You may be a business person keen to understand this important subject area or an information security specialist looking to update your knowledge. 'The world has changed more in the past 10 years than in any 10 year period in human history. . . Technology is no longer a peripheral servant, it shapes our daily lives. Companies that can use technology wisely and well are booming, companies that make bad or no technology choices collapse and disappear. The cloud, smart devices and the ability to connect almost any object to the internet are an essential landscape to use but are also fraught with new risks and dangers of a magnitude never seen before.' Also featuring an alphabetical section at the back of the book to help you translate many of the main cybersecurity technical terms into plain, non-technical English.

People are checking their e-mails, surfing over the Internet, purchasing goods, playing online games, paying bills on the Internet everyday. However, while performing all these tasks, how many people think about security? Do they know the risks of being attacked, infected by malicious software? How many users are aware of that their computer may be used as zombie machines to target other victim systems? As technology is growing rapidly, newer attacks are appearing. Security is a key point to get over all these issues. In this thesis, we will make a real life scenario, using honeypots. Honeypot is a well designed system that attracts hackers into it. By luring the hacker into the system, it is possible to monitor the processes that are started and running. In other words, honeypot is a trap machine which looks like a real system in order to attract the attacker. The aim of the honeypot is analyzing, understanding, watching and tracking hacker’s behaviours in order to create more secure systems. Honeypot is also very useful for future threats to keep track of new attacks.

The Smart Grid security ecosystem is complex and multi-disciplinary, and relatively under-researched compared to the traditional information and network security disciplines. While the Smart Grid has provided increased efficiencies in monitoring power usage, directing power supplies to serve peak power needs and improving efficiency of power delivery, the Smart Grid has also opened the way for information security breaches and other types of security breaches. Potential threats range from meter manipulation to directed, high-impact attacks on critical infrastructure that could bring down regional or national power grids. It is essential that security measures are put in place to ensure that the Smart Grid does not succumb to these threats and to safeguard this critical infrastructure at all times.

Dr. Florian Skopik is one of the leading researchers in Smart Grid security, having organized and led research consortia and panel discussions in this field. Smart Grid Security will provide the first truly holistic view of leading edge Smart Grid security research. This book does not focus on vendor-specific solutions, instead providing a complete presentation of forward-looking research in all areas of Smart Grid security. The book will enable practitioners to learn about upcoming trends, scientists to share new directions in research, and government and industry decision-makers to prepare for major strategic decisions regarding implementation of Smart Grid technology.Presents the most current and leading edge research on Smart Grid security from a holistic standpoint, featuring a panel of top experts in the field.Includes coverage of risk management, operational security, and secure development of the Smart Grid.Covers key technical topics, including threat types and attack vectors, threat case studies, smart metering, smart home, e- mobility, smart buildings, DERs, demand response management, distribution grid operators, transmission grid operators, virtual power plants, resilient architectures, communications protocols and encryption, as well as physical security.
