Cybersecurity experts from across industries and sectors share insights on how to think like scientists to master cybersecurity challenges. This innovative text adopts a scientific approach to cybersecurity, identifying the science’s fundamental elements and examining how these elements intersect and interact with each other. Author Phil Quade distills his over three decades of cyber intelligence, defense, and attack experience into an accessible, yet detailed, single-volume resource.
Designed for non-specialist business leaders and cybersecurity practitioners alike, this authoritative book is packed with real-world examples, techniques, and strategies no organization should be without. Contributions from many of the world’s leading cybersecurity experts and policymakers enable readers to firmly grasp vital cybersecurity concepts, methods, and practices.
Humankind’s efforts to explain the origin of the cosmos birthed disciplines such as physics and chemistry. Scientists conceived of the cosmic ‘Big Bang’ as an explosion of particles—everything in the universe centered around core elements and governed by laws of matter and gravity. In the modern era of digital technology, we are experiencing a similar explosion of ones and zeros, an exponentially expanding universe of bits of data centered around the core elements of speed and connectivity. One of the disciplines to emerge from our efforts to make sense of this new universe is the science of cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is as central to the Digital Age as physics and chemistry were to the Scientific Age. The Digital Big Bang explores current and emerging knowledge in the field of cybersecurity, helping readers think like scientists to master cybersecurity principles and overcome cybersecurity challenges.
While many outside the fields of security and information technology still talk of greater levels of digital connection in the context of human beings communicating with one another, chief information security officer (CISOs) and their teams understand that that is merely a small, visible ripple on the very surface of today's hyperconnected world. Things and machines connecting with each other is the bigger picture of connectivity—which gets exponentially bigger each day and now borders on the immeasurable and the unimaginable. And, as many IT teams can attest, it is also increasingly unmanageable—at least by people alone, anyway.
That's because, as the Internet of Things (IoT) grows, the majority of connectivity today occurs between devices. With aims of greater efficiency, cost savings, and convenience, everything from cameras to lightbulbs to household appliances is being augmented with digital capabilities, allowing these things to connect to the Internet and to each other to share relevant information.
Many IoT devices can be easily compromised to gain access to a network, or they can be chained together to create a huge increase in attack power. Layer in cloud services for managing these devices, and what results is a level of vulnerability that is ripe for attack. Because of the minimal security of the devices themselves, that attack can be incredibly destructive with little expertise required. You don't need to be a civil engineer to topple dominos, and you don't need to be a master cybercriminal to harness the IoT into a botnet.
