This book stresses the global nature of cyber security problems; in doing so, each chapter provides an analysis of specific threats facing society with proposed solutions. Ultimately, this book will facilitate international cooperation to help build a more secure future in cyberspace.

– Kenneth J. Knapp, U.S. Air Force Academy, USA

Each chapter has gone through a double blind review, with contributors responding to comments from at least three external reviewers.

– Book News Inc. (June 2009)

The book has several great qualities. First, it contains an excellent set of papers that are well written, current, and accurate. Second, the authors are from all over the world and the book, therefore, truly has a global point of view. From a format perspective, the compilation of each chapters' reference list into a single bibliography at the end of the book is a great touch and extraordinarily useful, and the index is outstanding.

– Reviewed by Gary C. Kessler, Champlain College USA
