9780123918550: Cyber Attacks: Protecting National Infrastructure, STUDENT EDITION

Cyber Attacks, Student Edition, offers a technical, architectural, and management approach to solving the problems of protecting national infrastructure. This approach includes controversial themes such as the deliberate use of deception to trap intruders. This volume thus serves as an attractive framework for a new national strategy for cyber security. A specific set of criteria requirements allows any organization, such as a government agency, to integrate the principles into their local environment.

In this edition, each principle is presented as a separate security strategy and illustrated with compelling examples. The book adds 50-75 pages of new material aimed specifically at enhancing the student experience and making it more attractive for instructors teaching courses such as cyber security, information security, digital security, national security, intelligence studies, technology and infrastructure protection. It now also features case studies illustrating actual implementation scenarios of the principles and requirements discussed in the text, along with a host of new pedagogical elements, including chapter outlines, chapter summaries, learning checklists, and a 2-color interior. Furthermore, a new and complete ancillary package includes test bank, lesson plans, PowerPoint slides, case study questions, and more.

This text is intended for security practitioners and military personnel as well as for students wishing to become security engineers, network operators, software designers, technology managers, application developers, etc.

  • Provides case studies focusing on cyber security challenges and solutions to display how theory, research, and methods, apply to real-life challenges
  • Utilizes, end-of-chapter case problems that take chapter content and relate it to real security situations and issues
  • Includes instructor slides for each chapter as well as an instructor’s manual with sample syllabi and test bank

From the Back Cover:

No nation has a coherent technical and architectural strategy for preventing cyber attacks from crippling essential critical infrastructure services. This book initiates a dialogue among the general technical community around proper methods for reducing national risk. It also serves as an attractive frameowrk for a new stratgy for cyber security, something that several US administrations have failed in attempting to create.

Amoroso offers a technical, architectural, and managerial solution to the problem of protecting national infrastructure for security engineers, network operators, software designers, technology managers, and applicatio ndevelopers. Each prinicples is presented as a separate security strategy, along with compelling examples that demonstrate use of the principle. A specific set of criteria requirements allows organizations to integrate the principles into their local environment.

* Includes lecture slides for each chapter and an accompanying instructor’s manual with chapter-by-chapter case problems, student study questions, test bank, solutions manual
