Cybersecurity and Human Rights in the Age of Cyberveillance is a collection of articles by distinguished authors from the US and Europe and presents a contemporary perspectives on the limits online of human rights. By considering the latest political events and case law, including the NSA PRISM surveillance program controversy, the planned EU data protection amendments, and the latest European Court of Human Rights jurisprudence, it provides an analysis of the ongoing legal discourse on global cyberveillance.

Using examples from contemporary state practice, including content filtering and Internet shutdowns during the Arab Spring as well as the PRISM controversy, the authors identify limits of state and third party interference with individual human rights of Internet users. Analysis is based on existing human rights standards, as enshrined within international law including the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, European Convention on Human Rights and recommendations from the Human Rights Council. The definition of human rights, perceived as freedoms and liberties guaranteed to every human being by international legal consensus will be presented based on the rich body on international law.

Reports of cyber criminals, “hacktivists” and nation-states accessing sensitive information and disrupting services in both the public and private domains have risen steadily, heightening concerns over the adequacy of cybersecurity measures. Cybersecurity related concerns range from spearfishing attempts and spam, to malware, to illegal or illicit activity on the dark net. More and more cases of successful cyber-attacks are being reported. Financial information, medical records, any and all personal data maintained on computer systems by individuals or by organizations large and small are vulnerable. Mobile, wireless technology presents new opportunities for cyber-attacks. As more devices communicate with one another, from security systems to thermostats, the “Internet of Things” presents a growing target. Social media sites and advertisements also present opportunities for cybersecurity breaches.

If you think computer security has improved in recent years, The Myths of Security will shake you out of your complacency. Longtime security professional John Viega, formerly Chief Security Architect at McAfee, reports on the sorry state of the industry, and offers concrete suggestions for professionals and individuals confronting the issue.

Why is security so bad? With many more people online than just a few years ago, there are more attackers — and they're truly motivated. Attacks are sophisticated, subtle, and harder to detect than ever. But, as Viega notes, few people take the time to understand the situation and protect themselves accordingly. This book tells you:

Would You Like to Learn Exactly What It Means to be a Hacker? – NOW INCLUDES FREE GIFTS! (see below for details)
Have you always secretly admired how tech savvy hackers are?
Does the word “hacker” make you think of the cool kids who don’t obey society’s rules?
Or does the idea of someone hacking your system and stealing your data make you break out into a cold sweat?
Do you want to understand how hacking works for once and for all?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this book will provide you with the answers you've been looking for!
What might come as a surprise to you is that hacking does not need to mean having mad computer skills. You need to know some basics, naturally, but hacking a computer system is a lot simpler than you might think. And there are a lot of software and tools out there that can help you grow from a hacking novice to a hacking expert in a very short period of time.
The truth is that no system is ever truly 100% safe. Most systems have coding errors that make them more vulnerable to attack simply for the reason that programmers have to rush to get the latest apps, etc. to market before anyone else does. It is only when there is a glitch or when the system is actually hacked that these errors are even found. And, if the hacker wants to maintain access to the system, they will work at hiding these vulnerabilities from everyone else so they might never come to light.
And passwords are not the ultimate answer either. Even the strongest passwords can be cracked if you have the right software and enough time.
If you want to learn how to beat a hacker at their own game, you need to start thinking as they do.
And what about if you are more interested in the other side of the coin? Becoming the hacker and avoiding detection? Well, this book looks at things from both sides of the equation. You need to learn how to be a hacker yourself if you really want to be effective at beating other hackers. How you use the information provided is up to you at the end of the day.
It can be a rollercoaster that will sometimes have you wondering if you have the stuff to make it. But I can promise you one thing. Whether you are the hacker or are working to prevent a system being hacked, you are guaranteed an interesting ride.
When hacking a system depends on buying yourself enough time to allow the password cracker to do its work, or when it means outsmarting someone on the other end of the line, it can be a real adrenaline rush.
Being a successful hacker is about using the right tools for the right job and, ultimately, being the smartest person in that battle. Do you have what it takes? Why not read on and see?

How Hacking Works
Hacking Networks and Computer Systems
Information Gathering
Using the Data You Gathered
