Reviews

"Contemporary threats to national security and neighborhood safety are increasingly non-physical. Those who seek to destroy citizen freedoms and liberties are harnessing the power of Information Communications Technologies which now require innovative solutions. This insightful volume fills an operational gap in understanding Information Communications Technologies and is a welcome introduction to tackling the security challenges which lie ahead."
