Prof Bill Buchanan has been appointed as the Editor-in-Chief of a new Taylor & Francis journal:
Journal of Cyber Security Technology [outline]
and which aims to publish publishing Word-leading research.
Cyber security is a rapidly growing area of computer science and technology, encompassing software, systems, IT, networks, communications, cryptography, and various other fields across numerous platforms including traditional computers, smartphones, tablets, servers and any networkable device, whether Internet-connected or not.
The Journal of Cyber Security Technology is a new journal aimed at publishing Word-leading research and is dedicated to being the primary platform for research in all technical areas of cyber security. It will encompass original research and review papers in computer science, electronics, networking, information technology, systems, telecommunications, and other related areas. Topics will cover, but are not limited to, the following areas: Hacking, Denial-of-Service attacks, cyberwarfare, viruses, malware, vulnerability analysis, encryption, integrity, firewalls, authentication, exploits, and insider threats.
While some articles will be highly specialised in their nature, the journal will try and create a balance of addressing current research issues to a wide range of stakeholders, and will encourage inter-disciplinary papers on burning topics of the day.
The first few editions of the journal are focused on thought-leadership articles around key areas such as privacy, encryption-by-default, advanced persistent threat (APT), cyber warfare, cloud security, data loss prevention (DLP), critical infrastructure protection, cyber security education, threat detection/protection, and related topics. The Editor-in-Chief, Prof Bill Buchanan, thus welcomes thought-leadership papers in related areas.
