for further research and technology improvements in this important area.
