About the book

The prevalence of ICT worldwide and the increased level of users’ awareness in ICT as well, have forced software engineers to identify security and privacy as fundamental design aspects leading to the implementation of more trusted software systems and services. Thus, the inability of the existing privacy and security systems within modern environments such as IoT, IoE, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Cyber-Physical Systems to provide an adequate privacy and security framework associated with users’ social, legal and technological boundaries, under a multidisciplinary approach, has been highlighted. Therefore, new privacy and security mechanisms and techniques should be deployed to achieve an assurance level acceptable for these domains. In this regard, this book highlights and addresses the necessity and the importance of implementing design methods for security and privacy requirements elicitation, modeling and implementation taking into consideration legal, social and technical aspects, offering a “forum” for academics and researchers to present recent advances in these research areas.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
