Description

As computer networks spread throughout the globe and as technology advances, we are increasingly dependent upon these networks to initiate and complete our daily tasks. However, in this steadily evolving environment, the privacy, security, reliability, and integrity of online content is tested continuously.

Securing the Information Infrastructure provides a framework for building trust in computer technology by exploring an array of safeguards that can be used to uphold the integrity and reliability of computing systems. This book challenges readers to examine rapid advances in information technology to recognize its misuse in society, covering such pressing topics as computer ethics, computer network security, and computer forensics.

This kind of approach to the information infrastructure that can be trusted by all of its users and, hence, will be secured for all of us and our children to come.

– Joseph Kizza, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga, USA

This volume discusses security protocols and practices for the current information infrastructure. It surveys issues such as moral and ethical education and security, privacy, and anonymity and their effects on the creation of an ethical framework for decision making.

– Books News Inc . (2008)

The book's 17 chapters have a consistent style: an introduction describing what will be presented, often followed by relevant definitions, then the body of the chapter, a summary conclusion, and references.
