About this book


Recent advances in technology and new software applications are steadily transforming human civilization into what is called the Information Society. This is manifested by the new terminology appearing in our daily activities. E-Business, E-Government, E-Learning, E-Contracting, and E-Voting are just a few of the ever-growing list of new terms that are shaping the Information Society. Nonetheless, as "Information" gains more prominence in our society, the task of securing it against all forms of threats becomes a vital and crucial undertaking.

Addressing the various security issues confronting our new Information Society, this volume is divided into 13 parts covering the following topics:

  • Information Security Management;
  • Standards of Information Security;
  • Threats and Attacks to Information;
  • Education and Curriculum for Information Security;
  • Social and Ethical Aspects of Information Security;
  • Information Security Services;
  • Multilateral Security;
  • Applications of Information Security;
  • Infrastructure for Information Security
  • Advanced Topics in Security;
  • Legislation for Information Security;
  • Modeling and Analysis for Information Security;
  • Tools for Information Security.
