Track chair Mireille Makary (International University of Beirut), Imad El Zein (International University of Beirut)
The privacy issue has become so much more evident in the computer age. Computer privacy has become a huge concern as we are increasingly using high tech devices and sharing public computers or Internet access points for personal and business purposes. Computer privacy is involved with operating system security, data encryption, access control mechanisms, database protection, network security, and other aspects of protection in computer systems.
Industry experts, leading researchers, technical speakers, and Ph.D. students will be encouraged to stressing topics related to types of computer security risks, identify methods to safeguard against external attacks, techniques to prevent unauthorized computer access and use, issues surrounding information privacy, and implications of cutting-edge technology.
