Cyber security issues are at the forefront of IS research as the increase in Web services and online operations for various industries and critical businesses has led to an increase in different threats and malicious activities. The security community have witnessed a significant increase in security threats, violations and spread of different types of malware. Therefore, critical industries must keep their operational environment secure and resilient against constantly evolving cyber threats. There are several strong strands of research and interest that are developing in the area including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation.
