Scientific Conference on International Information Security - Opening Ceremony and Welcome Speech

Scientific Conference on International Information Security - Opening Ceremony and Welcome Speech

Scientific Conference on International Information Security has started its work in Changsha, China in 25 October and continue till 27 October. Representatives of many countries including Russia, United States, China, United Kingdom, Canada, Israel, etc. have came together to discuss existing Information Security Problems and try to find joint decisions acceptable for all sides.

Representatives of all participating countries show their concern about increasing cyber treats in Internet environment. All participants express understanding that regardless to technological and economical development no country alone can succeed in the war against cyber crime. It’s why International Information Security Research Consortium (IISRC) consortium is trying to convince more countries to join to convention on International Information Security. Actually any organization actively using cyberspace and concern about its security may apply for IISRC Consortium membership. Like so, during conference the application of world leading global online payment company PayPal was reviewed and accepted as a member of IISRC Consortium, moreover, Qafqaz University has officially applied for membership of the consortium.

It’s really facinating scientific event and good opportunity to meet people who have different views to the same problems, but at the same time common aims to make cyberspace more secure and sustainable as well. One of key issues conference stands on is discussion on common terminology for cyberspace security. There are so many ideas and different understandings on each terminology that it’s going to be problematic to come to agreement. At the same time, such discussion gives an opportunuty to escape unacceptable interpretations and get mature decision. Anyway, I think terminology should be kept as general and broad as possible escaping details, otherwise we will have more misundertandings that we have now.
