Through the rise of big data and the internet of things, terrorist organizations have been freed from geographic and logistical confines and now have more power than ever before to strike the average citizen directly at home. This, coupled with the inherently asymmetrical nature of cyberwarfare, which grants great advantage to the attacker, has created an unprecedented national security risk that both governments and their citizens are woefully ill-prepared to face. Examining cyber warfare and terrorism through a critical and academic perspective can lead to a better understanding of its foundations and implications. Cyber Warfare and Terrorism: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications is an essential reference for the latest research on the utilization of online tools by terrorist organizations to communicate with and recruit potential extremists and examines effective countermeasures employed by law enforcement agencies to defend against such threats. Highlighting a range of topics such as cyber threats, digital intelligence, and counterterrorism, this multi-volume book is ideally designed for law enforcement, government officials, lawmakers, security analysts, IT specialists, software developers, intelligence and security practitioners, students, educators, and researchers.
This book explores cybersecurity research and development efforts, including ideas that deal with the growing challenge of how computing engineering can merge with neuroscience. The contributing authors, who are renowned leaders in this field, thoroughly examine new technologies that will automate security procedures and perform autonomous functions with decision making capabilities. To maximize reader insight into the range of professions dealing with increased cybersecurity issues, this book presents work performed by government, industry, and academic research institutions working at the frontier of cybersecurity and network sciences. Cybersecurity Systems for Human Cognition Augmentation is designed as a reference for practitioners or government employees working in cybersecurity. Advanced-level students or researchers focused on computer engineering or neuroscience will also find this book a useful resource.

The 11thInternational Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ICCWS 2016) is being held at Boston University, Boston, USA on the 17-18th March 2016. The Conference Chair is Dr Tanya Zlateva and the Programme Chair is Professor Virginia Greiman, both from Boston University. ICCWS is a recognised Cyber Security event on the International research conferences calendar and provides a valuable platform for individuals to present their research findings, display their work in progress and discuss conceptual and empirical advances in the area of Cyber Warfare and Cyber Security. It provides an important opportunity for researchers and managers to come together with peers to share their experiences of using the varied and expanding range of Cyberwar and Cyber Security research available to them. The keynote speakers for the conference are Daryl Haegley from the Department of Defense (DoD), who will address the topic Control Systems Networks...What's in Your Building? and Neal Ziring from the National Security Agency who will be providing some insight to the issue of Is Security Achievable? A Practical Perspective. ICCWS received 125 abstract submissions this year. After the double blind, peer review process there are 43 Academic Research Papers 8 PhD papers Research papers, 7 Masters and 1 work-in-progress papers published in these Conference Proceedings. These papers represent work from around the world, including: Australia, Canada, China, Czech Republic, District of Columbia, Finland, France, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Netherlands, Pakistan, Russian Federation, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, UK, USA.
Emerging Cyber Threats and Cognitive Vulnerabilities identifies the critical role human behavior plays in cybersecurity and provides insights into how human decision-making can help address rising volumes of cyberthreats. The book examines the role of psychology in cybersecurity by addressing each actor involved in the process: hackers, targets, cybersecurity practitioners and the wider social context in which these groups operate. It applies psychological factors such as motivations, group processes and decision-making heuristics that may lead individuals to underestimate risk. The goal of this understanding is to more quickly identify threat and create early education and prevention strategies. This book covers a variety of topics and addresses different challenges in response to changes in the ways in to study various areas of decision-making, behavior, artificial intelligence, and human interaction in relation to cybersecurity. Explains psychological factors inherent in machine learning and artificial intelligence Discusses the social psychology of online radicalism and terrorist recruitment Examines the motivation and decision-making of hackers and "hacktivists" Investigates the use of personality psychology to extract secure information from individuals
The prominence and growing dependency on information communication technologies in nearly every aspect of life has opened the door to threats in cyberspace. Criminal elements inside and outside organizations gain access to information that can cause financial and reputational damage. Criminals also target individuals daily with personal devices like smartphones and home security systems who are often unaware of the dangers and the privacy threats around them. The Handbook of Research on Information and Cyber Security in the Fourth Industrial Revolution is a critical scholarly resource that creates awareness of the severity of cyber information threats on personal, business, governmental, and societal levels. The book explores topics such as social engineering in information security, threats to cloud computing, and cybersecurity resilience during the time of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. As a source that builds on available literature and expertise in the field of information technology and security, this publication proves useful for academicians, educationalists, policy makers, government officials, students, researchers, and business leaders and managers.

The internet is established in most households worldwide and used for entertainment purposes, shopping, social networking, business activities, banking, telemedicine, and more. As more individuals and businesses use this essential tool to connect with each other and consumers, more private data is exposed to criminals ready to exploit it for their gain. Thus, it is essential to continue discussions involving policies that regulate and monitor these activities, and anticipate new laws that should be implemented in order to protect users. Cyber Law, Privacy, and Security: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications examines current internet and data protection laws and their impact on user experience and cybercrime, and explores the need for further policies that protect user identities, data, and privacy. It also offers the latest methodologies and applications in the areas of digital security and threats. Highlighting a range of topics such as online privacy and security, hacking, and online threat protection, this multi-volume book is ideally designed for IT specialists, administrators, policymakers, researchers, academicians, and upper-level students.
This book focuses on the core areas of computing and their applications in the real world. Presenting papers from the Computing Conference 2020 covers a diverse range of research areas, describing various detailed techniques that have been developed and implemented. The Computing Conference 2020, which provided a venue for academic and industry practitioners to share new ideas and development experiences, attracted a total of 514 submissions from pioneering academic researchers, scientists, industrial engineers and students from around the globe. Following a double-blind, peer-review process, 160 papers (including 15 poster papers) were selected to be included in these proceedings. Featuring state-of-the-art intelligent methods and techniques for solving real-world problems, the book is a valuable resource and will inspire further research and technological improvements in this important area.
