Cyberwarfare/Cyberattacks, the new global threat to peace and stability.
Cyber-Physical Attacks: A Growing Invisible Threat presents the growing list of harmful uses of computers and their ability to disable cameras, turn off a building’s lights, make a car veer off the road, or a drone land in enemy hands. In essence, it details the ways cyber-physical attacks are replacing physical attacks in crime, warfare, and terrorism.
The book explores how attacks using computers affect the physical world in ways that were previously only possible through physical means. Perpetrators can now cause damage without the same risk, and without the political, social, or moral outrage that would follow a more overt physical attack.

The book delves into specific details and methodology of how to perform secuity assessments against the SCADA and Industrial control systems. The goal of this book is to provide a roadmap to the security assessors such as security analysts, pentesters, security architects, etc. and use the existing techniques that they are aware about and apply them to perform security asessments against the SCADA world. The book shows that the same techniques used to assess IT environments can be used for assessing the efficacy of defenses that protect the ICS/SCADA systems as well.
Cyber-crime increasingly impacts both the online and offline world, and targeted attacks play a significant role in disrupting services in both. Targeted attacks are those that are aimed at a particular individual, group, or type of site or service. Unlike worms and viruses that usually attack indiscriminately, targeted attacks involve intelligence-gathering and planning to a degree that drastically changes its profile.
Individuals, corporations, and even governments are facing new threats from targeted attacks. Targeted Cyber Attacks examines real-world examples of directed attacks and provides insight into what techniques and resources are used to stage these attacks so that you can counter them more effectively.
