Speech Title: Robust denoising technique for ultrasound images by splicing of low rankfilter and principal component analysis
Speech Abstract: Robust image denoising techniques are still a significant challenge for medical ultrasound images. Though the difficulty of the recently proposed strategies, most techniques have not yet achieved desired level of applicability. The principle focus of this paper is a thresholding strategy together with a splicing of Low Rank Filtering (LRF) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) techniques. By means of the proposed robust denoising technique, the denoised medical ultrasound image is assessed until the point that it reaches desired level. The input noisy medical ultrasound image is given to the hybridization technique of LRF mechanism and PCA transformation which is used for removing the noise in medical ultrasound image. For effective image denoising, the segmentation process is done with the guide of sparse decomposition framework. Consequently, denoised image threshold is compared with the threshold value of training images in the database and this is repeated until we get a better denoised image. For analysis purpose, the set of five medical ultrasound images of artery have been considered. These medical ultrasound images are used for quantitative analysis. Performance of these recent filters as two phase matrix decomposition denoised filter, new adaptive denoised filter, and fast fourier Bessel steerable PCA (FFBsPCA) denoised filter have been compared with our proposed splicing denoised method in terms of peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) value and mean square error (MSE) value performance index under various noise density selection. Analytical results for set of five medical ultrasound images have shown that this proposed splice filtering method is more robust for noise reduction. So, it has shown that proposed splice filtering method is robust for medical ultrasound image denoising which preserves the clinical details and minimizing the noise level in medical ultrasound images.

Speech Title: The role of information security awareness in online shopping trends
Speech Abstract: Information security is recognized as critically important to ensure prevention of unauthorized access to sensitive information in various systems. As dependency on online platforms increases, the crucial role of information security promotes indeed.
Contemporary to stay-at-home orders and lock-down regulations, hundreds of thousands of individuals have switched to online platforms for every item that they were previously accustomed to handle by physical presence. Dramatic shift in users' behavior has increased the likelihood of being exposed to cyber security issues and targeted by cyber-criminals. The tremendous transition in uders' behavior raises information security concerns as well.
The attention of business owners is attracted to information security principles to mitigate potential risks of online shopping aiming to create a smooth shopping journey for their customers more than before. On the other hand, users that register their basic personal and financial information in acquisition forms are faced with several security concerns that should be addressed too.
The role of information security is indispensable in determining the preference of users of different online applications.
Unauthorized access to personal information by hackers and cyber-criminals subsequently leading to fraud and stealing formulates the users’ perception toward online platforms negatively resulting in massive financial and credibility losses.
Empowering individuals and raising consciousness revolving potential risks and issues as well as raising awareness regarding security and privacy problems associated with online platforms could give confidence to the customer. Meeting safe online platforms objectives could be achieved through Information Security Awareness programs.
