Cybersecurity is the set of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorized access. In a computing context, security includes both cybersecurity and physical security.
After the first successful edition of CSNet 2017 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), the second edition CSNet 2018 in Paris (France), the third edition CSNet 2019 in Quito (Ecuador), CSNet 2020 in Lausanne (Switzerland) (Online), the fifth edition of CSNet conference will be held in Abu Dhabi (United Arabe of Emirates) next October 12-14, 2021.
The driving theme at CSNet 2021 is Cyber Security in Networking. The technological disruption is generating an impact on society and leading to a new industrial revolution. This social and industrial change presents new technological environments constituted by ubiquitous systems and large amounts of information, which requires a change in the way how cybersecurity is applied. The use of big data, machine learning, data science, data mining, strengthens the cognitive skills of security analysts to face new forms of cybersecurity attacks. This new trend, called cognitive security, poses new challenges for researchers and companies to seek proactive security proposals according to this technological change.

The CSNet 2021 conference program will be split into the following tracks:

Track 1: Cyber Security in Vehicular Networks
Track 2: Cyber Security of Virtual infrastructures
Track 3: Blockchain
Track 4: Cyber Security of Critical Infrastructures
Track 5: Network security
Track 6: Usability-Security track
Track 7: Forensic track
Track 8: Cyber Security for the Navy
