About the Conference:

Following the successful, 10th ICGS3, we have much pleasure in announcing the 11th International conference on Global Security, Safety and Sustainability. In an era of unprecedented volatile, political and economic environment across the world, computer based systems face ever more increasing challenges, disputes and responsibilities and while the Internet has created a global platform for the exchange of ideas, goods and services, however, it has also created boundless opportunities for cyber-crime.

Therefore, the role of Information systems in facilitating secure economic transactions and maintaining steady and reliable sources of information that support politically stable and sustainable socio-economic systems is becoming increasingly critical.

As increasing number of large organizations and individuals use the Internet and its satellite mobile technologies, they are increasingly vulnerable to cyber-crime threats. It is therefore paramount that the security industry raises its game to combat these threats. This is an issue of global importance as law enforcement agencies all over the world are struggling to cope.

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 three day conference will focus on the challenges of complexity, rapid pace of change and risk/opportunity issues associated with the 21st century living style, systems and infrastructures.
