CyberEDU call for papers 2022

There is a need to produce a more substantial body of research and knowledge that shows the positive and active role of the human factor in cybersecurity in these difficult times showing best practices on the resilience of the first and the last line of defence: the trained user. The CyberEDU call for papers 2022 invites contributions that can show case examples of resilience, AI supported learning, gamification methods, training for home vs office, learning on the go. Being consistent with the last three editions, the 2022 Call advocates for a positive consideration of human actors in the cyber ecosystem and seeks papers that can contribute to this message: the Human Element as the last line of defence in cyber! 

CyberEDU invites contributions in general and specialized topics like cybersecurity training and awareness where security training and awareness are understood as the multitude of frameworks, methods and new ways of educating the human element. We seek a wide range of potential contributions including, but not limited to: opinion papers from young professionals, case studies from practitioners, empirical research papers, theory driven contributions and more.

 

In  2021 focus was on COVID situation and learning, 2020 it was abouut policy and strategy, in 2019 the essence was sharing of best practices between the Romanian and Finnish Presidencies of the Council of the EU, awarding best papers with presentations in partner events like RAISA, CyberLab, APWG EU and a journal publication.

The 2022 CyberEDU will seek to promote the submitted papers in a similar way and invite authors to attend partner events.
