Message from the Editors

Welcome to the inaugural issue of CYBERSECURITY. This new journal aims at meeting the growing demands for understanding and addressing new security threats to real-world computing systems, from those relevant to our daily life (such as mobile phones) to the infrastructures critical to the national security. Security has been an ever-evolving effort. Research in this area always rides on new technological waves, seeking new challenges and opportunities on the technological frontier. This trend has also been witnessed in the recent progress of Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as other fast expanding areas such as IoT, blockchains, cloud computing and big data. This new journal aims to capture the advancing research developments, bringing the audience with the latest research outcomes which may provide computing systems with better protection, or help better understand and address the emerging risks that come with the technique advances.
