Information Security Essentials Book Excerpt:

As technological and legal changes have hollowed out the protections that reporters and news organizations have depended upon for decades, information security concerns facing journalists as they report, produce, and disseminate the news have only intensified. From source prosecutions to physical attacks and online harassment, the last two decades have seen a dramatic increase in the risks faced by journalists at all levels even as the media industry confronts drastic cutbacks in budgets and staff. As a result, few professional or aspiring journalists have a comprehensive understanding of what is required to keep their sources, stories, colleagues, and reputations safe. This book is an essential guide to protecting news writers, sources, and organizations in the digital era. Susan E. McGregor provides a systematic understanding of the key technical, legal, and conceptual issues that anyone teaching, studying, or practicing journalism should know. Bringing together expert insights from both leading academics and security professionals who work at and with news organizations from BuzzFeed to the Associated Press, she lays out key principles and approaches for building information security into journalistic practice. McGregor draws on firsthand experience as a Wall Street Journal staffer, followed by a decade of researching, testing, and developing information security tools and practices. Filled with practical but evergreen advice that can enhance the security and efficacy of everything from daily beat reporting to long-term investigative projects, Information Security Essentials is a vital tool for journalists at all levels.

GDPR and Cyber Security for Business Information Systems Book Excerpt:

The General Data Protection Regulation is the latest, and one of the most stringent, regulations regarding Data Protection to be passed into law by the European Union. Fundamentally, it aims to protect the Rights and Freedoms of all the individuals included under its terms; ultimately the privacy and security of all our personal data. This requirement for protection extends globally, to all organizations, public and private, wherever personal data is held, processed, or transmitted concerning any EU citizen. Cyber Security is at the core of data protection and there is a heavy emphasis on the application of encryption and state of the art technology within the articles of the GDPR. This is considered to be a primary method in achieving compliance with the law. Understanding the overall use and scope of Cyber Security principles and tools allows for greater efficiency and more cost effective management of information systems. GDPR and Cyber Security for Business Information Systems is designed to present specific and practical information on the key areas of compliance to the GDPR relevant to Business Information Systems in a global context. Key areas covered include: - Principles and Rights within the GDPR - Information Security - Data Protection by Design and Default - Implementation Procedures - Encryption methods - Incident Response and Management - Data Breaches

Building a Cybersecurity Culture in Organizations Book Excerpt:

This book offers a practice-oriented guide to developing an effective cybersecurity culture in organizations. It provides a psychosocial perspective on common cyberthreats affecting organizations, and presents practical solutions for leveraging employees’ attitudes and behaviours in order to improve security. Cybersecurity, as well as the solutions used to achieve it, has largely been associated with technologies. In contrast, this book argues that cybersecurity begins with improving the connections between people and digital technologies. By presenting a comprehensive analysis of the current cybersecurity landscape, the author discusses, based on literature and her personal experience, human weaknesses in relation to security and the advantages of pursuing a holistic approach to cybersecurity, and suggests how to develop cybersecurity culture in practice. Organizations can improve their cyber resilience by adequately training their staff. Accordingly, the book also describes a set of training methods and tools. Further, ongoing education programmes and effective communication within organizations are considered, showing that they can become key drivers for successful cybersecurity awareness initiatives. When properly trained and actively involved, human beings can become the true first line of defence for every organization.
