This is the first book to present a multidisciplinary approach to cyberterrorism. It traces the threat posed by cyberterrorism today, with chapters discussing possible technological vulnerabilities, potential motivations to engage in cyberterrorism, and the challenges of distinguishing this from other cyber threats. The book also addresses the range of potential responses to this threat by exploring policy and legislative frameworks as well as a diversity of techniques for deterring or countering terrorism in cyber environments. The case studies throughout the book are global in scope and include the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

With contributions from distinguished experts with backgrounds including international relations, law, engineering, computer science, public policy and politics, Cyberterrorism: Understanding, Assessment and Response offers a cutting edge analysis of contemporary debate on, and issues surrounding, cyberterrorism. This global scope and diversity of perspectives ensure it is of great interest to academics, students, practitioners, policymakers and other stakeholders with an interest in cyber security.

Cyber Warfare explores the battlefields, participants and tools and techniques used during today's digital conflicts. The concepts discussed in this book will give those involved in information security at all levels a better idea of how cyber conflicts are carried out now, how they will change in the future and how to detect and defend against espionage, hacktivism, insider threats and non-state actors like organized criminals and terrorists. Every one of our systems is under attack from multiple vectors-our defenses must be ready all the time and our alert systems must detect the threats every time.

Provides concrete examples and real-world guidance on how to identify and defend your network against malicious attacksDives deeply into relevant technical and factual information from an insider's point of viewDetails the ethics, laws and consequences of cyber war and how computer criminal law may change as a result

In den letzten Jahren hat sich das Internet schnell zu einem massiven wirtschaftlichen Betätigungsfeld entwickelt, leider auch für illegale Unternehmungen. Das Ausnutzen von Schwachstellen in IKT-Systemen ist inzwischen ein profitables Geschäftsmodell. Das staatlich geförderte Forschungsprojekt CAIS beschäftigte sich deshalb mit der Implementierung eines Cyber Attack Information Systems auf nationaler Ebene mit dem Ziel, die Widerstandsfähigkeit der heutigen vernetzten Systeme zu stärken und ihre Verfügbarkeit und Vertrauenswürdigkeit zu erhöhen. Hauptziele dieses Projektes waren die Identifizierung der künftigen Cyber-Risiken und -Bedrohungen, die Untersuchung neuartiger Techniken zur Anomalieerkennung, die Entwicklung modularer Infrastrukturmodelle und agentenbasierter Simulationen zur Risiko- und Bedrohungsanalyse, und schließlich die Analyse und mögliche Umsetzung eines nationalen Cyber Attack Information Systems.

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security
Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief."
Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.
