Announcing 2 Cyber Focused Workshops at the Inaugural CSA Government Cybersecurity Forum in Singapore

Announcing 2 Cyber Focused Workshops at the Inaugural CSA Government Cybersecurity Forum in Singapore
The Cyber Forensic Workshop, the first of the two workshops co-organized by the IEEE Communications Society, will be held on Tuesday, 11 October 2016 at the Suntec Singapore. The workshop will focus on the fundamental principles of cyber forensics, and detail how cyber forensic investigations are conducted including the use of specialized software tools, techniques and processes employed to preserve and recover digital evidence.
On Wednesday, 12 October 2016, the second day-long workshop on Cyber Risk Management commences. The workshop program will cover evolving cyber technology, proven risk-based approaches to cyber security, and managing cybersecurity incidents and effectively safeguard their digital assets.
Registration fee is SGD350 per workshop. Receive a 20% discount when registering for both! For program and registration information, please visit

You are Invited to a Webcast - Coexistence of S-band Radar and Mobile Networks

You are Invited to a Webcast - Coexistence of S-band Radar and Mobile Networks
Join us for a webcast to explore the implementation of LTE technology in the S-band (2-4 GHz) and the challenges of coexistence with radar systems, particularly Air Traffic Control (ATC) radars. A critical look at the vulnerabilities of LTE systems is reviewed and the real modes of typical S-Band radars are examined.
A method of analysis is proposed for the assessment of network performance in the presence of a radar and conversely the radar performance in the presence of a cellular network. Using these analysis methods, real-world and synthetic radar signals are demonstrated against an emulated cellular network environment to show the impact on network performance.
Further, the results of a study on the impact of an ATC radar is shown in the presence of a simulated mobile network environment. Not only are coexistence studies important to assess against common S-band systems such as Air Traffic Control Radars and Navy Air Surveillance Radar, but future spectrum allocation studies for C-band studies and LTE-U technology.
This Webcast examines methods of assessment for studying ongoing issues of mobile network and radar coexistence.
