Protecting computer networks and their client computers against willful (or accidental) attacks is a growing concern for organizations and their information technology managers. This book draws upon the author's years of experience in computer security to describe a set of over 200 "rules" designed to enhance the security of a computer network (and its data) and to allow quick detection of an attack and development of effective defensive responses to attacks. Both novice and experienced network administrators will find this book an essential part of their professional "tool kit." It is also essential reading for a corporate or organization manager who needs a solid understanding of the issues involved in computer security. Much literature is available on network and data security that describes security concepts, but offers so many different solutions to information security problems that it typically overwhelms both the novice and the experienced network administrator. This book presents a simple set of rules important in maintaining good information security. These rules or best practices are intended to be a recipe for setting up network and information security. This manual will take the mystery out of configuring an information security solution and provide a framework which the novice as well as experienced network administrator can follow and adapt to their network and data environment. * Provides practical, "battle tested" rules and guidelines to protect computer networks against different forms of attack * Covers both network and client level attacks, including attacks via the internet and damage to the physical hardware of a network

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental aspects of Information Security (including Web, Networked World, Systems, Applications, and Communication Channels). Security is also an essential part of e-business strategy (including protecting critical infrastructures that depend on information systems) and hence information security in the enterprise (Government, Industry, Academia, and Society) and over networks has become the primary concern. The book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of how information can be protected throughout computer networks. The concepts related to the main objectives of computer and information security systems, namely confidentiality, data integrity, authentication (entity and data origin), access control, and non-repudiation have been elucidated, providing a sound foundation in the principles of cryptography and network security. The book provides a detailed treatment of design principles of classical and modern cryptosystems through an elaborate study of cryptographic techniques, algorithms, and protocols. It covers all areas of security—using Symmetric key and Public key cryptography, hash functions, authentication techniques, biometric techniques, and stegano-graphy. Besides, techniques such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Firewalls, IPSec for Web security and network security are addressed as well to complete the security framework of the Internet. Finally, the author demons-trates how an online voting system can be built, showcasing information security techniques, for societal benefits. Information Security: Theory and Practice is intended as a textbook for a one-semester course in Information Security/Network Security and Crypto-graphy for B.E./B.Tech students of Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology.

The new emphasis on physical security resulting from the terrorist threat has forced many information security professionals to struggle to maintain their organization's focus on protecting information assets. In order to command attention, they need to emphasize the broader role of information security in the strategy of their companies. Until now, however, most books about strategy and planning have focused on the production side of the business, rather than operations. Strategic Information Security integrates the importance of sound security policy with the strategic goals of an organization. It provides IT professionals and management with insight into the issues surrounding the goals of protecting valuable information assets. This text reiterates that an effective information security program relies on more than policies or hardware and software, instead it hinges on having a mindset that security is a core part of the business and not just an afterthought. Armed with the content contained in this book, security specialists can redirect the discussion of security towards the terms and concepts that management understands. This increases the likelihood of obtaining the funding and managerial support that is needed to build and maintain airtight security programs.

"Special attention is paid to terms which most often prevent educated readers from understanding journal articles and books in cryptology, security and information systems, and computer science, in addition to applied fields that build on these disciplines, such as system design, security auditing, vulnerability testing, and role-based management. The emphasis throughout The Information Security Dictionary is on concepts, rather than implementations. Since concepts often complicate matters, readers may find a definition makes sense only after it has been illustrated by an example which the author provides in this dictionary." "The Dictionary of Information Security is designed for researchers, students, and practitioners in industry, as well as educated readers interested in the security field."--BOOK JACKET.

The adoption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in healthcare is driven by the need to contain costs while maximizing quality and efficiency. However, ICT adoption for healthcare information management has brought far-reaching effects and implications on the spirit of the Hippocratic Oath, patient privacy and confidentiality. A wave of security breaches have led to pressing calls for opt-in and opt-out provisions where patients are free to choose to or not have their healthcare information collected and recorded within healthcare information systems. Such provisions have negative impact on cost, efficiency and quality of patient care. Thus determined efforts to gain patient trust is increasingly under consideration for enforcement through legislation, standards, national policy frameworks and implementation systems geared towards closing gaps in ICT security frameworks. The ever-increasing healthcare expenditure and pressing demand for improved quality and efficiency in patient care services are driving innovation in healthcare information management. Key among the main innovations is the introduction of new healthcare practice concepts such as shared care, evidence-based medicine, clinical practice guidelines and protocols, the cradle-to-grave health record and clinical workflow or careflow. Central to these organizational re-engineering innovations is the widespread adoption of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) at national and regional levels, which has ushered in computer-based healthcare information management that is centred on the electronic healthcare record (EHR).
