CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime

Dublin Core

Title

CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime

Description

Main Argument: This book mainly addresses cybersecurity from the perspective of the private sector. The goal is to expose people to best industry practices and standards for how to address cybercrime. An important feature of corporate cybersecurity is employee-level understanding of how their activities affect the security of their employer's information infrastructure. This book also surveys the legislation that pertains to cybercrime with the goal of exposing readers to their potential liability to failures of the integrity of their information security systems.

Style: Accessible academic writing

Sourcing: Scholarly, policy and media articles (references located after each chapter)

Structure:  9 chapters, 2 appendices, a glossary and list of acronyms 

Context in discussion: Many cyber discussions, reports or speeches address larger national security issues. Maher’s book, however, focuses on how cybersecurity affects the private sector. United States citizens are most affected by laws and policies that impact their daily lives. Maher offers a micro-account of cybersecurity by focusing on how it applies to individuals and businesses rather than the entire nation or globe.

Context in website: Harnessing Small Businesses Innovation for National Security Cyber Needs are personal testimonies from small business owners to the Subcommittee on Terrorism, Unconventional Threats and Capabilities of the Committee on Armed Services House of Representatives. These testimonies offer a realistic, personal view of how the private sector is being affected/effecting cybersecurity.
