Computer security has been a major concern since the 1950s. The ubiquity of the internet has engendered the prevalence of information sharing among networked users and organisations. This has rendered possible countless invasions of privacy/security worldwide. This risk has generated enormous concern about information and computer security among businesses, governments, legislators, academics, researchers, scientists and the public. IJICS is a double-blind refereed, authoritative reference addressing development of information/computer security in information technology, political science, informatics, sociology, engineering and science.


 Topics covered include

  • Assurance and integrity of service
  • Computer crime prevention/detection, computer forensics and security
  • Confidentiality protection, cryptography and data protection
  • Database and data security, denial of service protection
  • E-commerce security, e-surveillance
  • Fraud/hacker/terrorism detection/prevention, information warfare, national security
  • Information ethics
  • Information privacy issues, information systems/information security, sharing
  • Internet abuse, network intruder prevention, internet/network security
  • Malicious code/unauthorised access protection, transaction security, virus/worm controls
