The Internet has given rise to new opportunities for the public sector to improve efficiency and better serve constituents in the form of e-government. But with a rapidly growing user base globally and an increasing reliance on the Internet, digital tools are also exposing the public sector to new risks.
An accessible primer, Cybersecurity: Public Sector Threats and Responses focuses on the convergence of globalization, connectivity, and the migration of public sector functions online. It identifies the challenges you need to be aware of and examines emerging trends and strategies from around the world. Offering practical guidance for addressing contemporary risks, the book is organized into three sections:
- Global Trends—considers international e-government trends, includes case studies of common cyber threats and presents efforts of the premier global institution in the field
- National and Local Policy Approaches—examines the current policy environment in the United States and Europe and illustrates challenges at all levels of government
- Practical Considerations—explains how to prepare for cyber attacks, including an overview of relevant U.S. Federal cyber incident response policies, an organizational framework for assessing risk, and emerging trends

With the rapid advancement of information discovery techniques, machine learning and data mining continue to play a significant role in cybersecurity. Although several conferences, workshops, and journals focus on the fragmented research topics in this area, there has been no single interdisciplinary resource on past and current works and possible paths for future research in this area. This book fills this need.
From basic concepts in machine learning and data mining to advanced problems in the machine learning domain, Data Mining and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity provides a unified reference for specific machine learning solutions to cybersecurity problems. It supplies a foundation in cybersecurity fundamentals and surveys contemporary challenges—detailing cutting-edge machine learning and data mining techniques.
- Unveils cutting-edge techniques for detecting new attacks
- Contains in-depth discussions of machine learning solutions to detection problems
- Categorizes methods for detecting, scanning, and profiling intrusions and anomalies
- Surveys contemporary cybersecurity problems and unveils state-of-the-art machine learning and data mining solutions
- Details privacy-preserving data mining methods
This interdisciplinary resource includes technique review tables that allow for speedy access to common cybersecurity problems and associated data mining methods. Numerous illustrative figures help readers visualize the workflow of complex techniques and more than forty case studies provide a clear understanding of the design and application of data mining and machine learning techniques in cybersecurity.

Even though the main argument is that more times than not, the government and its various departments, are "out to get" the citizenry – are outlandish to say the least and the motto, creed, and vision that these men and women live by means absolutely nothing to them or their families; which is, against common sense and the profession that has become a second human nature in the first place. One starts out on the path to development or, what a Renaissance man/woman would call “becoming,” from an infancy and matures; this is what truly needs to be realized instead of sparse new reports that drive fear instead of the attitudes of those working to change our world for the better. It is the opinion of this report that it is the Intelligence Community's (IC) position, aspiration, and life's work to be effective in detouring, preventing, and eliminating these threats to our way of life. because of the following types of threats to our cybersecurity are clear and present and are vulnerabilities that are and will be continually addressed by the (IC) for now and all time:
Intellectual Property theft
Corporate and Nation State threats
and I will present examples of such threats to make one aware that speculation and cooperation are two aspects that need to be addressed when expecting problems of this nature; and, to be addressed by those who address them for a living; and, who care immensely for what they do and those they serve. We use a Linear equation of Vector Addition to represent what your risks are to cyber threats and hacks and present examples of some executive dangers inherent in our Information based business world.
