Abstract

In the information society, technology has become ubiquitous, but its intrinsic vulnerabilities and the complexity of managing mission-critical systems create an attractive target for potential attackers. Law, Policy, and Technology: Cyberterorrism, Information Warfare, and Internet Immobilization provides relevant frameworks and best practices as well as current empirical research findings in the area. It is aimed at professionals who want to improve their understanding of the impact of cyber-attacks on critical infrastructures and other information systems essential to the smooth running of society, how such attacks are carried out, what measures should be taken to mitigate their impact and what lessons can be learned from the attacks and simulations of the last few years.
