Cyber and its related technologies such as the Internet was introduced to the world only in late 1980s, and today it is unimaginable to think of a life without it. Despite being ubiquitous, cyber technology is still seen as an enigma by many, mainly due to its rapid development and the high level of science involved. In addition to the existing complexities of the technology, the level of threat matrix surrounding the cyber domain further leads to various misconceptions and exaggerations. Cyber technology is the future, thus forcing us to understand this complex domain to survive and evolve as technological beings. To understand the enigma, the book analyzes and disentangles the issues related to cyber technology. The author unravels the threats that terrorize the cyber world and aims to decrypt its domain. It also presents the existing reality of cyber environment in India and charts out a few recommendations for enhancing the country’s cyber security architecture. Further, the book delves into detailed analysis of various issues like hacking, dark web, cyber enabled terrorism and covert cyber capabilities of countries like the US and China.

This textbook offers an accessible introduction to the historical, technical, and strategic context of cyber conflict. The international relations, policy, doctrine, strategy, and operational issues associated with computer network attack, computer network exploitation, and computer network defense are collectively referred to as cyber warfare. This new textbook provides students with a comprehensive perspective on the technical, strategic, and policy issues associated with cyber conflict as well as an introduction to key state and non-state actors. Specifically, the book provides a comprehensive overview of these key issue areas: the historical emergence and evolution of cyber warfare, including the basic characteristics and methods of computer network attack, exploitation, and defense; a theoretical set of perspectives on conflict in the digital age from the point of view of international relations (IR) and the security studies field; the current national perspectives, policies, doctrines, and strategies relevant to cyber warfare; and an examination of key challenges in international law, norm development, and the potential impact of cyber warfare on future international conflicts. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber conflict and other forms of digital warfare, security studies, strategic studies, defense policy, and, most broadly, international relations.

Cyber Business Mindsets for a Wired Age Cyber Business has arrived - and everyone is involved. Terms like "virtual organisation" and "management by wire" are now being taken extremely seriously. So do you know what they mean? Or will you be left behind? From PC to Virtual Community The world of Cyber Business starts with the PC on your desk, takes in the Internet and virtual reality, and even flirts with science fiction. Across the world, millions already communicate by computer. Cyberspace - the world of electronic information - is a new frontier waiting to be explored. What does it all mean for you? Think back just a few years to a time before fax and e-mail. How on earth did we get anything done? Now think forward a few years. Don't be fooled into thinking that the computer revolution is over. The best is yet to come. A Mindset for the Future As Cyber Business developments gather momentum, the divide between man and machine will continue to blur. Already irreversible social and cultural transitions have been triggered in the scramble to re-engineer business operations for the 21st century. Everyone must embrace a new mindset - we are all witnessing the dawn of a new age. Cyber Business isn't a management toolkit or tutorial guide. Rather it will make you think about the cutting edge concepts and jargon which normally float by half understood, but which will soon govern that fine line between failure and success. Christopher Barnatt is a well-qualified guide to Cyber Business. He is lecturer in Organisational Behaviour, Computers and Management at the University of Nottingham. His previous publications include The Computers in Business Blueprint (1994). "... an invaluable guide to the new language of the superhighway... For entrepreneurs everywhere this book will keep you on the cutting edge of competition. For others who simply want to keep in touch with what is the fastest moving area of their business lives this book is a must."

Bitcoin became a buzzword overnight. A cyber-enigma with an enthusiastic following, it pops up in headlines and fuels endless media debate. You can apparently use it to buy almost anything from coffee to cars, yet few people seem to truly understand what it is. This raises the question: Why should anyone care about Bitcoin? In THE AGE OF CRYPTOCURRENCY, Wall Street journalists Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey deliver the definitive answer to this question. Cybermoney is poised to launch a revolution, one that could entirely re-invent traditional financial and social structures while bringing the world's billions of "unbanked" individuals into a new global economy. Cryptocurrency represents the promise of a financial system without a middleman, one owned by the people who use it and one safeguarded from the devastation of a 2008-type crash. But bitcoin, the most famous of the cybermonies, brings with it a reputation for instability, wild fluctuation, and illicit business; some fear it has the power to eliminate jobs and to upend the concept of a nation-state. It implies, above all, monumental and wide-reaching change—for better and for worse. But it is here to stay, and you ignore it at your peril. Vigna and Casey demystify the concept of cryptocurrency, detailing its origins, its function, and what you need to know to navigate a cyber-economy. The digital currency world will look very different from the paper currency world; THE AGE OF CRYPTOCURRENCY will teach you how to be ready for it.
