The UbiSec 2022 conference was the second event in the series of conferences devoted to security, privacy, and anonymity in cyberspace, physical world, and social networks. The Conference provides a forum for world-class researchers to gather and share their research achievements, emerging ideas and trends in the highly challenging research fields.
Drexel’s CCI contributes to theory and practice along dimensions that include technical, human, organizational, policy and societal considerations. This broad perspective positions the College to address the complex, multi-disciplinary problems that are increasingly common as society becomes more dependent on information technology. CCI offers a number of academic options within the cybersecurity field, such as the BS in Computing & Security Technology, the MS in Computing Security and Privacy, and a Graduate Certificate in Computing Systems Security and Privacy.
The UbiSec 2022 conference was the second event in a series of conferences devoted to security, privacy and anonymity in cyberspace, the physical world and social networks. The Conference covered many dimensions including security algorithms and architectures, privacy-aware policies, regulations and techniques, anonymous computation and communication, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial application systems for cyberspace, the physical world and social networking systems.
