Information and communication technology is more and more becoming an integral and in most cases even a vital part of life. The worldwide economy, public administration, health care, education and even personal life depend on working IT. Constriction of the availability of its service, loss of confidentiality or alteration of data processed, or loss of integrity of the IT infrastructure usually lead to serious or disastrous consequences. Hence security plays an increasingly important role for operators and users of IT systems and infrastructures.
The establishment of static security measures like policies, standards, and guidelines slowly but steadily is getting more common amongst IT operators. Nevertheless in the vast majority of cases operators do not have the capability to detect and respond to security incidents or do a forensic analysis of its traces that can be used in a lawsuit. Jurisdiction in most countries is starting to change and applies regulations on legal duty to maintain safety on operators of IT. Hence incident response capabilities become indispensable to avoid successful assertion of claims for damages caused by compromised or misused systems.
IMF's intent is to gather experts from throughout the world in order to present and discuss recent technical and methodical advances in the fields of IT security incident response and management and IT forensics. The conference provides a platform for collaboration and exchange of ideas between industry, academia, law-enforcement and other government bodies.
The scope of IMF 2009 is broad and includes, but is not limited to the following areas:
IT Incident Response
IMF invites to submit full papers of up to 20 pages, presenting novel and mature research results as well as practice papers of up to 20 pages, describing best practices, case studies or lessons learned. Proposal for workshops, discussion and presentation on practical methods and challenges are also welcome.
All submissions must be written in English (see below), and either in postscript or PDF format. Authors of accepted papers must ensure that their papers will be presented at the conference.
Submitted full papers must not substantially overlap papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee and papers accepted to be presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings.
Details on the electronic submission procedure as well as detailed registration information and formatting instructions are provided on the conference web site (http://www.imf-conference.org).
