The fifth (5th) International Conference on Frontiers in Cyber Security (FCS 2022) will be held in Kumasi, Ghana from December 13th to December 15th, 2022, organized by the Department of Computer Science, KNUST; the Center for Cyber Security, University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (UESTC), and Huaiyin Institute of Technology (HYIT). Cyber security is optimally a subject of great concern for nations, industry practictioners and the academia. New cyber security technologies are emerging. Many universities and institutions have set up the research center or school for cyber security. Both government and enterprises are strongly supporting teaching and research in the cyber security. However, how to carry out research and education in cyber security is still a challenge for many. How to run the center for cyber security is also worth exploring since new center usually involves many departments. The FCS conference provides a good platform for researchers and practitioners to exchange the latest research results in cyber security and management experience in operating such a center. We plan to publish all conference proceedings in the Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) which is indexed by Scopus and EI.
