The cyber security has several potential open research challenges as well as future scope. There are various flaws in the ICT and cyber systems such as level code defects, trustworthy computing and selfish behavior of the users and machines, security architecture imperfections, privacy shortcomings, usability issues, and weak security metrics. To overcome these flaws with effective solutions is a challenging task. Key research challenges and future scope is discussed subject wise in this chapter.
