The original Call for Papers:

Information & Security: An International Journal
Special issue on "Cybersecurity Challenges and Responses"
Editor: Prof. Eugene Nikolov

Information and communications technologies and networks underpin the functioning of modern societies, drive innovation and competitiveness, connect people and contribute to quality of life. But these developments have a dark side; ill-wishers may act individually, as a group, as a loosely connected network or, at the extreme, with the support of a state. They try to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in the cyberspace and attack them attempting to discredit a state or an organization, create panic, to cause economic loss and/or to profit.

Technologies and methods to attack computer systems and networks constantly evolve, as does the response to cyber threats. Information & Security: An International Journal (I&S) has already addressed the interaction between information technologies and terrorism, cybercrime and cybersecurity, as well as the dialectics of information security. A number of recent examples of evolving cyber threats got the attention of most senior decision makers. Research institutes, universities and high-tech companies, along with security services, the military, and dedicated personnel of large public and business organizations seek proper responses to these threats.

The I&S Editorial Board is announcing this Call for Papers to address organizational, procedural and technological aspects of cybersecurity. We will welcome contributions on methods and tools for:

- Identification of vulnerabilities of the information infrastructure
- Protection of the information infrastructure
- Detection of cyber attacks
- Responding to cyber attacks
- Disaster recovery and consequence management.

The I&S issue will include also presentations of approaches, methods, models, and tools supporting respective decision-making processes, for instance:

- How to create a feasible cybersecurity strategy?
- How to or address the challenges of cross-border cooperation?
- How to organize the protection of the information infrastructure in view resource constraints and evolving threats?

Guest Editor of this special I&S issue is Prof. Eugene Nikolov, Vice President of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Director of the National Laboratory of Computer Virology, Sofia, Bulgaria. Interested authors may submit their papers to the Guest Editor with a copy to the I&S Managing Editor.

For questions, proposals and submissions of book reviews, description of Web sites and other related initiatives address the I&S Managing Editor.

Important Dates:
- Deadline for submission of full text papers: 15 February 2011
- Expected publication: April 2011
