Call For Papers

COVID-19 pandemic crisis has impacted our lives and changed many daily routines in a considerably short time. COVID-19 has brought various technical and organizational challenges that require a thorough understanding and reassessing of our methods and tools in the cybersecurity area. It is highly likely that some of such changes may be permanent or continue in other forms in the post-COVID-19 era. It is timely to think about our crisis management capabilities, bring quick solutions to the ongoing situation, and assess the implications in cyber security. This special issue aims to contribute to the literature with high quality and original articles addressing COVID-19 related cyber security topics.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to (from a COVID-19 perspective):

* Adaptive risk, vulnerability and asset management systems
* Risks of work from home and mitigation strategies
* Global, national and sector-based information sharing
* The policy-based and technical methods of limiting distribution of rumours,
misinformation, and propaganda
* Cybersecurity practices in sectors including health, retail, and logistics
* Optimization of incident handling, vulnerability identification and threat
management processes in security operating centres
* Changes in the cybercrime landscape and new malicious behaviour patterns such as
phishing and ransomware campaigns
* Evaluation of intrusion detection/security monitoring systems according to the
changes in the threat landscape
* Third-party and supply-chain risks
* Secure development life cycles and improving their effectiveness in crises
* Cyber crisis management during a pandemic
* Privacy issues related to contact tracing from both technical and legal
perspectives (e.g., GDPR)
