The rapid cyber revolution of the last few years has profoundly changed the world we live in. Over time, the world around us – from our close physical environment to the critical infrastructures providing the foundation for life in our cities and states – has grown increasingly dependent on information and communication systems for its everyday activity. Along with the opportunities this dependence offers, owing to cyberspace being a growth and innovation engine, it also gives rise to sophisticated enemies and threats that are more complex than ever before, which are being perfected and refined methodically.
In the face of these enemies and threats, individuals, organizations and states are required to produce innovative, unique solutions that would improve the resistance and resilience of the sensitive systems they rely on every day. For this purpose, it is essential to maintain a direct, on-going contact with the latest developments and changes in the cyber defence market. The Indian Cyber Industry and the local ecosystem where it operates constitute a pioneering, innovation-driving force and an attractive objective for the realization of this goal. A Common Platform to facilitate the experts to provide an effective solution for the complex and alarming problems in the society towards Cyber Security domain. We are developing innovative strategies and compliance procedures to curb the increasing complexity of the Global Cyber Threats.
To this end, we are planning to organize InCyCon - Indian Cyber Conference - 2015, the International Conference for Cyber Security Solutions, taking place on August 7th & 8th, 2015 in B. S. Abdur Rahman University, Chennai, India.
The mission of the Conference is to establish a multi-stakeholder consortium that brings together Industry, Government, and Academic interests in an effort to improve the state of Cyber Security on both a domestic and international level.
