The First International Symposium on Future Cyber Security Technologies (FCST 2018)

in conjunction with

The Fifth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems, Management and Security (IoTSMS 2018)

Valencia, Spain. October 15-18, 2018


Hardware systems and Software applications continue to evolve with more functionalities, complex structures and interactions between them and with users. Cyber Security risks continue to evolve as well in both quantity in the same domains as well new types and ways on how to break into computing systems, software applications, websites, databases, programmable networks etc. For example, monitoring the car manufacturing industry, we can see that recent car models have more complex hardware components and automated programmable features in comparison with their earlier models, this will increase the risk associated with protecting such systems. Same thing can be applicable to most other engineering products. Such complex hardware and programmable techniques bring security opportunities to change the way cyber security controls (e.g. firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), etc.) are developed and enforced. They also bring security challenges related to our computing systems and software architectures or any changes that can be directly or indirectly related to them due to the complex interactions between them. The 1st International Symposium on Future Cyber Security Technologies (FCST 2018) will focus on issues related to future cyber security challenges as well as opportunities which mainly highlight the above mentioned aspects. The 1st IEEE International Symposium on Future Cyber Security Technologies (FCST 2018) will be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, developments, and applications in the areas of cyber security techniques, security challenges and opportunities for emerging technologies such as cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing, big data, 5G, SDN and many others. We are mainly interested in receiving state of the art work on different aspect of future cyber security management system, security and privacy, cloud computing and big data supported security systems to mention but few.
