CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime identifies a body of knowledge essential to acquire, develop, and sustain a secure information environment The rapid development of the Internet is not without its benefits and costs. The Internet is now an almost universal trade space for economic transactions, government decisions, and social interaction. At the same time, it is a largely unstructured terrain with few legal limitations and rules. The result has been a digital 'wild, wild West' with the Internet providing a fertile feeding ground for cyberwarriors, cyberterrorists, and cybercriminals. In the past two decades, data and information security has emerged as a global concern. Because of the increasing value of information in our life, an environment where it can be processed, stored, and transmitted correctly and securely is essential. This book provides a new context for addressing some of the broader challenges of security.It encourages security professionals to look at the dangerous environment in which information systems exist, and to view the world of international standards and best practices as a resource for creating a culture of security within their own organizations.
