Cyber-security and privacy are very active areas of research, and experts in this field are in growing demand by companies. Research in this area is highly relevant in today’s world - many aspects of our daily life depend on ICT - from mobile phones (more than one billion devices currently have the same operating system), computers in offices and programmable machines in factories, and intelligent surveillance cameras contributing to our safety (and infringing on our privacy). The pervasiveness of ICT increases the potential attack surface available to attackers, expanding the opportunities and potential for damage. Both the number of attackers and motivations for attacks are on the increase, indicating that cyber-security attacks can be a prosperous business.
