*1^st International Workshop on Enabling Cyber Security for Small Medium 
Enterprises ecosystems (SEC4SME2019)*
Paper Submission deadline:   15 June 2019

September 11-13 2019 
Limassol, Cyprus


Cybersecurity incidents cause major economic damage to European 
businesses and the economy at large. Such incidents undermine the trust 
of citizens and enterprises in the digital society.  From a small 
business perspective, damages paid due to customer data being 
compromised, along with the corresponding impact on the firm reputation, 
can be a significant cause of economic loss for businesses after a cyber 
incident. Moreover, Sixty Percent of SMEs that fell victims of 
cyber-attacks did not recover and, consequently, were shut down within 6 
months. Some estimates put the cost of cyber-crime to the global economy 
at more than $445bn and more than 150,000 jobs, but the true cost is far 
greater as many countries do not report on this.

SEC4SME <https://www.pasiphae.eu/sec4sme2019/>workshop aims to 
complement IEEE CAMAD 2019 by focusing on the Challenges identified for 
SME security and collecting contributions from both Industry and 
academia. The main idea is to present the specific objective needed for 
achieving high Security in SME environment

 -    Cybersecurity for small and medium-sized enterprises
      Social Engineering, Attack Patterns, Secure Software Defined Networking, 
      IDS/IPS Logging and auditing mechanisms
 -    Secure and Trusted Paradigm for Interoperable eHealth Services
