Here is the ultimate book on the worldwide movement of hackers, pranksters, and activists that operates under the non-name Anonymous, by the writer the Huffington Post says â€śknows all of Anonymousâ€™ deepest, darkest secrets.â€ť
Half a dozen years ago, anthropologist Gabriella Coleman set out to study the rise of this global phenomenon just as some of its members were turning to political protest and dangerous disruption (before Anonymous shot to fame as a key player in the battles over WikiLeaks, the Arab Spring, and Occupy Wall Street). She ended up becoming so closely connected to Anonymous that the tricky story of her insideâ€“outside status as Anon confidante, interpreter, and erstwhile mouthpiece forms one of the themes of this witty and entirely engrossing book.The narrative brims with details unearthed from within a notoriously mysterious subculture, whose semi-legendary trickstersâ€”such as Topiary, tflow, Anachaos, and Sabuâ€”emerge as complex, diverse, politically and culturally sophisticated people. Propelled by years of chats and encounters with a multitude of hackers, including imprisoned activist Jeremy Hammond and the double agent who helped put him away, Hector Monsegur, Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy is filled with insights into the meaning of digital activism and little understood facets of culture in the Internet age, including the history of â€śtrolling,â€ť the ethics and metaphysics of hacking, and the origins and manifold meanings of â€śthe lulz.â€ť
Modern military coalition operations rely on the ability of multiple independently developed networks to function cohesively, allowing information collected by different sources to be transmitted, analyzed, processed, and provided to troops involved in tactical operations.
Network Science for Military Coalition Operations: Information Exchange and Interaction presents an advanced view of this delicate and vital operation. However, an understanding of the science behind coalition operations can benefit not just military operations, but any context in the modern world where two independent organizations need to collaborate together for a shared goal. In this age of globalization, the research in this book becomes of unprecedented importance, not only for the military, where most stable and advance techniques are required, but also for society at large, which also demands constant improvement in network science.

Successful cyberattacks can damage your organisation, no matter who is behind them The goals of the cyberterrorist, the cybercriminal, the cyberactivist and the state-sponsored hacker may not be the same – but the outcomes can be equally devastating. Each can cause serious challenges for your organisation, ranging from information theft and disruption of normal operations to loss of reputation or credibility. Cyber security is much more than technology Many books on cybersecurity focus on technical responses to these threats. As important as this is, human fallibility and other known vulnerabilities will still allow hackers to easily break into a system that has not taken account of these factors. CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime and CyberActivism encourages cybersecurity professionals to take a wider view of what cybersecurity means, and to make the most of international standards and best practices to create a culture of cybersecurity awareness within their organizations that complements their technology-based defences. A cyber aware workforce equals better security This second edition takes a deep look at the changing threats in the cyber landscape, and includes an updated body of knowledge that describes how to acquire, develop, and sustain a secure information environment that goes beyond technology. This enables you to move towards a cyber aware organisational culture that is more robust and better able to deal with a wider range of threats. Related references, as well as recommendations for additional reading, are included at the end of each chapter making this a valuable resource for trainers, researchers and cybersecurity practitioners.
