Research Methods for Cyber Security teaches the needed scientific methods for generating impactful theories, adding critical rigor to the cyber security field.
Research Methods for Cyber Security begins by showing how cyber security fits amongst other scientific fields. The book shows how to develop a research plan, beginning with starting research with a question, then offers a detailed description of the five approaches to cyber security research; formal theoretical, study, hypothetico-deductive, predictive modeling, and applied research. Each approach concludes with recommended outlines and suggested templates for submission to peer reviewed venues. The book concludes with addressing solutions to key cross-cutting issues within cyber security research.
Cyber security research contends with numerous unique issues, such as an extremely fast environment evolution, adversarial behavior, and the merging of natural and social science phenomena. Research Methods for Cyber Security addresses these concerns and much more by teaching readers not only the process of science in the context of cyber security research, but providing assistance in execution of research as well. Takes an applied approach and presents research methods from a cyber security science perspectiveCatalyzes the rigorous research necessary to propel the cyber security field forwardAdaptable workflows and methods for the type of research being conducted, presented in the context of real-world usage
