If you’re involved in cybersecurity as a software developer, forensic investigator, or network administrator, this practical guide shows you how to apply the scientific method when assessing techniques for protecting your information systems. You’ll learn how to conduct scientific experiments on everyday tools and procedures, whether you’re evaluating corporate security systems, testing your own security product, or looking for bugs in a mobile game. Once author Josiah Dykstra gets you up to speed on the scientific method, he helps you focus on standalone, domain-specific topics, such as cryptography, malware analysis, and system security engineering. The latter chapters include practical case studies that demonstrate how to use available tools to conduct domain-specific scientific experiments. Learn the steps necessary to conduct scientific experiments in cybersecurity Explore fuzzing to test how your software handles various inputs Measure the performance of the Snort intrusion detection system Locate malicious “needles in a haystack” in your network and IT environment Evaluate cryptography design and application in IoT products Conduct an experiment to identify relationships between similar malware binaries Understand system-level security requirements for enterprise networks and web services

As one of the eighteen field-specific reports comprising the comprehensive scope of the strategic general report of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range planning for developing science and technology in the field of information science & technology. They each craft a roadmap for their sphere of development to 2050. In their entirety, the general and sub-group reports analyze the evolution and laws governing the development of science and technology, describe the decisive impact of science and technology on the modernization process, predict that the world is on the eve of an impending S&T revolution, and call for China to be fully prepared for this new round of S&T advancement. Based on the detailed study of the demands on S&T innovation in China’s modernization, the reports draw a framework for eight basic and strategic systems of socio-economic development with the support of science and technology, work out China’s S&T roadmaps for the relevant eight basic and strategic systems in line with China’s reality, further detail S&T initiatives of strategic importance to China’s modernization, and provide S&T decision-makers with comprehensive consultations for the development of S&T innovation consistent with China’s reality. Supported by illustrations and tables of data, the reports provide researchers, government officials and entrepreneurs with guidance concerning research directions, the planning process, and investment. Founded in 1949, the Chinese Academy of Sciences is the nation’s highest academic institution in natural sciences. Its major responsibilities are to conduct research in basic and technological sciences, to undertake nationwide integrated surveys on natural resources and ecological environment, to provide the country with scientific data and consultations for government’s decision-making, to undertake government-assigned projects with regard to key S&T problems in the process of socio-economic development, to initiate personnel training, and to promote China’s high-tech enterprises through its active engagement in these areas.

Understand the total cost of ownership and return on investment for network security solutions Understand what motivates hackers and how to classify threats Learn how to recognize common vulnerabilities and common types of attacks Examine modern day security systems, devices, and mitigation techniques Integrate policies and personnel with security equipment to effectively lessen security risks Analyze the greater implications of security breaches facing corporations and executives today Understand the governance aspects of network security to help implement a climate of change throughout your organization Learn how to qualify your organization’s aversion to risk Quantify the hard costs of attacks versus the cost of security technology investment to determine ROI Learn the essential elements of security policy development and how to continually assess security needs and vulnerabilities The Business Case for Network Security: Advocacy, Governance, and ROI addresses the needs of networking professionals and business executives who seek to assess their organization’s risks and objectively quantify both costs and cost savings related to network security technology investments. This book covers the latest topics in network attacks and security. It includes a detailed security-minded examination of return on investment (ROI) and associated financial methodologies that yield both objective and subjective data. The book also introduces and explores the concept of return on prevention (ROP) and discusses the greater implications currently facing corporations, including governance and the fundamental importance of security, for senior executives and the board. Making technical issues accessible, this book presents an overview of security technologies that uses a holistic and objective model to quantify issues such as ROI, total cost of ownership (TCO), and risk tolerance. This book explores capital expenditures and fixed and variable costs, such as maintenance and upgrades, to determine a realistic TCO figure, which in turn is used as the foundation in calculating ROI. The importance of security policies addressing such issues as Internet usage, remote-access usage, and incident reporting is also discussed, acknowledging that the most comprehensive security equipment will not protect an organization if it is poorly configured, implemented, or used. Quick reference sheets and worksheets, included in the appendixes, provide technology reviews and allow financial modeling exercises to be performed easily. An essential IT security-investing tool written from a business management perspective, The Business Case for Network Security: Advocacy, Governance, and ROI helps you determine the effective ROP for your business. This volume is in the Network Business Series offered by Cisco Press®. Books in this series provide IT executives, decision makers, and networking professionals with pertinent information about today’s most important technologies and business strategies.

Willkommen in der New Economy, der Welt der digitalen Wirtschaft. Informationen sind leichter zugänglich als je zuvor. Die Vernetzung wird dicher, und digitale Kommunikation ist aus den Unternehmen nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die Begeisterung für die Technologie hat jedoch Ihren Preis: Die Zahl der Sicherheitsrisiken nimmt ständig zu. Die neuen Gefahren, die mit dem E-Business verknüpft sind, müssen den Unternehmen weltweit aber erst klar werden. Dieses Buch ist ein erster Schritt in diese Richtung. Bruce Schneier, anerkannter Experte im Bereich Kryptographie, erklärt, was Unternehmen über IT-Sicherheit wissen müssen, um zu überleben und wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben. Er deckt das gesamte System auf, von den Ursachen der Sicherheitslücken bis hin zu den Motiven, die hinter böswilligen Attacken stehen. Schneier zeigt Sicherheitstechnologien und deren Möglichkeiten, aber auch deren Grenzen auf. Fundiert und anschaulich zugleich behandelt dieser praktische Leitfaden: - Die digitalen Bedrohungen und Angriffe, die es zu kennen gilt - Die derzeit verfügbaren Sicherheitsprodukte und -prozesse - Die Technologien, die in den nächsten Jahren interessant werden könnten - Die Grenzen der Technik - Das Vorgehen, um Sicherheitsmängel an einem Produkt offenzulegen - Die Möglichkeiten, existierende Risiken in einem Unternehmen festzustellen - Die Implementierung einer wirksamen Sicherheitspolitik Schneiers Darstellung der digitalen Welt und unserer vernetzten Gesellschaft ist pragmatisch, interessant und humorvoll. Und sie ermöglicht es dem Leser, die vernetzte Welt zu verstehen und sich gegen ihre Bedrohungen zu wappnen. Hier finden Sie die Unterstützung eines Experten, die Sie für die Entscheidungsfindung im Bereich IT-Sicherheit brauchen.
