IEEE 2020 International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS)

IEEE ICCWS 2020 (IEEE Conference ID # 48432)

31st March – 2nd April, 2020, Islamabad, Pakistan


Cyber Security is a rapidly growing global challenge with new sophisticated zero-day attacks costing economies billion of dollars annually. Cyber attacks may particularly affect the developed world, but developing countries are also at higher risk due to the lack of expertise and shortage of security professionals with adequate skills and experience to effectively combat the rising threats. Keeping this perspective, National Centre for Cyber Security (NCCS)  Pakistan is organizing its first annual conference titled: “IEEE International Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS-2020)” to be held from 31st March to 2nd April, 2020. ICCWS-2020 solicits research papers in various fields of cyber security and is technically sponsored by IEEE.
