Introduction
This book will address both theories and empirical procedures for the applications of machine learning and data mining to solve problems in emerging trends in cyber dynamics. Cyber dynamics is a term used to describe resilient algorithms, strategies, techniques and architectures for the development of the cyberspace environment such as cloud computing services, cyber security, data analytics, disruptive technologies like the blockchain, etc. The edited book intends to present new machine learning and data mining approaches in solving problems in emerging trends in cyber dynamics.

Scope and Topics
For better understanding by the readers, basic concepts, related work reviews, illustrations, empirical results and tables are expected to be integrated in each chapter to give the readers a maximum understanding and allow to easily follow the methodology and the results presented. The target audience of the edited book will come from different backgrounds. The audience will share and exchange novel knowledge, methods, industry experience and theories. The chapter contributions should described solving challenging issues using machine learning or data mining in any of the following domains:
