*Title: Recent Trends in Cyber Security

In this lecture series we will present empirical research methods in applied
information security and include some fundamental information for audience
that has a focus other than technical information security. We will cover
four main topics: (1) Cloud Security and Mobile Application Security, (2)
Social Engineering, (3) Privacy, and (4) Malware Analysis, Software
Obfuscation and the Ethics of Large Scale Malware Evaluation. First, during
the past few years, a vast number of cloud services have been developed.
Cloud services are offered at different levels such as infrastructure or
application. We start by looking at the infrastructure (cloud services and
mobile applications that rely on cloud services). Second, social engineering
has become an emerging threat in virtual communities and is an effective
means to attack information systems. Today’s knowledge workers make use of
a number of services (presented in the first lecture unit) that leverage
sophisticated social engineering attacks. Third, the increasing integration
of all services creates more electronic traces that everybody leaves in
various systems and privacy becomes more important. We will look at how Web
browsers leak information about a user’s identity. So far the User Agent
string is often used to identify a given browser, which is a self-reported
string provided by the client. It is, however, not a security feature, and
can be changed arbitrarily. Forth and finally we look at applied malware
research and research ethics.
