Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The financial loss caused to individuals and businesses has increased dramatically, causing millions of users to have financial and data loss every year. With the dramatic growth in the number of sophisticated attacks, it is critical that both governments and private sectors constantly enhance their detection strategies and validate the sufficiency of their efforts. This Special Issue aims to discuss recent approaches for solving problems related to the current countermeasures and development of innovative solutions and techniques to stand against cyberattacks, recent digital forensics strategies, and the design of secure computer communications using cryptography to ascertain that business and law enforcement agencies are aware of security breaches and to mitigate against advanced cyberattacks.

We encourage original submissions that either consider the characteristics of cybersecurity, cybercrime or propose innovative solutions to real-world scenarios. In particular, we encourage the submission of the articles offering research results, experimental solutions, and case studies and describe the current state of the art of cybersecurity. The submitted articles must discuss innovative research which has not been published nor is currently under review by other journals, conferences or books. Editors will make an initial assessment of the contributions, originality, and scope of all submissions. Papers that either lack originality and clarity in presentation or fall outside the scope of the Special Issue will not be sent for review, and authors will be swiftly contacted in such cases.
