Franco-American Workshop on Cybersecurity (co-located with The 1st International Workshop on Autonomics and Cloud Security (ACS) during FAS*-2017), Tucson Arizona, Sep 22, 2017

Location: University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, USA 

Dates: Sep 22, 2017

Description: Cloud computing is used by many organizations to build scalable systems in different domains, such as retail, healthcare, human resources, finance, education, and government. Our society has become more dependent on the services provided by these cloud-based systems. As a result, cyber-attacks on these cloud-based systems can have a dramatic impact on all aspects of our lives. Cloud security is an active area of research, involving many approaches for ensuring the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of data and applications hosted in the cloud. However, existing techniques for securing cloud-based systems, including autonomic-based cloud systems, are based on the assumption that people will be involved in managing them. These techniques require end user input to implement effective cybersecurity strategies to defend the systems.

Franco-American Workshop on Cybersecurity is co-located with The 1st International Workshop on Autonomics and Cloud Security (ACS) during FAS*-2017 in Tucson Arizona, Sep 22, 2017. The focus of the joint workshop is to investigate approaches to cloud security in general, including cloud-based autonomic systems, as well as autonomic cybersecurity approaches for defending cloud-based systems.
