Book Description

12 Aug 2013 8132111222 978-8132111221

Sailing Safe in Cyberspace is an excellent resource on safe computing. It gives in-depth exposure to the various ways in which security of information might be compromised, how cybercrime markets work and measures that can be taken to ensure safety at individual and organizational levels.

Cyber security is not just a technical subject that can be resolved like any other IT-related problem—it is a ‘risk’ that can be mitigated by creating awareness and getting the right combination of technology and practices based on careful analysis. This book combines insights on cybersecurity from academic research, media reports, vendor reports, practical consultation and research experience.

The first section of the book discusses motivation and types of cybercrimes that can take place. The second lists the major types of threats that users might encounter. The third discusses the impact, trend and role of the government in combating cybercrime. The fourth section of the book tells the readers about ways to protect themselves and secure their data/information stored in computers and the cyberspace. It concludes by offering suggestions for building a secure cyber environment.

The book acknowledges the advantages the convergence of technology has brought about for users...A definite good read for people who do not wish to be bogged by technical jargon.
