As cyber attacks and threats have been escalating their negative impact on IT infrastructures, cybersecurity, being on the confluence of computer science, electrical engineering and mathematics, emerges as an important, independent discipline, which provides the theory, the tools and the techniques to predict, prevent and mitigate cyber attacks.
However, the paucity of cyber security professionals, experts, and academics still remain the major obstacle to sustain meaningful strategies and deploy effective countermeasures to overcome cybersecurity threats.
