Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book is an edited volume of nine papers by respected authorities--for example, Peter Neumann--in computing. … The contributions are well written, thorough, and, most importantly, up to date. Each paper includes extensive references, including many from 2010. The intended audience includes graduate students, computer science researchers, and technical professionals on the cutting edge. In short, this book is an excellent contribution to the field.” (David Bellin, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2011)

“This edited book provides a timely summary of recent research and development results in this area of insider-related cyber security issues, which, hopefully, will enable the reader to incorporate insider threats into his/her business decision making processes, and identify avenues for risk reduction. … this book is an important work for academics, policy makers, and practitioners as it is a step toward a better understanding of the recent research and trends in insider threats … .” (Kim-Kwang Raymond Choo, SIGACT News, April, 2012)
