WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Cyber attacks on governments, corporations, and individuals are spiking. Sony’s PlayStation, Lockheed Martin, PBS, Google’s g-mail passwords, Nintendo, and now Citibank’s credit card customers’ files have all been hacked causing concern and significant financial damage. Syngress security experts are at the forefront of the battle against cybercrime and offer their solutions in recent, cutting-edge cyber security books.
“Our opponents can attack at any time, using any method at their disposal, and only need to be successful once,” say Jason Andress and Steve Winterfeld, authors of Cyber Warfare: Techniques, Tactics and Tools for Security Practitioners. “We have to be alert and react to every attack. This applies to every system, network and organization equally. Military, critical infrastructure and corporate systems are all part of the ongoing fight.”
In Cyber Warfare, authors Andress and Winterfeld describe how and why cyber war is waged, addressing the key issues in corporate and global cyber warfare, discussing real-world attempts by individuals and states to adversely affect the networks and computers of corporate players and other nations. The concepts discussed in this book will give those involved in information security 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 cyber terrorists, organized criminals and non-state actors.
Another Syngress title, Cybercrime and Espionage, by Will Gragido and John Pirc, provides a wealth of knowledge about advanced attacks, their success and their presence within all industry. This book educates security professionals on next generation threats, and the authors, working in conjunction with strategic technology partners have key insights into these new threats.
