Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the esteemed journal Cyber Security and Software Engineering is dedicated to gathering and showcasing the most recent scholarly findings, research, and innovations surrounding the ever-evolving field of cybersecurity and privacy.

Cybersecurity and privacy are pivotal in the digital world. These concerns extend beyond software developers and electronics manufacturers to everyday digital device users. Since the advent of software applications, particularly those handling private and sensitive data, security attacks have become inevitable. In this Special Issue, we concentrate on developing secure software applications in various environments and preventing malicious activities in cyber computer systems.

We warmly invite all dedicated researchers, professionals, and experts in the field to share their invaluable insights, groundbreaking discoveries, and forward-thinking perspectives. Through this collaborative effort, we aim to significantly enrich the field's existing body of knowledge, inspire new directions in research, and ultimately contribute to the development of a safer, more secure digital world.
