About the book

Cyberspace is a vast area that has been used for non-physical activities and can involve various factors that can harm or be beneficial in an undetected and hard-to-capture manner. The emergence of 4.0 technologies brought by the 4th Industrial Revolution has brought more attention to the utilization of cyberspace for humankind. Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical System (CPS), Big Data, and Blockchain have influenced cyberspace whether for good or bad. Hence, the challenges and threats to cyberspace have to be anticipated especially in the use of 4.0 technologies.

This book aims to bring comprehensive perspectives on the utilization of cyberspace in the context of 4.0 technologies. Its challenges and threats will be elaborated comprehensively to allow the readers to have new insights not only from its benefits and challenges but also to increase the awareness of the positive and negative impacts of cyberspace. It also hopes to propose information security, and cyber defense solutions, as well as provide definitions for selected threats and vulnerabilities of cyberspace. The disruptive potential of cyber tools, merging with the emergence of 4.0 technologies, will be examined from the technical point of view.
