Reviews and Testimonials
While there are numerous benefits to be gained from the gradual convergence of cloud services, smart grid (the evolving intelligent electric grid), and mobile telecommunications, the changes they bring to the technology environment also open up that environment to new security vulnerabilities. In response, the contributors explore critical infrastructure, mitigation of and protection against attacks, and failure-recovery emergency response policy creation at both national and international levels. Topics addressed include: security threats and risks of intelligent building systems, detecting cyber attacks on SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) and other critical infrastructures, industrial control systems, assessing critical infrastructure in terms of cyber threats and protections, designing a security audit plan, fortifying large-scale networks, and more. Editors are Laing and Vickers (Northumbria U., UK), Badii (U. of Reading, UK).
