Cyber Warfare

Techniques, Tactics and Tools for Security Practitioners

Cyber Warfare explores the battlefields, participants and tools and techniques used during today's digital conflicts. The concepts discussed in this book will give those involved in information security at all levels a better idea of how cyber conflicts are carried out now, how they will change in the future and how to detect and defend against espionage, hacktivism, insider threats and non-state actors like organized criminals and terrorists. Every one of our systems is under attack from multiple vectors-our defenses must be ready all the time and our alert systems must detect the threats every time.

Information security practitioners, network security administrators, computer system administrators, security analysts

  • "A fifth domain of war has been added to land, air, sea and space: cyber. Malware capable of taking a nuclear program offline was science fiction 5 years ago: Stuxnet demonstrates that information security is now a matter of national security. This timely and necessary book provides an assessment of the current state of cyber warfare, and more importantly, where the conflict is heading. Highly recommended for information security professionals."--Eric Conrad, Lead Author, CISSP Study Guide, President, Backshore Communications
