Thus the need for stringent and comprehensive methods for combating cyber crime and terror have never before been needed more than now. CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime is a straightforward and pragmatic guide. It details how best practices and standards can be used to combat cyber criminals and terrorists. This book is written by Dr. Julie Mehan who is a Principal Analyst for a strategic consulting firm in the State of Virginia. She has been a Government Service employee, a strategic consultant, and an entrepreneur. Until November 2007, she was the co-founder of a small woman-owned company focusing on secure, assured software modernization and security services. She led business operations, as well as the information technology governance and information assurance-related services, including certification and accreditation, systems security engineering process improvement, and information assurance strategic planning and programme management. During previous years, Dr Mehan delivered information assurance and security-related privacy services to senior department of defense, federal government, and commercial clients working in Italy, Australia, Canada, Belgium, and the United States.

Corporate Cyberwar

Corporate CyberwarCorporate Cyberwar chronicles the daily battle between technical criminals and law enforcement. As new and advanced ways to cheat and financially ruin companies are discovered, many authorities not only have to figure out ways to stop it, but they also have to create new laws in order to prosecute the perpetrators. This book addresses how businesses/corporations can protect themselves against this increasingly vicious attack. To help convey the importance of protection and awareness, Cyberwar explores two very important cases, WikiLeaks and Stuxnet. Businesses/corporations are given a better understanding of such similar attacks in the future. Corporate Cyberwar does not only focus on problems, it also provides solutions. There is a point by point explanation of how Crimeware, Bot Networks and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) take place, which helps businesses/corporations understand exactly what needs to be done in order to prevent the attacks. Cyberwar is not only for those with a moderate understanding of technology, it is also for those with limited understanding of this threat and its devastating effects.
