Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the vigorous development of the Internet, information technology has dramatically brought many opportunities and conveniences to people's lives. However, these opportunities have also created serious risks in relation to information security. Therefore, there has been a tremendous increase in research in the area of network and information security.

The importance and impact of network and information security are significantly increasing. Network and information security is an interdisciplinary field that combines a set of areas including computer science, software development, data science, and communication network. As a research topic, network and information security apply scientific methods, processes, algorithms, and systems to extract threats and vulnerabilities from structured and unstructured data to solve various security problems in practical applications.

Network and information security involve government, military, culture, education, finance, scientific research, energy, business, and other fields. Its research contents mainly include access control, authentication, biometrics, cryptography, cyber-physical systems, information hiding, Intrusion detection, malware, quantum cryptography, sensor networks, and usable security.

This Special Issue will discuss this trending topic and present innovative solutions to show the importance of network and information security to researchers, managers, industry, society, and other communities.

Title: ECHO in Action: Bridging the cyber security skills gap
Authors: Ioannis Chalkias; Cagatay Yucel; Jane Henriksen-Bulmer; Vasilis Katos; Huseyin Dogan; Paul Whittington
Affiliation: Bournemouth University
Abstract: This paper is presenting the reuslts and evaluations from an event that was organised as part of ECHO show case for demonstrating the outputs and assets from the project. These assets include a federated cyber range that facilititates multi-sector, transversal cyber security scenarios and an early warning system fro sharing cyber threat intelligence between organisations and sectors in real-time. This paper presents the demonstration of cyber security training scenarios on federated cyber ranges and its implications over the incident response. Using the Early Warning system (EWS), we trained just under a hundred students in incident response detection and prevention, followed by an incident response exercise where students had to defend againist the attacks conducted through federated cyber range in real-time.
