The book contains a brief introduction to some of the most used open-source intelligence (OSINT) tools and a selection of interviews with some of the key figures in industrial control systems (ICS), advanced persistent threat (APT) and online/deep web members organizations. It aims to be an introduction to the relationships between security, OSINT and the vast and complex world hiding in the deep web.
The information provided will be beneficial to security professionals and system administrators interested in exploring today’s concerns in database design, privacy and security-by-design, and deep web members organizations, including Cicada 3301, the Unknowns, Anonymous, and more.

This timely resource provides useful information for readers who know very little about the basic principles of keeping the devices they are connected to—or themselves—secure while online. In addition, the text discusses, in a non-technical way, the cost of connectedness to your privacy, and what you can do to it, including how to avoid all kinds of viruses, malware, cybercrime, and identity theft. Final sections provide the latest information on safe computing in the workplace and at school, and give parents steps they can take to keep young kids and teens safe online.Provides the most straightforward and up-to-date guide to cyber safety for anyone who ventures online for work, school, or personal useIncludes real world examples that demonstrate how cyber criminals commit their crimes, and what users can do to keep their data safe

We live in a highly networked world. Every digital device—phone, tablet, or computer is connected to each other, in one way or another. In this new age of connected networks, there is network crime. Network forensics is the brave new frontier of digital investigation and information security professionals to extend their abilities to catch miscreants on the network.
The book starts with an introduction to the world of network forensics and investigations. You will begin by getting an understanding of how to gather both physical and virtual evidence, intercepting and analyzing network data, wireless data packets, investigating intrusions, and so on. You will further explore the technology, tools, and investigating methods using malware forensics, network tunneling, and behaviors. By the end of the book, you will gain a complete understanding of how to successfully close a case.Style and approach
An easy-to-follow book filled with real-world case studies and applications. Each topic is explained along with all the practical tools and software needed, allowing the reader to use a completely hands-on approach.
Cybersecurity Breaches and Issues Surrounding Online Threat Protection is an essential reference source for the latest scholarly research on the various types of unauthorized access or damage to electronic data. Featuring extensive coverage across a range of relevant perspectives and topics, such as robotics, cloud computing, and electronic data diffusion, this publication is ideally designed for academicians, researchers, computer engineers, graduate students, and practitioners seeking current research on the threats that exist in the world of technology.
The book's first section describes existing threats and their consequences. The second section identifies newer cyber challenges across an even broader spectrum, including the internet of things. The concluding section looks at policies and practices in the United States, United Kingdom, and elsewhere that offer ways to mitigate threats to cyber security. Written in a nontechnical, accessible manner, the book will appeal to a diverse audience of policymakers, business leaders, cyber security experts, and interested general readers.
Cloud computing has already been adopted by many organizations and people because of its advantages of economy, reliability, scalability and guaranteed quality of service amongst others. Readers will learn specifics about software as a service (Saas), platform as a service (Paas), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), server and desktop virtualization, and much more.
Readers will have a greater comprehension of cloud engineering and the actions required to rapidly reap its benefits while at the same time lowering IT implementation risk. The book’s content is ideal for users wanting to migrate to the cloud, IT professionals seeking an overview on cloud fundamentals, and computer science students who will build cloud solutions for testing purposes.
After reading this book, you should be able to use these tools to do some testing and even working on penetration projects. You just need to remember not to use these techniques in a production environment without having a formal approval.
In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency's widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden's disclosures.
Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA's unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.
Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation's political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens—and considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.
