Since the turn of the century much has happened in politics, governments, spying, technology, global business, mobile communications, and global competition on national and corporate levels. These sweeping changes have nearly annihilated privacy anywhere in the world and have also affected how global information warfare is waged and what must be done to counter its attacks.
In light of increased attacks since 2002, Global Information Warfare: The New Digital Battlefield, Second Edition provides a critical update on the nature and approaches to global information warfare. It focuses on threats, vulnerabilities, attacks, and defenses from the perspectives of various players such as governments, corporations, terrorists, and private citizens.
Upgrades to the Second Edition Include:
Revised discussions of changes and impacts of global information warfare since 2002
Updated analyses of the capabilities of several nation-states as well as nonstate actors
A comprehensive list of incidents that have occurred in the past year to show the scope of the problem of GIW
Discussions of post-9/11 governmental changes and shifting priorities with clearer hindsight than was possible in the first edition
The book underscores how hostile countries, business competitors, terrorists, and others are waging information warfare against adversaries, even from across the globe. It describes attacks on information systems through theft, Internet espionage, deception, and sabotage, and illustrates countermeasures used to defeat these threats.
The second edition of Global Information Warfare contains a wealth of information and detailed analyses of capabilities of contemporary information technology and the capabilities of the individuals and groups who employ it in their respective digital wars. It is a crucial source for gaining the best understanding of the current state of information warfare and the most effective ways to counter it.
Описание: The phrase “information society” is one so ubiquitous it has become passé, but its continued use, even in academic spheres, indicates a shared acknowledgement: that information, in its myriad mercurial forms, has become so integrated into every facet of modern life that it must be considered first and foremost when making any attempt to describe the character of the age.TheHandbook of Research on Cultural and Economic Impacts of the Information Society brings together an international and interdisciplinary forum of scholars and researchers to provide a comprehensive understanding of the role that information plays in all aspects of modern society. Through case-studies and empirical analyses, this volume provides an audience of academics, researchers, students, and professionals with a timely and straightforward reference source on the role that information technology plays in such spheres as law enforcement, democracy, governance, finance, rural development, and more.Featuring empirical research and real-world case studies, this handbook explores concepts including, but not limited to, consumer culture, the impact of information and communication technologies on business innovation, cloud computing services, open and unrestricted data, and the potential value of affective computing.

Описание: Is the Internet democratizing American politics? Do political Web sites and blogs mobilize inactive citizens and make the public sphere more inclusive? This book reveals that, contrary to popular belief, the Internet has done little to broaden political discourse but in fact empowers a small set of elites - some new, but most familiar.

Описание: The often-advocated view that the information technology revolution will change the world must stem from the basic premiss that invesent in IT has a visible impact on productivity and economic growth. But how can we measure this impact and how large is it? By surveying previous studies and by presenting new micro- and macroeconomic evidence, this collection shows that in recent years the use of IT in the production of goods and services has had a strong influence on productivity and economic growth in industrial and in newly industrialized countries. Yet developing countries seem neither to have invested in IT nor benefited from such investments to the same extent as industrial countries. There is concern that information is becoming a commodity, like income and wealth, by which countries are classified as rich and poor. The contributors to this volume argue that investment in infrastructure, physical capital, and education is the key to economic development. This is an old policy prescription in the economics of development. What is new is the suggestion that the IT content of these investments should be high. The use of IT is so widely spread throughout the world economy that no single country can avoid investing in this technology if it wants to improve the standard of living of its citizens. Besides providing citizens with access to IT and to IT education and training, governments should promote participation in the information society, thus generating a sufficiently strong demand base for information products. By developing advanced applications of IT, and by becoming a model for the private sector, governments can alter worker, firm, and consumer attitudes, and lower their costs of adopting IT. The use of IT, not necessarily its production, is what matters for economic development.
Описание: It is surprising to think that in today’s rapidly evolving world of technology, over half of the globe still does not have access to high speed internet. Creating community wireless networks has in the past been a way to provide remote communities with internet and network access. <br><br><em>Social and Economic Effects of Community Wireless Networks and Infrastructures</em> highlights the successes of community wireless networks but also boldly addresses the potential risk factors and broader socioeconomic concerns. This publication’s exploration of previous successes and failures, various designs, and potential challenges with CWNs makes it a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners, vendors, and activists.
