Monday, 25 July 2011


Internet banking security in Australia and the role of peer-to-peer networks in hiding terrorist cells are just two of the topics to be discussed by international cyber security experts at the International Cyber Resilience Conference, held in Perth next month.

The conference will be hosted by Edith Cowan University (ECU)’s secau – Security Research Centre at The Duxton Hotel from 1-2 August 2011.

Panida Subsorn from Suan Dusit Rajabhat University, Thailand and Sunsern Limwiriyakul from ECU will present a joint paper entitled, A Comparative Analysis of the Security of Internet Banking in Australia: A Customer Perspective.

A major part our everyday lives, internet banking has major benefits, but also major security flaws. This paper highlights those flaws, and puts forward recommendations to improve internet banking security in the future.  

Academics from the Queensland University of Technology will look at the security concerns surrounding smart grid technologies, with their presentation entitled, Gap Analysis of Intrusion Detection in Smart Grids.
