The sophisticated methods used in recent high-profile cyber incidents have driven many to need to understand how such security issues work. Demystifying the complexity often associated with information assurance, Cyber Security Essentials provides a clear understanding of the concepts behind prevalent threats, tactics, and procedures. To accomplish this, the team of security professionals from VeriSign’s iDefense® Security Intelligence Services supply an extensive review of the computer security landscape. Although the text is accessible to those new to cyber security, its comprehensive nature makes it ideal for experts who need to explain how computer security works to non-technical staff. Providing a fundamental understanding of the theory behind the key issues impacting cyber security, the book: Covers attacker methods and motivations, exploitation trends, malicious code techniques, and the latest threat vectors Addresses more than 75 key security concepts in a series of concise, well-illustrated summaries designed for most levels of technical understanding Supplies actionable advice for the mitigation of threats Breaks down the code used to write exploits into understandable diagrams This book is not about the latest attack trends or botnets. It’s about the reasons why these problems continue to plague us. By better understanding the logic presented in these pages, readers will be prepared to transition to a career in the growing field of cyber security and enable proactive responses to the threats and attacks on the horizon.
Turning National Solutions Into International Cooperation
Author: James Andrew Lewis
"This volume looks at the challenges of cyberspace in an interdependent world and at the need for new, cooperative modes of governance to build cyber security. Making networks and critical infrastructure secure requires competent domestic strategies. But it also requires a willingness among governments to take the lead in supporting one another through effective legal structures and agreements such as the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime. The authors explore informal and formal bilateral and multilateral approaches to transnational cooperation on cyber security and examine the elements needed for success."--BOOK JACKET.
Cyber Security – Essential principles to secure your organisation takes you through the fundamentals of cyber security, the principles that underpin it, vulnerabilities and threats, and how to defend against attacks.
Cyber Security explains cybercrime in terms of a market of vulnerability and lays down the fundamentals of cyber security. It explains the management of cyber security and informs the readers about the cyber investigators and digital forensics. Also discussed in the book is the explanation of social media, botnet and the intrusion detection, the relation of cyber security with industrial control systems, the legal framework for cyber security and the role of automation in cyber security.

Deterrence and IT Protection for Critical Infrastructures
Author: Maurizio Martellini
Pubpsher: Springer Science & Business Media
The experts of the International Working Group-Landau Network Centro Volta (IWG-LNCV) discuss aspects of cyber security and present possible methods of deterrence, defense and resilience against cyber attacks. This SpringerBrief covers state-of-the-art documentation on the deterrence power of cyber attacks and argues that nations are entering a new cyber arms race. The brief also provides a technical analysis of possible cyber attacks towards critical infrastructures in the chemical industry and chemical safety industry. The authors also propose modern analyses and a holistic approach to resilience and security of Industrial Control Systems. The combination of contextual overview and future directions in the field makes this brief a useful resource for researchers and professionals studying systems security, data security and data structures. Advanced-level students interested in data security will also find this brief a helpful guide to recent research.

This book defines the nature and scope of insider problems as viewed by the financial industry. This edited volume is based on the first workshop on Insider Attack and Cyber Security, IACS 2007. The workshop was a joint effort from the Information Security Departments of Columbia University and Dartmouth College. The book sets an agenda for an ongoing research initiative to solve one of the most vexing problems encountered in security, and a range of topics from critical IT infrastructure to insider threats. In some ways, the insider problem is the ultimate security problem.
Cyber Security: Concepts and Cases explains the basic ideas behind cyber security using real-world examples. There are numerous textbooks and professional reference titles that adopt a very formal and theoretical approach to explaining computer security; these are all very insightful, but readers can waste a lot of time reading them while "Rome burns". This title explains the key concepts behind planning and operationalising responses to cyber threats, using real-world case studies.
