The electronic collection, transmission, processing, storage and retrieval of digital information are present in all spheres of our modern computerised society. Most existing commercial and private services can no longer be imagined without the underlying infrastructure and technology for handling the digital information. As such, protection of digital information from unauthorised access and use (as well as resilience of the underlying network infrastructure and systems to various sorts of attacks and their proactive protection against the prevalent cyber threat) has become one of the main challenges of the technological development of our society.
