With the constant rise of products and services available through the web, the fact that these operate with sensible user information and data, harmful entities, and subjects are increasingly active in the virtual world. With improving defensive methods, cybercriminals recur to extremely sophisticated methods to perform their malicious activities. While protecting users’ privacy, many technologies found in current malware and network attacks have been abused to allow criminals to carry out their undertakings unobserved. This poses many new challenges for digital forensics analysts, academics, law enforcement agencies (LEAs), and security professionals.

The aim of the Cyberknife – Workshop on Cybersecurity, and Data Privacy is to bring together researchers, practitioners, tech companies, law enforcement agencies/representatives, and security professionals in the area of information security forensics and data privacy. This workshop aims to present a complete picture of novel research regarding information security, data leakage protection, and prevention challenges and how criminals undertake their actions.
