About the Conference

Following the successful 12th ICGS3, we have much pleasure in announcing the 13th International conference on Global Security, Safety & Sustainability.

2020 will be remembered as a year of COVID-19 pandemic year with profound impact on our lives and challenging times for governments around the world with technology as a backbone of tools to assist us to work remotely while in self isolations and in total lockdown. Every individual and organisation are faced with the challenges of the adoption of technological change and understand that nothing will be the same for some time after and even when normality resumes. AI, blockchain, machine learning, IoT, IoMT, IIoT all are tested and applied at a very rapid turnaround as we go through the pandemic day after day. However, all this transformation can bring many associated risks regarding data, such as privacy, transparency, exploitation and ownership.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020, governments, and organisations; small or large have seen an increase in cyber-attacks. Hackers, through reconnaissance and some network intrusions, targeting nation states medical research facilities, healthcare organizations conducting research into the virus, financial sectors and so on. Early in April 2020, UK, and US security agencies sound COVID-19 threat alert “…Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency issued a joint warning that hacking groups associated with nation-state governments are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic as part of their cyber operations…”.

The advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI), coupled with the prolificacy of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices are creating smart societies that are interconnected. The expansion of Big Data and volumetric meta data generated and collated by these mechanisms not only give greater depth of understanding but as change is coming at an unprecedented pace covid19 is drives the cultural changes and the public sector innovations to a new height of responsibilities.

Further development and analysis of defence tactics and countermeasures are needed fast to understand security vulnerabilities which will be exploited by the cybercriminals by identifying newer technologies that can aid in protecting and securing data with a range of supporting processes to provide a higher level of cyber resilience.

The ethical implications of connecting the physical and digital worlds, and presenting the reality of a truly interconnected society, presents the realisation of the concept of smart societies in reality.

This Annual International Conference is an established platform in which security, safety and sustainability issues can be examined from several global perspectives through dialogue between academics, students, government representatives, chief executives, security professionals, and research scientists from the United Kingdom and from around the globe.

The TWO-days Virtual conference will focus on the challenges of complexity, the rapid pace of change and risk/opportunity issues associated with the 21st century lifestyle, systems and infrastructures.
