In the Digital Age of the twenty-first century, the question is not if you will be targeted, but when. For an enterprise to be fully prepared for the immanent attack, it must be actively monitoring networks, taking proactive steps to understand and contain attacks, enabling continued operation during an incident, and have a full recovery plan already in place. Are you prepared? If not, where does one begin?Cybersecurity expert Ray Rothrock has provided for businesses large and small a must-have resource that highlights the tactics used by today’s hackers, vulnerabilities lurking in networks, and strategies not just for surviving attacks, but actually thriving while under assault. Businesses and individuals will understand better the threats they face, be able to identify and address weaknesses, and respond to exploits swiftly and effectively.From data theft to downed servers, from malware to human error, cyber events can be triggered anytime from anywhere around the globe. Digital Resilience provides the resilience-building strategies your business needs to prevail–no matter what strikes.

Many people think of the Smart Grid as a power distribution group built on advanced smart metering-but that's just one aspect of a much larger and more complex system. The "Smart Grid" requires new technologies throughout energy generation, transmission and distribution, and even the homes and businesses being served by the grid. This also represents new information paths between these new systems and services, all of which represents risk, requiring a more thorough approach to where and how cyber security controls are implemented.
This insight provides a detailed architecture of the entire Smart Grid, with recommended cyber security measures for everything from the supply chain to the consumer.Discover the potential of the Smart GridLearn in depth about its systemsSee its vulnerabilities and how best to protect it
Although the use of data mining for security and malware detection is quickly on the rise, most books on the subject provide high-level theoretical discussions to the near exclusion of the practical aspects. Breaking the mold, Data Mining Tools for Malware Detection provides a step-by-step breakdown of how to develop data mining tools for malware detection. Integrating theory with practical techniques and experimental results, it focuses on malware detection applications for email worms, malicious code, remote exploits, and botnets.
The authors describe the systems they have designed and developed: email worm detection using data mining, a scalable multi-level feature extraction technique to detect malicious executables, detecting remote exploits using data mining, and flow-based identification of botnet traffic by mining multiple log files. For each of these tools, they detail the system architecture, algorithms, performance results, and limitations.
