As a new interdisciplinary subject, cyber security has attracted more and more attention from researchers and practitioners in academia and industry all over the world. While new cyber security threats keep emerging, researchers are also developing new technologies to help build securer, safer and more resilient digital systems. Applications of any new cyber security technology is however not simple because of many reasons such as the heterogeneity and large scale of computer systems and networks, the volume/velocity/variety of data in the hyber-connected world, the socio-technical complexity of new threats and attacks, and the intrinsic difficulties of building secure systems involving both computers, things and humans.
Abuse of proprietary information assets accounts for the severe privacy incident worldwide. The personal data gathered and stored by companies is ever more frequently used for profiling and analysis, often without the knowledge or consent of the individuals or groups concerned. Mobile computing with location-aware capabilities further exacerbates these concerns. Furthermore, the fast-paced development of new artificial and augmented intelligence applications challenge existing legal, regulatory, and ethical frameworks. Thus, it is imperative to understand better the laws, policies, strategies, technologies, and actions by societies, organizations, groups, and individuals that address these issues. This track provides a forum for focused discussion on knowledge privacy, legal and ethical issues. We seek to address important questions arising from the issues mentioned above, such as:
