Handbook on Securing Cyber-Physical Critical Infrastructure

Handbook on Securing Cyber-Physical Critical InfrastructureThe worldwide reach of the Internet allows malicious cyber criminals to coordinate and launch attacks on both cyber and cyber-physical infrastructure from anywhere in the world. This purpose of this handbook is to introduce the theoretical foundations and practical solution techniques for securing critical cyber and physical infrastructures as well as their underlying computing and communication architectures and systems. Examples of such infrastructures include utility networks (e.g., electrical power grids), ground transportation systems (automotives, roads, bridges and tunnels), airports and air traffic control systems, wired and wireless communication and sensor networks, systems for storing and distributing water and food supplies, medical and healthcare delivery systems, as well as financial, banking and commercial transaction assets. The handbook focus mostly on the scientific foundations and engineering techniques – while also addressing the proper integration of policies and access control mechanisms, for example, how human-developed policies can be properly enforced by an automated system.

*Addresses the technical challenges facing design of secure infrastructures by providing examples of problems and solutions from a wide variety of internal and external attack scenarios

*Includes contributions from leading researchers and practitioners in relevant application areas such as smart power grid, intelligent transportation systems, healthcare industry and so on.

*Loaded with examples of real world problems and pathways to solutions utilizing specific tools and techniques described in detail throughout

Techno Security’s Guide to Securing SCADA: Protecting Critical Infrastructure

Techno Security's Guide to Securing SCADA: A Comprehensive Handbook On Protecting The Critical InfrastructureAround the world, SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) systems and other real-time process control networks run mission-critical infrastructure–everything from the power grid to water treatment, chemical manufacturing to transportation. These networks are at increasing risk due to the move from proprietary systems to more standard platforms and protocols and the interconnection to other networks. Because there has been limited attention paid to security, these systems are seen as largely unsecured and very vulnerable to attack.

This book addresses currently undocumented security issues affecting SCADA systems and overall critical infrastructure protection. The respective co-authors are among the leading experts in the world capable of addressing these related-but-independent concerns of SCADA security. Headline-making threats and countermeasures like malware, sidejacking, biometric applications, emergency communications, security awareness llanning, personnel & workplace preparedness and bomb threat planning will be addressed in detail in this one of a kind book-of-books dealing with the threats to critical infrastructure protection. They collectivly have over a century of expertise in their respective fields of infrastructure protection. Included among the contributing authors are Paul Henry, VP of Technology Evangelism, Secure Computing, Chet Hosmer, CEO and Chief Scientist at Wetstone Technologies, Phil Drake, Telecommunications Director, The Charlotte Observer, Patrice Bourgeois, Tenable Network Security, Sean Lowther, President, Stealth Awareness and Jim Windle, Bomb Squad Commander, CMPD.

* Internationally known experts provide a detailed discussion of the complexities of SCADA security and its impact on critical infrastructure
* Highly technical chapters on the latest vulnerabilities to SCADA and critical infrastructure and countermeasures
* Bonus chapters on security awareness training, bomb threat planning, emergency communications, employee safety and much more
* Companion Website featuring video interviews with subject matter experts offer a “sit-down” with the leaders in the field

The Chinese Information War: Espionage, Cyberwar, Communications Control and Related Threats to United States Interests

This book is about a cyberwar with China. This new type of war, says the author, is China's effort at bending another country's will to its own. It is clever, broadly applied, successful, and aimed directly at the United States. This war is neither conventional nor accidental. The U.S. military is at a disadvantage because it is part of a system of government that is democratic, decentralized and mostly separated from American businesses. This system has served the country well but is not a path that China sees as worth following. This book is not a "how to" book of strategies that might be developed to fight a cyberwar. It is a way to grasp and categorize what the Chinese are already doing, to make sense of it. Until the U.S. sees itself as in a war, it cannot begin to effectively prosecute it.

Develop better cybersecurity by taking a wider view of the threats

Many books on cybersecurity focus on technical responses to the cybercriminal, the cyberactivist and the state-sponsored hacker. As important as this is, relatively inexperienced hackers can still break into systems that have not taken account of human fallibility and other known vulnerabilities.
