Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cybersecurity is a real and more and more critical need in a digitized society, in which the number of threats and their impacts continues to grow. Today, digital elements and infrastructures are ever more complex and the IT-dependent elements that constitute the essential pillars of communication, economic, social, and institutional infrastructures require appropriate risk analysis and management mechanisms. Security management and threat mitigation within these systems have implicitly become a fundamental issue for citizens (to preserve their privacy), for businesses (to protect digital assets and transactions), and for states (to protect their critical infrastructures and ensure the continuity of government and government services, etc.), and, therefore, it is extremely important to have adequate management systems to solve all the problems that currently exist.

This Special Issue will focus on the different trends associated with security governance and information system security management to provide a broad and comprehensive view of this complex scenario.

Proposals for this Special Issue on ''Security Governance & Information Security Management Systems'' are requested to represent an overview of the current status of this research field, covering a variety of topics including, but not limited to, new standards, frameworks, methods, algorithms, solutions, and applications in the following areas:

  • Cybersecurity governance and awareness
  • Information security management systems
  • Information system risk analysis and management
  • Cybersecurity risk in Industry
  • Security compliance
  • Cybersecurity law & regulations
  • Cybersecurity audits
  • Business continuity plans
  • Resiliency policy
  • Maturity levels in information security management systems
  • Emerging challenges in information security management systems
  • Blockchain technology for information security management systems
  • Quantum technology for information security management systems
