About ACSA

The Applied Computer Security Associates (ACSA) is a non-profit association of computer security professionals who have a common goal of improving the understanding, theory, and practice of computer security. To this end, ACSA supports a number of activities, all of which serve the goal of improving the computer security field.

ACSA was initially created as the on-going organization that provided continuity funding to the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference. The original organization was founded in 1985 as the Aerospace Computer Security Associates (the conference was the Aerospace Computer Security Conference). In 1987, the organization was incorporated in the state of Maryland. In 1989, the conference was renamed the Annual Computer Security Applications Conference. In 1995, ACSA changed its name to the Applied Computer Security Associates.
