The aim of this program is to promote research aspects in internet security, familiarize with tools available for network scanning (anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-spyware scans), identify and synthesize needs for internet security techniques (firewall, honeypots etc.), share information and practical awareness for data and system protection from cyber-attacks (prevent, detect and respond) etc. The FDP will start with an overview of cybersecurity, information security and cryptography aspects to help the audience understand importance of these aspects in real life scenarios. This FDP is planned into two parts: technical session and hands-on session. The technical session part of the FDP will focus on the most challenging contemporary issues in cybersecurity (cyber threat, cyber incidents, cyber threat sharing, cyber technology evolution etc.), data science (collection, analysis and visualisation) and cryptography. The hands-on session part will extend the discussion to address the practical evaluation of security tools and techniques, machine learning for data analysis and data forensics, and implementation of cryptography primitives and protocols. After each session, a small group breakout session will be conducted where key topics from the current session are addressed with participants helping identify recent trends and research gaps. At the end of FDP, summary of key findings and takeaways will be presented.
