Visible to the public  Workshop on Innovative CyberSecurity and Privacy for Internet of Things (WICSPIT 2018) Conflict Detection Enabled

This workshop aims to showcase new and emerging strategies and technologies for forecasting, mitigating, countering, and attributing cyber-events that threaten security and privacy within the realm of IoT. Additionally, we invite arguments for innovative and off-the-wall solutions that have sound academic backing. The institutional benefits of IoT adoption are clear, however security and privacy concerns are constantly coming to light. As organizations--both public and private, large and small--adopt new IoT technologies, we hope that this forum can serve as an opening conversation between government, industry, and academia for the purpose of addressing those concerns.
