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.
