In a world where an online presence has become integral to commercial activity and to credibility there are a growing number of reasons to be anxious about those acting with vexatious and nefarious intent. Criminality in the cybersphere appears to be growing at an exponential rate and is a cause for legitimate concern. If we just pause for a moment to think about the varieties of criminal activity taking place, we soon come to recognise the need for a greater understanding of what is taking place, as well as awareness of the possible measures that can be taken to thwart those seeking to do harm. Blackmail & extortion, cybersquatting & typosquatting, digital piracy, fraudulent use of trademarks, impersonation, pharming, phishing and traffic diversion are just some of the damaging activities that are exercising those endeavouring to minimise cyber-risk. IJBCS recognises that this is a very serious subject worthy of further study and thus as an academic journal seeks to play a small, yet purposeful role, in raising awareness of the issues, as well as becoming a credible conduit for the dissemination of current research, analysis and opinion from across the globe.
IJBCS is happy to be associated with the International Conference on Business & Cyber Security taking place in London on 15th-16th May 2017.
