In this book the author draws inspiration from Sun Tzu's Art of War, a work that explains conflict between nations, and he applies this to the computer security setting, examining how we should consider protecting information systems from accidents or malicious attacks. The author first briefly introduces Sun Tzu. Then each chapter in the book takes its inspiration from an original title in The Art of War, where the author offers a general introduction to the content and then describes its application in a cybersecurity setting. These chapters cover estimates; waging war; offensive strategy; how you prepare for an attack; energy; weaknesses and strengths; the variables that need consideration before embarking on a war; how infrastructure is related to the concept of ground; attack by fire or how skilled attackers hide behind noise; and employing secret agents. The book will be interesting for computer security researchers and professionals who would like some grounding in a security mindset.

The Art of War of Cybersecurity

The Art of War of Cybersecurity

"We have to learn to think like the attackers" is often said by people concerned about computing security.

"We have to learn to think like the attackers" is often said by people concerned about computing security. But more important is, simply, to have a clear mind and to think clearly, whether planning for security or facing an active cyber threat. Though computing and cybersecurity are profoundly modern, both clear thinking and security are old topics. The original Art of War, Sun Tzu's art of military affairs, is still widely read after more than 2000 years. René Descartes' writings about clear thinking are still current after almost four centuries. The author has combined these old approaches in a contemporary handbook targeted at systems administrators but useful also to anyone concerned about managing or practicing secure computing. It is a guide to the core of computing security and information security. More information can be found at http://www.pair.com/cogitage. URL: http://www.trafford.com/07-1219

The classic book The Art of War (or as it is sometimes translated, The Art of Strategy) by Sun Tzu is often used to illustrate principles that can apply to the management of business environments. The Art of War for Security Managers is the first book to apply the time-honored principles of Sun Tzu’s theories of conflict to contemporary organizational security. Corporate leaders have a responsibility to make rational choices that maximize return on investment. The author posits that while conflict is inevitable, it need not be costly. The result is an efficient framework for understanding and dealing with conflict while minimizing costly protracted battles, focusing specifically on the crucial tasks a security manager must carry out in a 21st century organization. * Includes an appendix with job aids the security manager can use in day-to-day workplace situations * Provides readers with a framework for adapting Sun Tzu's theories of conflict within their own organizations * From an author who routinely packs the room at his conference presentations

Most introductory texts provide a technology-based survey of methods and techniques that leaves the reader without a clear understanding of the interrelationships between methods and techniques. By providing a strategy-based introduction, the reader is given a clear understanding of how to provide overlapping defenses for critical information. This understanding provides a basis for engineering and risk-management decisions in the defense of information. Information security is a rapidly growing field, with a projected need for thousands of professionals within the next decade in the government sector alone. It is also a field that has changed in the last decade from a largely theory-based discipline to an experience-based discipline. This shift in the field has left several of the classic texts with a strongly dated feel. Provides a broad introduction to the methods and techniques in the field of information security Offers a strategy-based view of these tools and techniques, facilitating selection of overlapping methods for in-depth defense of information Provides very current view of the emerging standards of practice in information security
