About the Journal

Aims and Scope

Our information systems have evolved to become increasingly complex and sophisticated and consequently, it is getting harder to defend these networks from attackers. The defenders are constantly playing catchup in the asymmetric conflict with attackers wherein the attackers just need to identify one vulnerability whereas the defender must protect against all attacks. Advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence have further complicated the problem by increasing the attack surface that hackers can exploit; there are numerous exploits for AI/ML systems that we need to address. Cybersecurity is a multidisciplinary problem resting on multiple silos of computer science, engineering, business, psychology, criminology, and law to name a few. To address this problem, we not only need technical solutions but also understand and steer human behavior toward safer cybersecurity habits. Technologically, we need new security architectures as well as scalable, and interoperable security policies. We also need digital forensics techniques to sift through the data and understand where failures and attacks originated as well as their modus operandi to be able to protect our networks and systems better. Finally, we need to change the asymmetric cyber security battle between defenders and attackers by engaging in active defense techniques to bog down the hackers. The aim of this journal is to publish advances in scientific knowledge directly related to cybersecurity that impacts not only the technical and forensics dimensions of cybersecurity but also organizational issues as well, including, user behavior, organizational support, security policies, auditing, internal controls, risk mitigation, etc.
