Description of this Book

This book takes a much needed look at cybersecurity from a challenging, geopolitical perspective. Through this lens, it seeks to broaden the reader's understanding of the legal and political considerations of individuals, corporations, law enforcement and regulatory bodies and management of the complex relationships between them. In drawing on subject matter experts from different fields in the US, Israel, and Europe, the book presents the reader with dilemmas and paradigms that confront law makers, corporate leaders, law enforcement, and national leaders.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 'This book provides a fresh and novel perspective on the complex phenomenon that we term cyberspace. Because of the rise of the world-wide-web as the human communication medium of choice, the internet is no longer a personal, or national space. It embraces us all in a single social bond that has to be both explicated and understood. This is not a nice to know situation. It is one that will inevitably require every single individual on this planet to understand how they fit in. This book starts that important conversation and in many ways it is the entry point to reaching that new understanding of borderless, in many cases anonymous and even cultureless human interaction. Careful attention ought to be paid to the concerns raised here. And ideas for dealing with them developed.'-Professor Daniel Shoemaker, Center for Cyber Security and Intelligence Studies, University of Detroit, Mercy, USA 'The application of formidable experience and expertise to the scary world of cybersecurity is the hallmark of this book. Amos Guiora provides a lively and original approach to delineating this new frontier. He offers illuminating explanations of the threats and devises multi-tiered responses, all firmly grounded in real life situations. His combination of analysis and pragmatism make study of this book a highly rewarding experience.'-- Professor Emeritus Clive Walker, University of Leeds, UK 'Global Perspectives on Cyber-Security is both timely and insightful. Amos Guiora has done an outstanding job in creating a must-read volume for professionals, law enforcement, policy makers and anyone concerned with the challenges cyber terrorism and cyber crime pose to our increasingly data-driven, interconnected and interdependent society.'--Michael F. Shapiro, Executive Director, National Cyber Partnership, USA
