Risk assessment in Mobile Social Media: trends, threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures
Introduction to the special issue:
In recent years the world is experiencing the exponential growth of mobile social media and networks and their related platforms. The proliferation of innovative mobile network applications and services leads to the emergence of new forms of threats both for users, organizations (enterprises, communities, developers, etc.) and the society.
Social media have become a large platform for illegal activities such as malware propagation, identity theft, child pornography, etc. It is therefore a major objective to detect abnormal behaviors and to have efficient tools to assess these new forms of threats.
This special issue aims to present current state of art in risk assessment in mobile social media and networks. Authors are encouraged to submit their research papers on latest trends, threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures.
Topics of Interest (but are not limited to):
Trends in new threats and vulnerabilities identification
Survey of risk assessment in Mobile Social Media
Empirical and comparative studies (microblogging, social networks, online professional networks, etc.)
