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.

Cyber Defense and Situational Awareness (Advances in Information Security)

This book is the first publication to give a comprehensive, structured treatment to the important topic of situational awareness in cyber defense. It presents the subject in a logical, consistent, continuous discourse, covering key topics such as formation of cyber situational awareness, visualization and human factors, automated learning and inference, use of ontologies and metrics, predicting and assessing impact of cyber attacks, and achieving resilience of cyber and physical mission. Chapters include case studies, recent research results and practical insights described specifically for this book. Situational awareness is exceptionally prominent in the field of cyber defense. It involves science, technology and practice of perception, comprehension and projection of events and entities in cyber space. Chapters discuss the difficulties of achieving cyber situational awareness – along with approaches to overcoming the difficulties – in the relatively young field of cyber defense where key phenomena are so unlike the more conventional physical world. Cyber Defense and Situational Awareness is designed as a reference for practitioners of cyber security and developers of technology solutions for cyber defenders. Advanced-level students and researchers focused on security of computer networks will also find this book a valuable resource.

As global society becomes more and more dependent, politically and economically, on the flow of information, the power of those who can disrupt and manipulate that flow also increases. In Hacktivism and Cyberwars Tim Jordan and Paul Taylor provide a detailed history of hacktivism's evolution from early hacking culture to its present day status as the radical face of online politics. They describe the ways in which hacktivism has re-appropriated hacking techniques to create an innovative new form of political protest. A full explanation is given of the different strands of hacktivism and the 'cyberwars' it has created, ranging from such avant garde groups as the Electronic Disturbance Theatre to more virtually focused groups labelled 'The Digitally Correct'. The full social and historical context of hacktivism is portrayed to take into account its position in terms of new social movements, direct action and its contribution to the globalization debate.

This book provides an important corrective flip-side to mainstream accounts of E-commerce and broadens the conceptualization of the internet to take into full account the other side of the digital divide.

Amazon #1 Hot New Release, Computer Viruses

In this study two distributed denial of service attacks were captured and the characteristics of the attacks were used to detect botnets by identifying egressing distributed denial of service attack packets at the source of the attack. A sample Dark DDoSer botnet was constructed and used to launch a distributed denial of service attack, and a Black Energy DDoS attack was captured. The characteristics of the distributed denial of service attacks were used as the independent variables in a quasi-experiment where network traffic was monitored with Snort to detect DDoS packets. The dependent variable for the experiment was false positive alerts for the DDoS packets. The findings showed that the characteristics of a distributed denial of service attack can be used to pro-actively detect botnets through egress monitoring.
