Background & Call for Manuscripts:
The modern Internet is a collection of traditional hosts, powerful computer systems, mobile phones, and a range of IoT devices interconnected by different network technologies and complex infrastructures. In this cyberspace, administrated in different domains and powered with a variety of highly interactive, smart-enabled and multiple-area-spanning services, a huge load of sensitive data is constantly produced and transferred.
On the negative side, the Internet is subject to many new and old security and privacy risks and challenges, and its use magnifies the attack surface. Therefore, the task of ensuring security, privacy, safety and resilience requires multidisciplinary approaches to combine computer science knowledge with knowledge from different fields, such as behavioral sciences, sociology, criminology, investigations and law.
This special issue aims to offer a mixture of selected extended versions of papers presented at the European Interdisciplinary Cybersecurity Conference (EICC2023) and accepted papers originating from the public call. We welcome submissions dealing with the abovementioned risks and problems, new challenges, interdisciplinary issues, and innovative multidisciplinary solutions (defense mechanisms, methods, and countermeasures) for promoting cyber security in the cyberspace.
We cordially invite prospective authors to submit original papers on the following topics (list is not exhaustive):
Cybersecurity and cyber resilience
Digital currency, blockchains and cybercrime
Law, investigation, internet jurisdiction and ethics
Child safety in the cyberspace
Surveillance, interception, blocking and sovereignty
Critical infrastructure security
Embedded systems security
Business continuity and disaster recovery
Information security governance
Internet of things security
Big data and cybersecurity
Healthcare information security
Software development security
Cyber-physical systems security
Adversarial machine learning
