ACM SIGSAC announces the continuation of its annual ACM Conference on Data and Application Security and Privacy. The ninth conference will be held on March 25-27, 2019 in Dallas, Texas, USA.
On its 8th gathering, the CODASPY community finally reached a consensus on the pronunciation of the conference acronym. It's officially called /ˌkəʊdəˈspaɪ/ or [koh-də-spy].
With rapid global penetration of the Internet and smart phones and the resulting productivity and social gains, the world is becoming increasingly dependent on its cyber infrastructure. Criminals, spies and predators of all kinds have learned to exploit this landscape much quicker than defenders have advanced in their technologies. Security and Privacy has become an essential concern of applications and systems throughout their lifecycle. Security concerns have rapidly moved up the software stack as the Internet and web have matured. The security, privacy, functionality, cost and usability tradeoffs necessary in any practical system can only be effectively achieved at the data and application layers. This conference provides a dedicated venue for high-quality research in this arena, and seeks to foster a community with this focus in cyber security.
