Dear All,

Following a great success of running our workshop, Enterprise Security 2014, we are pleased to offer special issues of 2 journals for delegates not even attended the workshop.

International Journal of Organizational and Collective Intelligence (IJOCI), suggested deadline, end of Feb 2015:

Open Journal of Big Data (OJBD) for Enterprise Security in Big Data (ESiBD-2015), suggested deadline or later (with permissions granted):

If your paper will be accepted following our vigorous review process, those who submit early will get waiver from OJBD. Those who submit to IJOCI, will be based on the first-come-first serve basis.
Details about the scope, topics, our motivation and impacts of our research contributions are available at the end of this email.

For those who are interested to visit our social network sites to see our recent events, activities and visions, you can go to:

Many thanks again for your considerations and interests. Happy New Year! Thanks and regards.

Dr. Victor Chang,
Editor-in-Chief, OJBD and IJOCI


Enterprise security is the key to achieving global information security in business and organizations. Cloud computing is a new paradigm for enterprise where businesses need to be secured. However, this new trend needs to be more systematic with respect to cloud security, which is a factor in sustaining cloud technology by building-in trust. For example, current challenges with cyber security and application security flaws are highlighting important lessons to be learned and also lead to the adoption of best practices. Similarly, as the demand for cloud services increases, the importance of security and privacy will also increase.

One solution is to develop a framework for enterprise security to analyze and model organizational security of the cloud and its data. In particular, cloud data and cloud storage technologies (Amazon s3, drop box, Google drive, etc.) have now become normal practice for almost every computing user. This can explain why building trust for cloud users is one of the main focuses of cloud computing research. On the other hand, the social, human and business aspects of enterprise security are essential to users to keep their skills, business concepts and policies up-to-date. By maintaining all these aspects of security, organizations can develop an enterprise security solution to work together with business models, such as cloud provider enterprise model and cloud consumer enterprise model. In this way, enterprise security can address technical and organizational aspects of security to provide added value and win-win situations for users, adopters and service providers.

By blending technical and organizational aspects of security, our workshop can provide a platform for intellectual discussions and interactions. To highlight the significance of enterprise security and disseminate research contributions in cloud community, we welcome papers addressing technical (implementations, algorithms, experiments, simulation, modeling and prototypes) and organizational (information system related issues, recommendation and best practices, frameworks, risks) issues.

Case studies
The focus of this workshop is to present new techniques, demonstrations, innovative approaches and case studies related to Enterprise Security. The impacts of research contributions are as follows.

- Explain how to implement enterprise security and their added values.
- Demonstrate how enterprise security can be used in different case studies.
- Describe how to resolve challenges in each adoption scenario.
- Provide reproducible steps for anyone to follow, and support reproducibility, an important aspect in Cloud Computing science.
- Explain how their Cloud services can work effectively in production and real-time
- Present how their services can make contributions to users involved in the use of Cloud services and adoption. 
- Sum up and disseminate all the lessons learned and recommendation to play an influential role in academia and industry.
