Increasingly, the global society is adapting to the computerized
information systems for all data and information transactions. People
tend to store all their personal, business and public information on
the web for enhanced storage, search and access. While society relies
on web and computerized information storage, attackers misuse the
technology and secure the sensitive information. To prevent such
attacks, information security researchers have developed mechanisms
and technology to protect data loss and intrusion. Intrusion and
prevention are on-going processes and technology development reflects
upon these operations. Users need to understand the data protection
mechanisms comprehensively. Comprehensive knowledge on information
security is required not only for researchers and practitioners, but
also for policy makers, system managers, owners and administrators.
The process of building and imparting information security knowledge
is possible through the creation of a comprehensive collection of
research on the topic.. Unfortunately, such a collection of research
on security does not exist. The forthcoming handbook on Information
Security will address significant issues in the field.

Submission and Review Process

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit a 2-5 page
manuscript proposal clearly explaining the objective and concerns of
the proposed chapter on or before May 15. Authors of accepted
proposals will be notified about the status of their proposals and
sent chapter organizational guidelines. Full chapters should be about
8,000-10,000 words in length and expected to be submitted by September
30, 2008.

All chapters will be subject to a double-blind peer review process.

The proposed handbook would address the following titles, but not limited.
