Das Thema Cybersecurity ist so aktuell wie nie, denn im Cyberspace lassen sich nur schwer Grenzen in Bezug auf den Zugang zu Informationen, Daten und Redefreiheit setzen. Kriminelle nutzen die Lücken oft zu ihrem Vorteil aus. Die Vielzahl der IT-Systeme, ihre unterschiedlichen Nutzungsarten und ihre Innovations- und Lebenszyklen haben zu hohen Sicherheitsrisiken für Unternehmen und staatliche Einrichtungen geführt. Diese Risiken werden sich auch langfristig nicht so einfach aus der Welt schaffen lassen. Daher müssen Institutionen Strategien und Lösungen zu ihrem Selbstschutz entwickeln. Dieses Buch beschreibt Lösungsansätze und Best Practices aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, die nachweislich zu einer höheren Resilienz gegenüber Cyberangriffen führen. Weltweit renommierte IT-Sicherheitsexperten berichten in 40 Beiträgen, wie sich staatliche Institutionen, unter anderem das Militär (Cyber Defence), Behörden, internationale Organisationen und Unternehmen besser gegen Cyberangriffe schützen und nachhaltige Schutzstrategien entwickeln können. Die Autoren widmen sich den Gründen und Zielen, die ihren jeweiligen Strategien zugrunde liegen, sie berichten, wie Unternehmen auf konkrete Cyberattacken reagiert haben und wie einzelne staatliche Institutionen angesichts nationaler Cyberstrategien agieren. In weiteren Kapiteln zeigen Wissenschaftler auf, was bei der Abwehr von Cyber-Attacken bereits heute möglich ist, welche Entwicklungen in Arbeit sind und wie diese in Zukunft eingesetzt werden können, um die Cyber-Sicherheit zu erhöhen. Im letzten Kapitel berichten Hersteller, Anwenderunternehmen und Dienstleister welche Best Practices sie in ihren Unternehmen eingeführt haben und wie andere Unternehmen ihrem Beispiel folgen können. Das Buch richtet sich an IT-Verantwortliche und -Sicherheitsbeauftragte in Unternehmen und anderen Organisationen, aber auch an Studierende in den verschiedenen IT-Studiengängen.

Cyber Security Innovation for the Digital Economy considers possible solutions to the relatively new scientific-technical problem of developing innovative solutions in the field of cyber security for the Digital Economy. The solutions proposed are based on the results of exploratory studies conducted by the author in the areas of Big Data acquisition, cognitive information technologies (cogno-technologies), new methods of analytical verification of digital ecosystems on the basis of similarity invariants and dimensions, and "computational cognitivism," involving a number of existing models and methods. In practice, this successfully allowed the creation of new entities - the required safe and trusted digital ecosystems - on the basis of the development of digital and cyber security technologies, and the resulting changes in their behavioral preferences. Here, the ecosystem is understood as a certain system of organizations, created around a certain Technological Platform that use its services to make the best offers to customers and access to them to meet the ultimate needs of clients - legal entities and individuals. The basis of such ecosystems is a certain technological platform, created on advanced innovative developments, including the open interfaces and code, machine learning, cloud technologies, Big Data collection and processing, artificial intelligence technologies, etc. The mentioned Technological Platform allows creating the best offer for the client both from own goods and services and from the offers of external service providers in real time. This book contains four chapters devoted to the following subjects: Relevance of the given scientific-technical problems in the cybersecurity of Digital EconomyDetermination of the limiting capabilitiesPossible scientific and technical solutionsOrganization of perspective research studies in the area of Digital Economy cyber security in Russia.

With the advent of big data technology, organisations worldwide are creating data exceeding terabytes in size. Due to the variety of data that it encompasses, big data always entails a number of challenges related to its volume, complexity and vulnerability. The need to manage cyber risks across an enterprise-inclusive of IT operations-is a growing concern as massive data breaches make news on an alarmingly frequent basis. The internet too has grown enormously over the past few years, consequently increasing the risk of many untoward cyber incidents that can cause irreparable loss to a corporate organisation. With a robust cyber risk management system now a necessary business requirement, organisations need to assess the effectiveness of their current systems in response to a dynamic and fast-moving threat landscape. This book goes beyond a mere response to cybercrime and addresses the entire crisis-management cycle. The authors have created a primer for corporate houses and individuals alike on how they should deal with cyber incidences and develop strategies on tackling such incidences.
Digitalization has taken a predominant role in the Netherlands. The Netherlands considers itself one of the leading ICT countries, promotes itself as ‘a safe place to do business’ and aspires to be the digital gateway of Europe. This report will first estimate the current and prospective size of the Dutch digital economy and the ICT sector, and later analyze how much the latter contributes to the national economy. Next, we provide a holistic overview of the current level of public and private investments in cybersecurity, followed by an analysis estimating the Dutch cybersecurity market by comparing different studies. Taking into account the 1,5% loss of its national GDP to cybercrime, which correlates well to the €10bn value loss through cyber risk in the Netherlands, the Dutch private sector, and especially the government, can invest more in cybersecurity to reduce the impact and damage cybercrime and –risks. In addition, there is a drastic increase in demand anticipated for cybersecurity experts and IoT developers. As a result, when this is solved, one might conclude that the investments in cybersecurity will exceed the 10% norm. This research is directed to the National Cyber Testbed Initiative of The Hague Security Delta (December 2016).
