About this book

Insider Attack and Cyber Security: Beyond the Hacker defines the nature and scope of the insider attack problem as viewed by the financial industry. This edited volume is based on the first workshop on Insider Attack and Cyber Security, IACS 2007. The workshop was a joint effort from the Computer Science Departments of Columbia University and Dartmouth College.

This book sets an agenda for an ongoing research initiative to solve one of the most vexing problems encountered in computer security, and includes the following topics: critical IT infrastructure protection, insider threats, awareness and dealing with nefarious human activities in a manner that respects individual liberties and privacy policies of organizations while providing the best protection of critical resources and services. In some sense, the insider problem is the ultimate security problem. This volume concludes with technical and legal challenges facing researchers who study and propose solutions to mitigate insider attacks.

Insider Attack and Cyber Security: Beyond the Hacker is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. It is also suitable as an advanced-level text or reference book for students in computer science and electrical engineering.
