Ransomware Revolution: The Rise of a Prodigious Cyber Threat (Advances in Information Security, 85)

Buy

This book explores the genesis of ransomware and how the parallel emergence of encryption technologies has elevated ransomware to become the most prodigious cyber threat that enterprises are confronting. It also investigates the driving forces behind what has been dubbed the ‘ransomware revolution’ after a series of major attacks beginning in 2013, and how the advent of cryptocurrencies provided the catalyst for the development and increased profitability of ransomware, sparking a phenomenal rise in the number and complexity of ransomware attacks. 

This book analyzes why the speed of technology adoption has been a fundamental factor in the continued success of financially motivated cybercrime, and how the ease of public access to advanced encryption techniques has allowed malicious actors to continue to operate with increased anonymity across the internet. This anonymity has enabled increased collaboration between attackers, which has aided the development of new ransomware attacks, and led to an increasing level of technical complexity in ransomware attacks. This book highlights that the continuous expansion and early adoption of emerging technologies may be beyond the capacity of conventional risk managers and risk management frameworks.

Researchers and advanced level students studying or working in computer science, business or criminology will find this book useful as a reference or secondary text.  Professionals working in cybersecurity, cryptography, information technology, financial crime (and other related topics) will also welcome this book as a reference.

Advanced Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 (Mps)

When we originally approached Microsoft Press with the idea of writing an advanced Visual Basic book that was a bit different from the rest, we wondered what reaction we'd get. We were particularly keen on incorporating three features:

  • The book was to be a focused collection of the writings and opinions of many individuals....
Systematic Design for Emergence in Cellular Nonlinear Networks: With Applications in Natural Computing and Signal Processing-
Systematic Design for Emergence in Cellular Nonlinear Networks: With Applications in Natural Computing and Signal Processing-
The main problem addressed in this book came out during a Fulbright research fellowship stage at U.C. Berkeley (California, USA, 1996–1998). Then, I had the opportunity to work in the research group of Leon Chua on a subject called CNN (cellular neural/nonlinear network). The CNN, developed in the end of the 1980s was an important step ahead...

Face Processing: Advanced Modeling and Methods
Face Processing: Advanced Modeling and Methods
As one of the most important applications of image analysis and understanding, face recognition has recently received significant attention, especially during the past 10 years. There are at least two reasons for this trend: the first is the wide range of commercial and law-enforcement applications, and the second is the availability of feasible...
