The blockchain is the best new tool of the decade. However, at the beginning of 2019, this subject is still experiencing a severe lack of understanding and awareness on the part of the general public. This is a problematic starting point for the full success of its evolution.

As a revolutionary technology, Blockchain provides a practical solution to enable a secure and decentralized public ledger that a huge plethora of exciting new technology applications in several areas, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems, Manufacturing, Supply-Chain, etc.

Blockchain technology has infiltrated all areas of our lives, from manufacturing to healthcare and beyond. Cybersecurity is an industry that has been significantly affected by this technology and maybe more so in the future.

Blockchain Technology is defined as a decentralized system of distributed registers that are used to record data transactions on multiple computers. The reason this technology has gained popularity is that you can put any digital asset or transaction in the blocking chain, the industry does not matter. Blockchain technology can be used to prevent any data breach, identity theft, cyber-attacks or criminal acts in transactions. This ensures that data remains private and secure.

The main goal of this project is to encourage both researchers and practitioners to share and exchange their experiences and recent studies between academia and industry. The overall objectives are:

To improve the awareness of readers about Blockchain technology application in cybersecurity.
To analyze and present the state-of-the-art of the Blockchain technology and cybersecurity and related technologies and methodologies.
To highlight and discuss the recent development and emerging trends Blockchain for Cybersecurity and Privacy.
To propose new models, practical solutions and technological advances related to Blockchain for Cybersecurity and Privacy.
To Discuss new Blockchain models, prototypes and protocols for Cybersecurity and Privacy.
