Security Threats for eLearning Systems

Motivation

Online environment provides solutions for the information society, but also it introduces many risks associated with data security and privacy. The existence of many computer vulnerabilities that can be exploited by cybercriminals, make cybersecurity a major concern. A service-based criminal industry develops tools and methods to attack and facilitates many services in order to extend the attack capacity of hackers. Using these tools, the cyber-criminals spread their malicious code to users through websites, e-mails and social media channels. Almost all the websites, personal or business websites, blogs, portals or e-learning platforms are potential targets for hackers, being involved in the DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), spamming and phishing attacks. Wherever there is a vulnerability in a website, the cybercriminals will use it to spread the malicious code.
This workshop represents an opportunity to present theoretical and practical aspects regarding eLearning systems security, including websites vulnerabilities, cyber threats, web based attacks, and methods to protect the websites and the data from eLearning platforms.
