    This book sheds light on the cyber security challenges associated with nextgeneration computing technologies, emphasizing the serious threats posed to individuals, businesses, and nations. With everything becoming increasingly interconnected via the Internet, data security becomes paramount. As technology advances, people need to secure their data communication processes. Personal data security, including data integrity and confidentiality, is particularly vulnerable. Therefore, the concept of cyber security forensics emerges to ensure data security for everyone, addressing issues such as data control, hijacking, and threats to personal devices such as mobile phones, laptops, and other smart technologies. This book covers key topics related to cyber security in next-generation computing technologies, ultimately enhancing the quality of life for citizens, facilitating interaction with smart governments, and promoting secure communication processes.
