AINA 2011

In order to achieve a sufficient information security level, ICT risks should be well identified, prioritized and mastered by efficient procedural and technical security measures.

A risk management process has to consider all risk components in order to choose, or to propose, the most appropriate countermeasures. Being concerned by the costs that countermeasures generate, everyone has to perform a cost-benefits analysis in order to spend less resource but obtain appropriate results. In the same time, risk management methodologies exist but are not enough if there cannot be sustained by effective security management approaches and solutions.

This workshop addresses a wide range of issues related to risk and security managerial and technical issues. This workshop wishes to further stimulate the interdisciplinary approach to effective information and network security solutions, for citizen, organizations and states, through rigorous risk analysis and security management approaches.

This workshop will bring together experts from several disciplines, with different backgrounds and experiences of enhancing the implementation of security adoption in an effective way to enhance business performance and people safety.

Both theoretical studies and reports of experiences are welcomed in this workshop.

Topics should include, but are not limited to:

  • Risks analysis and risks management
  • Vulnerabilities, threats an ICT risks
  • Security governance and management issues
  • Security evaluation and optimization
  • Security tools and solutions
  • Security and Trust models
  • Interdisciplinary approach of information and communication security
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
  • Security economics
  • Social, economical and political impacts of information security
  • Ethical issues of ICT security

Session advertising

The session will be advertised by using appropriate mailing lists, newsletters, websites and personal contacts.

Contribution to the field of networking and applications

Networks and applications vulnerabilities are a reality and threats can impact every actor of the information society. So, today in a networked and interconnected world, ICT related risks could not be ignored and should be mastered in an efficient and effective way.

By addressing such issues, this workshop will contribute to raise awareness, to develop and to enforce security by designing applications, distributed systems and computer networks that integrate in native mode, security measures.
