Call for papers:"Cyber Security Issues and Solutions"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Information and Computer Security.

Cyber security is quickly and constantly evolving due to the nature of security risks. Cyber security is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs and data from attack, damage or unauthorised access. It involves the protection of information assets by addressing threats to information processed, stored, and transported by internetworked information systems.

The objective of this special issue will be to bring together research contributions on the design, specification, and implementation of architectures, protocols, and algorithms for current and future cyber security issues and solutions.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • New paradigms in cyber security
  • Emerging attack methods
  • Digital forensics and privacy issues in cloud computing
  • Cyber monitoring approaches
  • Big data security strategy
  • Big data security issues in social networks
  • Security and fault tolerance for embedded or ubiquitous systems
  • Critical issues and solutions of cyber security in tele-health
  • Cyber security in mobile embedded systems
  • Cyber security assessment
  • Data analytics for cyber resilience
  • Organisational security (government, commercial)
  • Resilient smart cities
  • Resilient internet of things (RIOT)
  • Cyber-cities and cyber-environments
  • Critical infrastructure security
  • Backup and recovery for systems of systems
  • Disaster planning and management from cyber perspective
  • Integrated and smarter sensors
  • Cloud computing security
  • Big-data security
