Cyber Infrastructure Protection, Volume III   [open pdf - 4MB]

"We have achieved great advancement in computing systems in both hardware and software and their security. On the other hand, we still see massive cyberattacks that result in enormous data losses. Recent attacks have included sophisticated cyberattacks targeting many institutions, including those who provide management and host the core parts of Internet infrastructure. The number and types of attacks, the duration of attacks, and their complexity are all on the rise. The Cyber Infrastructure Protection (CIP) colloquium for the academic year 2015-16 was focused on strategy and policy directions relating to cyberspace; and how those directions should deal with the fastpaced, technological evolution of that domain. [...] This book is a follow-on to our earlier two books published in 2011 and 2013 respectively; and offers a detailed look at various aspects of cybersecurity. The chapters in this book are the result of invited presentations in a 1-day conference on cybersecurity that was held at the City University of New York (CUNY), City College, on October 15, 2015. A key contribution of this book is that it provides an integrated framework and a comprehensive view of the various cyber infrastructure protection (CIP) approaches. The book is divided into three main parts: Part I addresses policy and strategy for cybersecurity and cybercrime; Part II focuses on the cybersecurity of smart cities; and, Part III discusses cyber infrastructure security and technical issues. We strongly recommend this book for policymakers and researchers."
