Managing Cyber Attacks in International Law Business and Relations Book Excerpt:

This book presents a framework to reconceptualize internet governance and better manage cyber attacks. It examines the potential of polycentric regulation to increase accountability through bottom-up action. It also provides a synthesis of the current state of cybersecurity research, bringing features of cyber attacks to light and comparing and contrasting the threat to all relevant stakeholders. Throughout the book, cybersecurity is treated holistically, covering issues in law, science, economics and politics. This interdisciplinary approach is an exemplar of how strategies from different disciplines as well as the private and public sectors may cross-pollinate to enhance cybersecurity. Case studies and examples illustrate what is at stake and identify best practices. The book discusses technical issues of Internet governance and cybersecurity while presenting the material in an informal, straightforward manner. The book is designed to inform readers about the interplay of Internet governance and cybersecurity and the potential of polycentric regulation to help foster cyber peace.

Cyber Attacks and International Law on the Use of Force Book Excerpt:

Examining the thematic intersection of law, technology and violence, this book explores cyber attacks against states and current international law on the use of force. The theory of information ethics is used to critique the law’s conception of violence and to develop an informational approach as an alternative way to think about cyber attacks. Cyber attacks against states constitute a new form of violence in the information age, and international law on the use of force is limited in its capacity to regulate them. This book draws on Luciano Floridi’s theory of information ethics to critique the narrow conception of violence embodied in the law and to develop an alternative way to think about cyber attacks, violence, and the state. The author uses three case studies – the 2007 cyber attacks against Estonia, the Stuxnet incident involving Iran that was discovered in 2010, and the cyber attacks used as part of the Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election – to demonstrate that an informational approach offers a means to reimagine the state as an entity and cyber attacks as a form of violence against it. This interdisciplinary approach will appeal to an international audience of scholars in international law, international relations, security studies, cyber security, and anyone interested in the issues surrounding emerging technologies.

Implentation of Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Techniques against Cyber Attacks Book Excerpt:

Master's Thesis in the subject Computer Science - IT-Security, , language: English, abstract: Big Data analytics is the act of analysing data to discover hidden patterns, trends, preferences, and other important information in order to detect infiltration, prevent fraud, and possibly make the right judgements. This study was carried out to investigate the implementation of big data analytics as a technique for information protection against cyber attacks. This study specifically examined the extent of big data analytics implementation and the challenges militating the adoption and full implementation. The survey research design was employed and a total of one hundred and twenty-one staff members of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were enrolled in the study. The instrumentation of questionnaire was used to elicit information from the study participants. The data collected were analysed using the binary logistic regression. Findings from the study revealed that big data analytics provides better advantage to information protection against cyber attacks. Also, the findings showed that to a significant extent, big data analytics has not been full adopted and implemented by institution and organizations in Nigeria. This gap was detected in this study to be a result of high cost of hiring expert personnel, time and large quantity of silos. These factors indirectly affects the decision of top management regarding the adoption and implementation of big data analytics. This study recommends the adoption and implementation of big data analytics by organizations and institutions in Nigeria. Adequate training should be provided for staff members whose job description involves interacting with big data.

Managing Threats of Cyber Attacks on Mobile Devices Book Excerpt:

Academic Paper from the year 2017 in the subject Computer Science - IT-Security, grade: 2, Egerton University, language: English, abstract: Evidently, mobile phones and other mobile devices have taken over personal computers. They have become part of personal and business lives amongst the users. Regardless of they have brought unlimited challenges especially on issues of security. Cyber-attacks not only within individuals but also for businesses and government entities have threatened the welfare of mobile phones. Attacks on smartphones are on the high increase and quite sophisticated. This is quite alarming considering the fact that these devices are increasingly used to access and store sensitive personal information. In addition, they have also been used to conduct vital transactions such as in banking and online shopping. Vulnerability of attacks is high especially when attackers target unsuspecting users. Inasmuch as attacks target individuals, companies have also experienced similar threats that in the long run lead to massive losses whether as a result of breach of privacy and the risk of data loss or the resources used to secure the platforms. As a matter of fact, it has been estimated that cyber-attacks in mobile devices is very high as compared to personal computers. Nevertheless, the trend has been severed by ignorance of users who either fail to enable the security settings in their mobile devices or lack the resources to acquire more advanced mobile security. In overall, the industry has experienced laxity in providing up-to-date security technologies to secure mobile devices accordingly.

Responses to Cyber Terrorism Book Excerpt:

The one issue touched on repeatedly by the contributors of this publication is the difficulty of arriving at a definition of cyber terrorism. A NATO Office of Security document cautiously defines it as “a cyber attack using or exploiting computer or communication networks to cause sufficient destruction or disruption to generate fear or to intimidate a society into an ideological goal.” But the cyber world is surely remote from what is recognized as terrorism: the bloody attacks and ethnic conflicts, or, more precisely, the politically-motivated “intention to cause death or serious bodily harm to civilians or non-combatants with the purpose of intimidating a population or compelling a government ...” (UN report, Freedom from Fear, 2005). It is hard to think of an instance when computer code has physically harmed anyone. Yet a number of contributors show that exactly such events, potentially on a huge scale, can be expected. For example attacks on critical infrastructure, in particular on SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems which control physical processes in places like chemical factories, dams and power stations. A part of the publication examines cyber terrorism in the proper sense of the term and how to respond in terms of technology, awareness, and legal/political measures. However, there is also the related question of responding to the terrorist presence on the Internet (so-called ‘terrorist contents’). Here the Internet is not a weapon, but an important tool for terrorists’ communications (coordination, training, recruiting), and information gathering on the targets of planned attacks.

Emerging Cyber Threats and Cognitive Vulnerabilities Book Excerpt:

Emerging Cyber Threats and Cognitive Vulnerabilities identifies the critical role human behavior plays in cybersecurity and provides insights into how human decision-making can help address rising volumes of cyberthreats. The book examines the role of psychology in cybersecurity by addressing each actor involved in the process: hackers, targets, cybersecurity practitioners and the wider social context in which these groups operate. It applies psychological factors such as motivations, group processes and decision-making heuristics that may lead individuals to underestimate risk. The goal of this understanding is to more quickly identify threat and create early education and prevention strategies. This book covers a variety of topics and addresses different challenges in response to changes in the ways in to study various areas of decision-making, behavior, artificial intelligence, and human interaction in relation to cybersecurity. Explains psychological factors inherent in machine learning and artificial intelligence Discusses the social psychology of online radicalism and terrorist recruitment Examines the motivation and decision-making of hackers and "hacktivists" Investigates the use of personality psychology to extract secure information from individuals
