The New State of the Art in Information Security: Now Covers Cloud Computing, the Internet of Things, and Cyberwarfare Students and IT and security professionals have long relied on Security in Computing as the definitive guide to computer security attacks and countermeasures. Now, the authors have thoroughly updated this classic to reflect today’s newest technologies, attacks, standards, and trends. Security in Computing, Fifth Edition, offers complete, timely coverage of all aspects of computer security, including users, software, devices, operating systems, networks, and data. Reflecting rapidly evolving attacks, countermeasures, and computing environments, this new edition introduces best practices for authenticating users, preventing malicious code execution, using encryption, protecting privacy, implementing firewalls, detecting intrusions, and more. More than two hundred end-of-chapter exercises help the student to solidify lessons learned in each chapter. Combining breadth, depth, and exceptional clarity, this comprehensive guide builds carefully from simple to complex topics, so you always understand all you need to know before you move forward. You’ll start by mastering the field’s basic terms, principles, and concepts. Next, you’ll apply these basics in diverse situations and environments, learning to ”think like an attacker” and identify exploitable weaknesses. Then you will switch to defense, selecting the best available solutions and countermeasures. Finally, you’ll go beyond technology to understand crucial management issues in protecting infrastructure and data. New coverage includes A full chapter on securing cloud environments and managing their unique risks Extensive new coverage of security issues associated with user—web interaction New risks and techniques for safeguarding the Internet of Things A new primer on threats to privacy and how to guard it An assessment of computers and cyberwarfare–recent attacks and emerging risks Security flaws and risks associated with electronic voting systems
The urgency for a global standard of excellence for those who protect the networked world has never been greater. (ISC)2 created the information security industry’s first and only CBK®, a global compendium of information security topics. Continually updated to incorporate rapidly changing technologies and threats, the CBK continues to serve as the basis for (ISC)2’s education and certification programs. Unique and exceptionally thorough, the Official (ISC)2® Guide to the CISSP®CBK®provides a better understanding of the CISSP CBK — a collection of topics relevant to information security professionals around the world. Although the book still contains the ten domains of the CISSP, some of the domain titles have been revised to reflect evolving terminology and changing emphasis in the security professional’s day-to-day environment. The ten domains include information security and risk management, access control, cryptography, physical (environmental) security, security architecture and design, business continuity (BCP) and disaster recovery planning (DRP), telecommunications and network security, application security, operations security, legal, regulations, and compliance and investigations. Endorsed by the (ISC)2, this valuable resource follows the newly revised CISSP CBK, providing reliable, current, and thorough information. Moreover, the Official (ISC)2® Guide to the CISSP® CBK® helps information security professionals gain awareness of the requirements of their profession and acquire knowledge validated by the CISSP certification. The book is packaged with a CD that is an invaluable tool for those seeking certification. It includes sample exams that simulate the actual exam, providing the same number and types of questions with the same allotment of time allowed. It even grades the exam, provides correct answers, and identifies areas where more study is needed.
The Official (ISC)2® Guide to the CISSP®-ISSEP® CBK® provides an inclusive analysis of all of the topics covered on the newly created CISSP-ISSEP Common Body of Knowledge. The first fully comprehensive guide to the CISSP-ISSEP CBK, this book promotes understanding of the four ISSEP domains: Information Systems Security Engineering (ISSE); Certification and Accreditation; Technical Management; and an Introduction to United States Government Information Assurance Regulations. This volume explains ISSE by comparing it to a traditional Systems Engineering model, enabling you to see the correlation of how security fits into the design and development process for information systems. It also details key points of more than 50 U.S. government policies and procedures that need to be understood in order to understand the CBK and protect U.S. government information. About the Author Susan Hansche, CISSP-ISSEP is the training director for information assurance at Nortel PEC Solutions in Fairfax, Virginia. She has more than 15 years of experience in the field and since 1998 has served as the contractor program manager of the information assurance training program for the U.S. Department of State.
The Internet of Things describes a world in which smart technologies enable objects with a network to communicate with each other and interface with humans effortlessly. This connected world of convenience and technology does not come without its drawbacks, as interconnectivity implies hackability. Security Solutions for Hyperconnectivity and the Internet of Things offers insights from cutting-edge research about the strategies and techniques that can be implemented to protect against cyber-attacks. Calling for revolutionary protection strategies to reassess security, this book is an essential resource for programmers, engineers, business professionals, researchers, and advanced students in relevant fields.
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide) Fifth Edition reflects the collaboration and knowledge of working project managers and provides the fundamentals of project management as they apply to a wide range of projects. This internationally recognized standard gives project managers the essential tools to practice project management and deliver organizational results. A 10th Knowledge Area has been added; Project Stakeholder Management expands upon the importance of appropriately engaging project stakeholders in key decisions and activities. Project data information and information flow have been redefined to bring greater consistency and be more aligned with the Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom (DIKW) model used in the field of Knowledge Management. Four new planning processes have been added: Plan Scope Management, Plan Schedule Management, Plan Cost Management and Plan Stakeholder Management: These were created to reinforce the concept that eac

This book introduces context-aware computing, providing definitions, categories, characteristics, and context awareness itself and discussing its applications with a particular focus on smart learning environments. It also examines the elements of a context-aware system, including acquisition, modelling, reasoning, and distribution of context. It also reviews applications of context-aware computing – both past and present – to offer readers the knowledge needed to critically analyse how context awareness can be put to use. It is particularly to those new to the subject area who are interested in learning how to develop context-aware computing-oriented applications, as well as postgraduates and researchers in computer engineering, communications engineering related areas of information technology (IT). Further it provides practical know-how for professionals working in IT support and technology, consultants and business decision-makers and those working in the medical, human, and social sciences.
