On behalf of the National Defense University, we welcome you to Washington, DC and the 2018 International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS). ICCWS will uniquely address cyber security, cyber warfare and information warfare. The National Defense University develops joint warfighters and other national security leaders through rigorous academics, research and engagement to serve the common defense. We hope to have both old and new colleagues join us here on March 8 – 9, 2018.
For the past 13 years ICCWS has developed into an important conference in the cyber-security field, attracting academics, military professionals and practitioners from around the world to present their research findings in the form of empirical studies, case histories and other theoretical and practical contributions. In addition doctoral degree candidates find this conference a valuable opportunity to network with others and have the opportunity to present papers and posters.
ICCWS 2018 is an opportunity for academics, military personnel, practitioners and consultants from around the world who are involved in the study, management, development and implementation of systems and concepts to combat information warfare or to improve information systems security to come together and exchange ideas. There are several strong strands of research developing in the cyber warfare and cyber security area including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation. New threats brought about by social networking and cloud computing are gaining interest from the research community and the conference is tackling these issues. This conference is continuing to establish itself as a key event for individuals working in the field from around the world.
