ABSTRACT

Cyber-Security Holism: A System of Solutions for a Distributed Problem   [open pdf - 239KB]

From the executive summary: "There is currently no effective cyber-security paradigm. Crime, exploitation, and invasions of privacy are increasing costing billions of dollars and have even started to bridge into the physical world with the destruction of uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran by the Stuxnet virus. There are a multitude of cyber security issues, but the most important topics address how to define malicious actions in cyberspace, the inadequacy of the international community to address these actions, and how active a role the private sector should play in the overall cybersecurity effort. There is no groundbreaking technology that will solve this problem despite much work by government agencies and corporate entities. In fact, this effort has compounded the problem of cyber-security being examined in its parts when it should be looked at as a whole. This is a distributed problem that needs a distributed answer, a systems solution that works as in any well engineered system."
