Cybersecurity Policies and Strategies for Cyberwarfare Prevention

Book Description

Cybersecurity has become a topic of concern over the past decade as private industry, public administration, commerce, and communication have gained a greater online presence. As many individual and organizational activities continue to evolve in the digital sphere, new vulnerabilities arise. Cybersecurity Policies and Strategies for Cyberwarfare Prevention serves as an integral publication on the latest legal and defensive measures being implemented to protect individuals, as well as organizations, from cyber threats. Examining online criminal networks and threats in both the public and private spheres, this book is a necessary addition to the reference collections of IT specialists, administrators, business managers, researchers, and students interested in uncovering new ways to thwart cyber breaches and protect sensitive digital information.
