Optimal Spending on Cybersecurity Measures Book Excerpt:

This book explores the strategic decisions made by organizations when implementing cybersecurity controls and leveraging economic models and theories from the economics of information security and risk-management frameworks. Based on unique and distinct research completed within the field of risk-management and information security, this book provides insight into organizational risk management processes utilized in determining cybersecurity investments. It describes how theoretical models and frameworks rely on either specific scenarios or controlled conditions and how decisions on cybersecurity spending within organizations, specifically the funding available in comparison to the recommended security measures necessary for compliance, vary depending on stakeholders. As the trade-off between the costs of implementing a security measure and the benefit derived from the implementation of security controls is not easily measured, a business leader’s decision to fund security measures may be biased. The author presents an innovative approach to assess cyber security initiatives with a risk-management perspective and leverages a data-centric focus on the evolution of cyber-attacks. This book is ideal for business school students and technology professionals with an interest in risk management.

Conflict Power and Organizational Change Book Excerpt:

A capacity for learning, adapting, and changing is an important facet of organizational resilience. What is involved in generative organizational change? Is it an event, a process, or constantly ongoing? What makes organizational change "good" for the organization? Who has the power to decide what is "good" for the organization and its members? How is it decided? What if there is strong disagreement or conflict? How is that handled? What is the role of organizational members and leaders in these discussions? As these questions demonstrate, the triad of change, power and conflict are intimately linked. The purpose of this book is to explore the topics of change, power and conflict as they relate to the experiences of everyday organizational life. It will provide readers the opportunity to reflect critically on their own local experience and involvement in organizations and to glean actionable wisdom for meaningful engagement and impactful contributions to their organization(s) in the present and future. Conflict, Power, and Organizational Change will be of interest to students, researchers, academics and professional colleagues interested in the fields of business and organizational studies, especially those wanting to get acquainted with the concepts of change, power and conflict in contemporary organizational settings.

Crony Capitalism in US Health Care Book Excerpt:

The US political system has come to depend upon money too much. The US health care industry spends the most on political lobbying among all the 13 industrial sectors in the US economy. The government regulatory agencies at both federal and state levels have been "captured" by the health industry interest groups meaning that the regulatory agencies respond to the interests of the industry but not those of citizens. This book employs a broad theoretical framework of crony capitalism to understand US health care system dysfunction. This framework has not been applied before in any serious manner to understand the shortcomings in the US health care system. Specifically, the book examines the role of seven key players using this framework - politicians/interest groups, pharmaceutical companies, private health insurers, hospitals/hospital networks, physicians, medical device manufacturers, and the American public. Crony capitalism is a destructive force and is rampant in US health care system, causing much waste, inefficiencies, and malaise in the system. Current efforts and initiatives, such as patient-centered medical homes and precision medicine, for improving/reforming the system are of mere academic interest and tantamount to taking aspirin to treat cancer. They do not even pretend to address the root cause of the problem, namely, crony capitalism. Offering prescriptions to fix the U.S. health care system based on a comprehensive diagnosis of the dysfunction, this book will be of interest to researchers, academics, policymakers, and students in the fields of health care management, public and non-profit management, health policy, administration, and economics, and political science.

Culture and Resilience at Work Book Excerpt:

In 1979, Suzanne C. Kobasa propounded her theory of "hardiness" where she hypothesized her 3Cs: Commitment, Control, and Challenge, as the basic ingredients of hardiness that make an individual stress resilient. She was one of the early researchers who paid attention to personality features and illustrated that individuals who experience high level of stress without mental and physical illness have a different personality from those who become ill in stressful conditions. In current times, the discourse has enjoyed a sustained scholarly interest but there is hardly any study on the corporate professionals or the Indian context. Since the early 1990s, India has joined the corporate world and has been a fast-developing country. This changed state of affairs provides a broader scope of study on hardy personality in coping with stress in the Indian context. This book examines the efficacy of hardiness on the Indian corporate professionals in the post-globalization scenario. It endeavours to situate Kobasa’s foundational theorisation along with those offered by other scholars in the context of the contemporary life situations with a focus on India. It presents a hypothesis that in the Indian context, culture could be looked upon as yet another basic component of hardiness. Culture and Resilience at Work offers an assessment of the significant contribution of Indian culture as one of the major contributing components in enhancing hardiness in corporate professionals. It will be of interest to researchers, academics, professionals, and students in the fields of stress management, human resource management, social psychology, culture studies, and organizational behaviour.

Human Resource Management and the Implementation of Change Book Excerpt:

With the increased pace of global, economical and technological development, change has become an inevitable feature of any organisation to survive in the competitive market. If it is a planned change process, the HR practitioner can use any of the existing general models or theories of change and use suggestive interventions to increase effectiveness and capability to change itself. When the magnitude of change is unpredictable or the degree of the organisational process or systems is unorganised, the existing models or practice of planned change is still in the formative stage, and there is room for continuous refinement and improvement. This book will bridge this gap in the current organisational development and change literature by benefiting the HR practitioner with six real case studies. The cases bring out the interventions adopted, key activities associated with the successful implementation of interventions and the critical role played by HR in achieving organisational effectiveness. This book captures the transformational journey of a diverse set of companies and weaves various dimensions into a common coherent framework for the field of HRM in Change Management. The case studies illustrate six powerful organisational experiences, listing the major activities contributing to effective change management from motivating change, vision, support from key stakeholders, transition management to organisational and HR commitment for implementation. By demonstrating the role of HR as a ‘change agent,’ this volume will be valuable to researchers, academics, managers and students in the fields of human resource management and change management.

Small Business Big Government and the Origins of Enterprise Policy Book Excerpt:

The Report of the Committee of Inquiry on Small Firms (the Bolton Committee Report) was produced at a time of significant political change. The 1970s in the UK saw the beginning of the end for interventionism and ‘big government’ and the emergence of a new free market, economic liberalism. However, the same period also saw the creation of what became a substantial agenda to intervene in the economy through an extensive range of government initiatives aimed at encouraging and enabling small firms and entrepreneurship. Marking the 50th Anniversary of the publication of the Bolton Committee’s report this book provides researchers with new insights into the tensions between these potentially contradictory political agendas that would come to shape our modern economy. It provides the first in-depth analysis of the origins, operation and outcomes of the Bolton Committee, which is widely seen as responsible for the small firm agenda in the UK. In doing so, new insights are generated not only into the birth of enterprise policy in the UK but into the wider changes in political economy that saw powerful tensions between free market rhetoric and new forms of interventionism in practice. The book will be of interest to scholars and PhD students working in the fields of entrepreneurship, small business management and business history.

Routledge Handbook of International Cybersecurity Book Excerpt:

The Routledge Handbook of International Cybersecurity examines the development and use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) from the perspective of international peace and security. Acknowledging that the very notion of peace and security has become more complex, the volume seeks to determine which questions of cybersecurity are indeed of relevance for international peace and security and which, while requiring international attention, are simply issues of contemporary governance or development. The Handbook offers a variety of thematic, regional and disciplinary perspectives on the question of international cybersecurity, and the chapters contextualize cybersecurity in the broader contestation over the world order, international law, conflict, human rights, governance and development. The volume is split into four thematic sections: Concepts and frameworks; Challenges to secure and peaceful cyberspace; National and regional perspectives on cybersecurity; Global approaches to cybersecurity. This book will be of much interest to students of cybersecurity, computer science, sociology, international law, defence studies and International Relations in general.

Integrated Framework for Information Security Investment and Cyber Insurance Book Excerpt:

This paper presents analytical models for optimizing firm's cybersecurity spending and cyber insurance based on the effectiveness of spending in reducing cyber threats, vulnerability and impact, respectively. At the macro-level, the paper shows how private-sector contribution toward countering cybercrimes can reduce the overall cyber loss and create economic value. At the micro level, a firm's effectiveness of security spending can be high in addressing specific cyber threats, but can be reduced when other co-dependent security measures are not put in place. The paper derives an optimal mix of cybersecurity investments in “knowledge and expertise” versus “deploying mitigation measures”. The paper proposes customizing cyber insurance for firms with itemized threat-specific coverage with a portion of the premium used to train clients with risk knowledge and nudge clients in risk mitigation services. Small and Mid-Sized Enterprises can stand benefit the most from such innovative cyber insurance.

Cyberspace in Peace and War Book Excerpt:

This book is written to be a comprehensive guide to cybersecurity and cyberwar policy and strategy, developed for a one- or two-semester class for students of public policy (including political science, law, business, etc.). Although written from a U.S. perspective, most of its contents are globally relevant. It is written essentially in four sections. The first (chapters 1 - 5) describes how compromises of computers and networks permit unauthorized parties to extract information from such systems (cyber-espionage), and/or to force these systems to misbehave in ways that disrupt their operations or corrupt their workings. The section examines notable hacks of systems, fundamental challenges to cybersecurity (e.g., the lack of forced entry, the measure-countermeasure relationship) including the role of malware, and various broad approaches to cybersecurity. The second (chapters 6 - 9) describes what government policies can, and, as importantly, cannot be expected to do to improve a nation’s cybersecurity thereby leaving leave countries less susceptible to cyberattack by others. Among its focus areas are approaches to countering nation-scale attacks, the cost to victims of broad-scale cyberespionage, and how to balance intelligence and cybersecurity needs. The third (chapters 10 - 15) looks at cyberwar in the context of military operations. Describing cyberspace as the 5th domain of warfare feeds the notion that lessons learned from other domains (e.g., land, sea) apply to cyberspace. In reality, cyberwar (a campaign of disrupting/corrupting computers/networks) is quite different: it rarely breaks things, can only be useful against a sophisticated adversary, competes against cyber-espionage, and has many first-strike characteristics. The fourth (chapters 16 – 35) examines strategic cyberwar within the context of state-on-state relations. It examines what strategic cyberwar (and threats thereof) can do against whom – and how countries can respond. It then considers the possibility and limitations of a deterrence strategy to modulate such threats, covering credibility, attribution, thresholds, and punishment (as well as whether denial can deter). It continues by examining sub rosa attacks (where neither the effects nor the attacker are obvious to the public); the role of proxy cyberwar; the scope for brandishing cyberattack capabilities (including in a nuclear context); the role of narrative and signals in a conflict in cyberspace; questions of strategic stability; and norms for conduct in cyberspace (particularly in the context of Sino-U.S. relations) and the role played by international law. The last chapter considers the future of cyberwar.

Managing Cybersecurity Resources Book Excerpt:

Breaches in cybersecurity are on the rise. Between 1998 and 2003, reported cybersecurity incidents increased over thirty-fold. Well-publicized information security breaches have made cybersecurity a critical and timely topic for the general public, as well as for corporations, not-for-profit organizations and the government. As a result, organizations need to be able to make the business case for spending the right amount on cybersecurity. They also need to know how to efficiently allocate these funds to specific cybersecurity activities. Managing Cybersecurity Resources is the first book to specifically focus on providing a framework for understanding how to use economic and financial management tools in helping to address these important issues. The McGraw-Hill Homeland Security Series draws on frontline government, military, and business experts to detail what individuals and businesses can and must do to understand and move forward in this challenging new environment. Books in this timely and noteworthy series will cover everything from the balance between freedom and safety to strategies for protection of intellectual, business, and personal property to structures and goals of terrorist groups including Al-Qaeda.

Adaptive Autonomous Secure Cyber Systems Book Excerpt:

This book explores fundamental scientific problems essential for autonomous cyber defense. Specific areas include: Game and control theory-based moving target defenses (MTDs) and adaptive cyber defenses (ACDs) for fully autonomous cyber operations; The extent to which autonomous cyber systems can be designed and operated in a framework that is significantly different from the human-based systems we now operate; On-line learning algorithms, including deep recurrent networks and reinforcement learning, for the kinds of situation awareness and decisions that autonomous cyber systems will require; Human understanding and control of highly distributed autonomous cyber defenses; Quantitative performance metrics for the above so that autonomous cyber defensive agents can reason about the situation and appropriate responses as well as allowing humans to assess and improve the autonomous system. This book establishes scientific foundations for adaptive autonomous cyber systems and ultimately brings about a more secure and reliable Internet. The recent advances in adaptive cyber defense (ACD) have developed a range of new ACD techniques and methodologies for reasoning in an adaptive environment. Autonomy in physical and cyber systems promises to revolutionize cyber operations. The ability of autonomous systems to execute at scales, scopes, and tempos exceeding those of humans and human-controlled systems will introduce entirely new types of cyber defense strategies and tactics, especially in highly contested physical and cyber environments. The development and automation of cyber strategies that are responsive to autonomous adversaries pose basic new technical challenges for cyber-security. This book targets cyber-security professionals and researchers (industry, governments, and military). Advanced-level students in computer science and information systems will also find this book useful as a secondary textbook.

Assessing the Effectiveness of Defensive Cyber Operations Book Excerpt:

"Enormous amounts of resources are being allocated for defensive cyber programs. The White House's Cyber Security National Action Plan proposes a 35% increase in federal spending on cyber security during Fiscal Year 2017. Without an appropriate understanding of how well the people, processes, defenses, and risk are measured, there will naturally be unproductive tasking, inefficient spending and ineffective reporting. In 2016, the White House established the Commission on enhancing National Cybersecurity to assess the state of our nation's cybersecurity posture. The report recognized both the difficulty and the need to develop meaningful metrics for cybersecurity in order to better secure the cyber landscape as it pertained to the broader digital ecosystem and its connection to our economy, government, and defense. The commission focused on both the private sector as well as the government and suggested the need to perfect policies, practices and technologies. Additionally, the Marine Corps University recently released research topics addressing some of the most important concerns affecting warfighters. One of the concerns was the lack of a methodology for determining the performance of Defensive Cyber Operations (DCO). Specifically addressed was a need to better understand how actions taken by network defenders facilitate network protection. Previous analysis of this topic led to a reactive and un-actionable approach which was tied to negative events such as the quantity and category of incident reports. As there is currently no framework or scorecard built to evaluate DCO as a whole effort, a methodical approach was taken to scope the problem, compare existing frameworks, develop a framework, and present a scorecard. The first phase of research required scoping exactly what is involved in DCO at the most basic level and understanding how the DoD evaluates performance. This resulted in an understanding of the actionability of metrics, the levels of warfare, and the counterbalance of cyber asymmetry. Also identified was the military doctrine for assessments, which frames evaluations in terms of Measures of Effectiveness and Measures of Performance and supports continuous assessments that provide actionable information to decision makers. The second phase required a detailed analysis of existing frameworks that measured related functions of cybersecurity. Specifically utilized were industry accepted compliance, incident handling, governance, and risk management frameworks. The outcome identified four functional areas common to most frameworks; people, processes, defenses, and risk. The third phase involved developing a framework that evaluated the four functional areas of DCO identified in the problem-framing phase, utilizing the most appropriate features of the already established frameworks. A key facet of this evaluation was that assessments should be weighed over time to demonstrate progress but also be measured against standards, peers, and the adversary. The final phase identified the continuous reporting criteria and the tangible mechanism for evaluating an organization in terms of a scorecard. The framework is not a static list of measurements but rather supports tailoring metrics to the organization's specific requirements. The fundamentals of the framework are organized into elements, levels, categories, ends/ways, and measures. These metrics should be documented utilizing a standardized rubric that assesses the capability and performance of the metrics. The results should be reviewed and analyzed to determine trends, areas for improvement or investment and actionable information to support decision making. Additionally, a modified Delphi analysis with expert consensus validated the major concepts put forward in this paper. Overall, this research provides a comprehensive framework to evaluate the performance of Defensive Cyber Operations in terms of people, processes, defenses, and risk, filling a knowledge gap that is increasingly vital."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
