The 17th Annual New York State Cyber Security Conference (NYSCSC ‘14) and 9th Annual Symposium on Information Assurance (ASIA ‘14) is a two day event co-hosted by the New York State Office of Information Technology Services Enterprise Information Security Office, the University at Albany’s School of Business and College of Computing and Information, and The NYS Forum, Inc. The Conference is held in Albany, New York on June 3 and 4 at the Empire State Plaza. The Conference features prominent industry security experts presenting the latest innovations in cyber security and includes peer networking and sessions on leading-edge security topics and issues.
ASIA ’14 complements the NYS Cyber Security Conference, as the Academic Track, with the goal of increasing interaction among security practitioners and researchers to foster the infusion of academic research into practice.
With each successive year, interest and attendance has grown. Last year’s Conference drew more than 1,000 attendees. This year’s Conference theme, "Solving the Security Puzzle", focuses on the many “pieces” (risk management, user awareness training, mobile applications, BYODs, funding, cloud solutions, etc.) involved in providing a secure environment to meet today’s business demands. The Conference’s multi-track format offers a keynote, educational sessions, interactive forums, and an exhibit hall.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on an internet user’s hard drive. It is generated by a web page server, which is basically the computer that operates a web site. The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user’s identification card, which tell a web site when the user has returned.
Where the use of a cookie type device does involve the processing of personal data, service providers will need to make sure they comply with the additional requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the Act). This includes the requirements of the third data protection principle which states that data controllers must not process personal data that is excessive. Where personal data is collected, the data controller should consider the extent to which that data can be effectively processed anonymously. This is likely to be particularly relevant where the data is to be processed for a purpose other than the provision of the service directly requested by the user, for example, counting visitors to a website.
On 26th May 2011, new laws came into force in the UK that affect most web sites. If cookies are used in a site, the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) (Amendment) Regulations 2011 (UK Regulations) provide that certain information must be given to that site's visitors and the user must give his or her consent to the placing of the cookies.
The UK Regulations implemented into UK law the provisions of the amended E-Privacy Directive of 2009. The Directive required that the new laws be implemented into the laws of all EU Member States by 25th May 2011The UK is only one of three member states to meet this deadline.
Wishes of subscribers and users
Regulation 6 states that consent for the cookie type device should be obtained from the subscriber or user but it does not specify whose wishes should take precedence if they are different.
There may well be cases where a subscriber, for example, an employer, provides an employee with a terminal at work along with access to certain services to carry out a particular task, where to effectively complete the task depends on using a cookie type device. In these cases, it would not seem unreasonable for the employer’s wishes to take precedence.
