TRADOC Pam 525-7-8 takes a comprehensive look at how the Army’s future force in 2016-2028 will leverage cyberspace and CyberOps. This pamphlet includes a conceptual framework for integrating CyberOps into full spectrum operations (FSO), thereby providing the basis for follow-on doctrine development efforts. This conceptual framework outlines how commanders integrate CyberOps to gain advantage, protect that advantage, and place adversaries at a disadvantage. This pamphlet establishes a common lexicon for Army CyberOps, and describes the relationship between cyberspace, the other four domains (air, land, maritime, and space), and the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS). TRADOC Pam 525-7-8 explains how converging technologies will increasingly affect FSO and influence capability development; thereby enabling the Army to influence the design, development, acquisition, and employment of fully integrated cyber capabilities.
In diesem Buch erfahren Wirtschaftswissenschaftler, wie Firmen nach Hackerangriffen vom Markt verschwinden und wie Hacker Aktienkurse beeinflussen können. Lernen Sie, wie Homo oeconomicus beim Thema Cyber Security zum Homo carens securitate wird und wie es gelingt, mithilfe der wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen „Brille“ (oder: Perspektive/Sicht) ganz neue Lösungsansätze und Sichtweisen im Kampf gegen Wirtschaftsspione, Hacker und Cyber-Kriminelle zu erkennen. Cyber Security bzw. IT-Sicherheit ist ein Zukunftsthema, an dem kaum jemand vorbeikommt. Dieses Buch beschreibt anhand aktueller Vorfälle – ohne technisches Grundwissen vorauszusetzen –, was Ökonomen wissen müssen, um sich am Gespräch über eines der wichtigsten Zukunftsthemen unserer Zeit beteiligen zu können.
Massive amounts of data on human beings can now be analyzed. Pragmatic purposes abound, including selling goods and services, winning political campaigns, and identifying possible terrorists. Yet 'big data' can also be harnessed to serve the public good: scientists can use big data to do research that improves the lives of human beings, improves government services, and reduces taxpayer costs. In order to achieve this goal, researchers must have access to this data – raising important privacy questions. What are the ethical and legal requirements? What are the rules of engagement? What are the best ways to provide access while also protecting confidentiality? Are there reasonable mechanisms to compensate citizens for privacy loss? The goal of this book is to answer some of these questions. The book's authors paint an intellectual landscape that includes legal, economic, and statistical frameworks. The authors also identify new practical approaches that simultaneously maximize the utility of data access while minimizing information risk.
As we live more of our lives online and entrust personal information to the cloud, we need to be much more aware and proactive about protecting ourselves. Are you safe from hackers? Not without taking precautions. Your identity can be stolen, your company's intellectual property can be copied and sold, and even hacks that just a few years ago sounded like science fiction will soon be possible: vehicle systems can already be hacked, and our power grid can be manipulated or sabotaged by terrorists.
But knowledge is power. In this easy-to-read, fascinating and fully illustrated book, you learn how hackers make money, and what they target – along with concrete, hands-on hints for fighting back, whether you’re a concerned parent or a top executive.

At last, the first full account of the cypherpunks who aim to free the world’s institutional secrets, by Forbes journalist Andy Greenberg who has traced their shadowy history from the cryptography revolution of the 1970s to Wikileaks founding hacker Julian Assange, Anonymous, and beyond.
WikiLeaks brought to light a new form of whistleblowing, using powerful cryptographic code to hide leakers’ identities while they spill the private data of government agencies and corporations. But that technology has been evolving for decades in the hands of hackers and radical activists, from the libertarian enclaves of Northern California to Berlin to the Balkans. And the secret-killing machine continues to evolve beyond WikiLeaks, as a movement of hacktivists aims to obliterate the world’s institutional secrecy.
