With the rapid growth of Internet based technology, applications of computer networks, such as web search and email service, are extensively used. Nowadays almost no one can exclude himself or herself from using Internet. In the meantime, computer systems inevitably become targets of computer attacks. Once these attacks successfully explore the vulnerabilities of an information system, the confidential information in the system could be accessed and be used by those attackers who are not authorized to access to the information. Hence, this book will be provide a source of knowledge regarding information assurance and security.
Objective of the Book
This book will detail current trends and advances in information assurance and security, as well as explore emerging applications. The book will be divided into five major categories: attacks and vulnerabilities, security technologies, risk assessment and management, strategic planning of information security, and legal and ethical issues in information security. Together, it provides the readers a broad view of information confidentiality, protection, and management.
This book provides the readers with an unique opportunity to build a strong, fundamental understanding of theory and methods and thus to find solutions for many of today?s most interesting and challenging problems regarding information assurance and security. With the help of numerous examples, illustrations, as well as tables summarizing the results of quantitative analysis studies, the book will well serve reader?s needs in the field of information assurance and security in various disciplines, e.g. information and communication sciences, administrative sciences and management, education, sociology, computer science, and information technology.
Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Wireless Security
* Intrusion Detection and Prevention
* Virtual Private Network
* Access Control
* Biometric System
* Computer Forensic
* Best Practice in Managing Risk
* Global Information Security Assessment Methodology
