SCOPE

The increasing amount and complexity of cybersecurity attacks in recent years have made cyber threats emerge as an important issue in companies and with the implementation of data mining and machine learning techniques it has become an important topic and factor in discovering features of such attacks and detecting future security threats.

This special session aims to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia and industry to obtain an insight into the current state of the practice of data mining and machine learning applications and to discuss the challenges, approaches and the importance of cyber threats predictions and how using emerging technologies such as machine learning could improve the prevention of such attacks.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in Cyber threats prediction 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in digital security and social networks 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in detection and prevention of identity theft 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in the identification of malware 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in detection and prevention of phishing threats 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in information security
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in cyber-attack detection and prevention 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in Web server attacks 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in fraud detection 
  • Applications of data mining and machine learning in email spam and malware filtering
