Also discussed in depth is the value technology adds and the role it plays in the decision-making process.
Like the first edition, this book focuses on security issues with the intent of increasing the public's awareness of the magnitude of cyber vandalism, the weaknesses and loopholes inherent in the cyberspace infrastructure, and the ways to protect ourselves and our societies. The goal is public understanding of the nature and motives of cyber acts, how such acts are committed, and the efforts being undertaken to prevent future occurrences.
