Welcome to our research section. This section captures the contributions and intellectual output of AICL Fellows. These contributions are channeled through publication outlet: Cybersecurity Perspectives. Please see below for details on this journal.
AICL’s Cybersecurity Perspectives serves as a forum for contemporary issues regarding cybersecurity leadership in the digital society. The aim of this journal is to provide meaningful dialogue to address cybersecurity, information privacy and digital ethics issues at the organizational and societal levels.
We seek to achieve this objective by publishing articles that:
(1) provide innovative solutions and recommendations to well-known and emerging cybersecurity issues,
(2) address controversial and interdisciplinary approaches, and
(3) provide solutions to cybersecurity and privacy issues at the organizational and societal level based on established research.
We encourage ideas in the developmental stages. Our endeavor is to provide a platform to share diverse viewpoints on established and controversial cybersecurity and information privacy topics.
Cybersecurity Perspectives categories are focused on initiating dialogue on extant challenges of the field and providing recommendations to ensure safer digital society.
The journal invites contributions in three categories:
C-Suite Perspectives, Industry Perspectives, and Research Perspectives.
This category is focused on Board, Executive or C-level viewpoint on managing cybersecurity, ensuring privacy, or confronting ethical concerns – the challenges, constraints, and innovative practices.
This section focuses mainly on cybersecurity issues affecting industry practices and/or societal outcomes.
This category is focused on bridging the implications of cybersecurity research into practical principles for industry and societal use.
Under these three categories, we encourage authors to consider following (but not limited to) types of papers.
Opinionated pieces on practices or issues regarding cybersecurity, information privacy or digital ethics.
Case studies of organizational practices or societal problems on cybersecurity, information privacy, or digital ethics.
Reviews of best practices, technologies, regulations or standards for cybersecurity or information privacy.
Recommendations or implications of emergent technologies on safety of Digital Society.
