Special Issue on Risk Management for Software Intensive Systems

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2018

Special Issue Information

Software systems exist in every part of society, from individuals to business. Business is now heavily dependent on such system to process and manage information. However, systems are becoming more complex, assets within systems are widely dispersed and are liable to continuous change and evolution to support business needs. Due to the complexity of systems and interdependences among computers, communications and various software components, risks are likely to increase. These risks can be sudden and unexpected, and may pose potential damage to businesses.

Risk management is a key discipline for making effective decisions and communicating results within organizations. The purpose of risk management is to identify potential managerial and technical problems before they occur so that actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate the probability and/or impact of these problems, should they occur. Risk, in theory, is the product of the probably of the occurrence of an event and its impacts. However, sometimes it is challenging to determine these values within a domain. Therefore, academics and industries are using their own practices for assessing risks.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to enhance knowledge for both industry and the research community in the area of risk assessment and management practices. Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied articles, addressing the topics of this Special Issue by offering new approaches, research results, case studies, and best practices. The Guest Editors will select high-quality research to proceed, and reviewers will be selected from among researchers active in the field.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

* Finding innovative ways to assess and manage risk for software and/or cyber physical system
* Quantitatively and/or qualitatively analyzing and assessing risks
* Determining appropriate control measures in response to risk assessments
* Impact of cascading risk scenarios
* Cyber security risk management
* Risk-based decision making
* Evolution of risk
* Risk perception and communications
* Modelling and management of risk
* Risk management processes
* Case studies
