International Conference on Information Security and Cryptology Conference (ISCTurkey) has been held since 2006. The 13th conference was completed in Ankara, Turkey, between December 3-4, 2020 via online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This conference aims to bring people from both academia and industry to share the latest advances in cyber security and cryptology, develop cooperation between university and industry, inform the public, and increase the public awareness of information security. This year, the main theme of the ISCTurkey 2020 Conference has been determined as "Cyber Security and Secure Data Sharing and Transfer." The increase in applications of Machine to Machine communication (M2M), the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Technology, and Post-Quantum Cryptography drastically changes the nature of both cyber defense and cyber-attacks. New developments and changes in these fields within the framework of the definition of digital identity emerging are discussed at the conference. Besides, cyber-attacks and the measures to be taken against them are the conference's other topics.

This year, the number of submissions to ISCTurkey 2020 was 29. 14 papers out of 29 were accepted after the reviewing process. The acceptance rate is 48.28%. The total number of reviewers was 87. At least three reviewers from the scientific committee members reviewed all papers submitted and the average number of reviewers for each article was three.

We would like to thank all authors for submitting their works, reviewers for their time for reviewing and commenting on the submissions, and committee members for their time to make this conference successful. We also would like to thank all sponsors for financial and technical support.
