What is Cyber security?
Cyber Security is a broad field that encompasses a wide-range of concerns from the more traditional security concerns, such as cryptography, access control and verification to concerns emerging from the ever increasing digital society such as big-data analytics, intrusion, cloud computing and the internet of things.
Aspects of Cyber Security such as privacy and confidentiality, human behaviour, public policy, legal aspects and economics are increasingly recognised as vital areas for research.
