The huge potential in future connected services hinges on the precondition that privacy and security needs are dealt with in order for new services to be accepted. This issue is appearing increasingly on the agenda at both the company and individual level.

Cybersecurity and Privacy – Bridging the Gap addresses two very complex fields of the digital world: cybersecurity and privacy. These multifaceted and multidisciplinary issues are usually understood and valued differently by different individuals, data holders, and legal bodies, but a change in one field immediately affects the others. Policies, frameworks, strategies, laws, tools, techniques, and technologies – all of these are tightly interwoven when it comes to security and privacy.

This book is another attempt to bridge the gap between industry and academia by addressing the views from both areas on the subject. Technical topics discussed in the book include:

• Cybersecurity
• Encryption
• Privacy policy
• Trust
• Security and Internet of Things
• Botnets
• Data risks
• Cloudbased Services
• Visualization
