Examining the thematic intersection of law, technology and violence, this book explores cyber attacks against states and current international law on the use of force. The theory of information ethics is used to critique the law’s conception of violence and to develop an informational approach as an alternative way to think about cyber attacks. Cyber attacks against states constitute a new form of violence in the information age, and international law on the use of force is limited in its capacity to regulate them. This book draws on Luciano Floridi’s theory of information ethics to critique the narrow conception of violence embodied in the law and to develop an alternative way to think about cyber attacks, violence, and the state. The author uses three case studies – the 2007 cyber attacks against Estonia, the Stuxnet incident involving Iran that was discovered in 2010, and the cyber attacks used as part of the Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election – to demonstrate that an informational approach offers a means to reimagine the state as an entity and cyber attacks as a form of violence against it. This interdisciplinary approach will appeal to an international audience of scholars in international law, international relations, security studies, cyber security, and anyone interested in the issues surrounding emerging technologies.

Justice and Home Affairs is one of the fastest expanding areas of research in European Studies. The European response to security concerns such as terrorism, organised crime networks, and drug trafficking as well as to the challenge of managing migration flows are salient topics of interest to an increasing number of scholars of all disciplines, the media and general public. This handbook takes stock of policy development and academic research in relation to justice and home affairs and analyses the field in an unprecedented thematic depth. The book comprehensively investigates the field from the perspective of the three dimensions central to European integration: the sectoral (policies), the horizontal (states, regions) and the vertical (institutions, decision-making) dimensions. It also discusses the most important theoretical approaches used in this research area and provides the reader with a state of the art picture of the field. By adopting such a comprehensive and broad-based approach, the handbook is uniquely positioned to be an important referent for scholars, practitioners and students interested in the area of justice, home affairs and European politics.

This edited book promotes and facilitates cybercrime research by providing a cutting-edge collection of perspectives on the critical usage of online data across platforms, as well as the implementation of both traditional and innovative analysis methods. The accessibility, variety and wealth of data available online presents substantial opportunities for researchers from different disciplines to study cybercrimes and, more generally, human behavior in cyberspace. The unique and dynamic characteristics of cyberspace often demand cross-disciplinary and cross-national research endeavors, but disciplinary, cultural and legal differences can hinder the ability of researchers to collaborate. This work also provides a review of the ethics associated with the use of online data sources across the globe. The authors are drawn from multiple disciplines and nations, providing unique insights into the value and challenges evident in online data use for cybercrime scholarship. It is a key text for researchers at the upper undergraduate level and above.

This volume contains the 12 papers presented at the WISTP 2009 conference, held in Brussels, Belgium in September 2009. WISTP 2009 was the third int- national workshop devoted to information security theory and practice. WISTP 2009 built on the successful WISTP 2007 and 2008 conferences, held in Heraklion, Crete, Greece and Seville, Spain in May 2007 and May 2008, - spectively. The proceedings of WISTP 2007 and WISTP 2008 were published as volumes 4462 and 5019 of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. This workshop received the following support: – Co-sponsored by IFIP WG 11. 2 Small System Security – Co-sponsored by VDE ITG – Technical sponsorship of the IEEE Systems, Man & Cybernetics Society – Supported by the Technical Committee on Systems Safety and Security – Organized in cooperation with the ACM SIGSAC – Supported by ENISA – Supported by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) These proceedings contain 12 original papers covering a range of theoretical and practical topics in information security. For the purposes of the organi- tion of the WISTP program, the papers were divided into four main categories, namely: – Mobility – Attacks and Secure Implementations – Performance and Security – Cryptography The12papersincludedherewereselectedfromatotalof27submissions.

The primary function of the intelligence analyst is to make sense of information about the world, but the way analysts do that work will look profoundly different a decade from now. Technological changes will bring both new advances in conducting analysis and new risks related to technologically based activities and communications around the world. Because these changes are virtually inevitable, the Intelligence Community will need to make sustained collaboration with researchers in the social and behavioral sciences (SBS) a key priority if it is to adapt to these changes in the most productive ways. A Decadal Survey Of The Social and Behavioral Sciences provides guidance for a 10-year research agenda. This report identifies key opportunities in SBS research for strengthening intelligence analysis and offers ideas for integrating the knowledge and perspectives of researchers from these fields into the planning and design of efforts to support intelligence analysis.

"Cybercrime costs firms USD 1 trillion globally" - Headlines like this released by Reuters news agency on 29th January 2009 tend to regularly dominate international press lately. Surveys indicate that insiders like employees are one of the biggest threats to data security within organisations. As a result of improper account management users accumulate a number of excessive rights over time, resulting in the so called identity chaos. In the course of constantly growing IT infrastructures on the one hand, as well as the legislative regulations and law on the other hand, role-based Identity Management in particular has become a means of solving the identity chaos and meeting data security requirements. However, the central challenge organisations face in this context is how to construct a role catalogue for their Identity Management infrastructure. Some companies deal with this issue by applying predominantly manual procedures based on organisational and operational structures. These approaches are known as Role Engineering methodologies. Throughout the last few years, so-called Role Mining methodologies which use Data Mining techniques that cluster existing access rights of employees have evolved as alternative approaches. Recent findings show that a combination of Role Engineering and Role Mining is necessary to define a good collection of roles. This book gives insight into a hybrid tool-supported methodology for cleansing identity and account data and developing business roles for employees using Role Engineering and Role Mining techniques. Its main goals are to increase the overall user management data quality and support companies throughout a semi-automated process of defining roles. The methodology considers existing employee information and access privileges without neglecting organisational structures and business experts' knowledge about the organisation.
