This book is designed to provide the reader with the fundamental concepts of cybersecurity and cybercrime in an easy to understand, “self-teaching” format. It introduces all of the major subjects related to cybersecurity, including data security, threats and viruses, malicious software, firewalls and VPNs, security architecture and design, security policies, cyberlaw, cloud security, and more.

Features:

  • Provides an overview of cybersecurity and cybercrime subjects in an easy to understand, “self-teaching” format
  • Covers security related to emerging technologies such as cloud security, IoT, AES, and grid challenges
  • Includes discussion of information systems, cryptography, data and network security, threats and viruses, electronic payment systems, malicious software, firewalls and VPNs, security architecture and design, security policies, cyberlaw, and more.

"Cybersecurity: A Self-Teaching Introduction uses the same format as it covers the basics of cybersecurity and cybercrime challenges. Basic threats from data hijacking and manipulation to malware, firewalls, and viruses are all covered in a survey that considers both security measures and cyberlaw, presented in a "self-teaching" format that blends discussions with programming basics."
