NOW, WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY, EVERYBODY KNOWS EVERYTHING.
EVERYWHERE, ANYTIME; WE ARE EXPOSED!
The enemy has the same talent, hardware and software. There is an equalization of resources and humans knowledge. What I was describing only a few years ago as a totally asymmetric war (cyber wars), now seems more symmetrical than ever.
The power of reach of Social Media is an equalizer of the today society. Social Media is more influential with the young, teenagers and young adults.
“The world, as body of states and civilized laws, lacks a uniform code of rules of how to responding to cyber-attacks, cyber war, info war, cyber espionage and cybercrimes: in times of peace and especially in times of war. DO YOU HAVE AN ADECUATE RESPONSE/POLICY IN KIND? | Hedi Enghelberg
“Qui desiderat pacem praeparet bellum”.
Let him who desires peace prepare for war.

The world of communication has been making rapid strides. Information Technology has made this world smaller and more accessible. Perhaps the biggest and the most signifi cant change in IT is the advent of the Internet—with it, transferring information, even across continents and oceans, has become easy and instantaneous. Given the changing scenario, security of information has become an important and inseparable aspect of communication. When the message is received only by the intended recipient, the information is said to have been secure. But, if the information passes through the hands of other people before reaching the intended recipient, the security of the information is considered to have been breached. Information security is essential from both, the online and offl ine points-of-view. Information may be in the form of documents and CDs, stored in databases, or in hard disks. This book deals with the concept of information security, the various measures and counter-measures which one needs to take to make the information systems secure and the laws which govern the concept. Structure of the Book This book is divided into 8 chapters, sequenced to give a better understanding of the concepts. Each chapter contains Learning Objectives, Summary, and Solved and Unsolved Questions to aid comprehension of the concepts. The Glossary at the end of the book adds value to the learning. The last two chapters dealing with Cyber Security and Cyber Laws are accompanied by an appendix each. Important topics and concepts have been covered in great detail in the book—including, but not limited to—access control measures, threats, physical security, intrusion detection, cyber security and cyber crime. The 8 chapters together cover the entire syllabus of GBTU’s Information Security and Cyber Laws paper of the BTech course, making the book a student’s ideal companion. I hope that the readers are benefi ted from my effort in bringing out this book. I sincerely thank Vikas Publishing House for their help in giving the book its fi nal shape. Comments and suggestions from the readers are welcome.

A double is haunting the world–the double of abstraction, the virtual reality of information, programming or poetry, math or music, curves or colorings upon which the fortunes of states and armies, companies and communities now depend. The bold aim of this book is to make manifest the origins, purpose, and interests of the emerging class responsible for making this new world–for producing the new concepts, new perceptions, and new sensations out of the stuff of raw data.

A Hacker Manifesto deftly defines the fraught territory between the ever more strident demands by drug and media companies for protection of their patents and copyrights and the pervasive popular culture of file sharing and pirating. This vexed ground, the realm of so-called "intellectual property," gives rise to a whole new kind of class conflict, one that pits the creators of information–the hacker class of researchers and authors, artists and biologists, chemists and musicians, philosophers and programmers–against a possessing class who would monopolize what the hacker produces.

Dissecting the Hack: The V3rb0t3n Network ventures further into cutting-edge techniques and methods than its predecessor, Dissecting the Hack: The F0rb1dd3n Network. It forgoes the basics and delves straight into the action, as our heroes are chased around the world in a global race against the clock. The danger they face will forever reshape their lives and the price they pay for their actions will not only affect themselves, but could possibly shake the foundations of an entire nation.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part, entitled "The V3rb0t3n Network," continues the fictional story of Bob and Leon, two hackers caught up in an adventure in which they learn the deadly consequence of digital actions. The second part, "Security Threats Are Real" (STAR), focuses on these real-world lessons and advanced techniques, as used by characters in the story. This gives the reader not only textbook knowledge, but real-world context around how cyber-attacks may manifest.

In essence, it details the ways cyber-physical attacks are replacing physical attacks in crime, warfare, and terrorism.
The book explores how attacks using computers affect the physical world in ways that were previously only possible through physical means. Perpetrators can now cause damage without the same risk, and without the political, social, or moral outrage that would follow a more overt physical attack.

The book provides an accessible introduction to the variety of cyber-physical attacks that have already been employed or are likely to be employed in the near future.
