A Guide to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (2.0)

A Guide to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework (2.0) presents a comprehensive discussion of the tasks, knowledge, skill, and ability (KSA) requirements of the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework 2.0. It discusses in detail the relationship between the NICE framework and the NIST’s cybersecurity framework (CSF), showing how the NICE model specifies what the particular specialty areas of the workforce should be doing in order to ensure that the CSF’s identification, protection, defense, response, or recovery functions are being carried out properly. The authors construct a detailed picture of the proper organization and conduct of a strategic infrastructure security operation, describing how these two frameworks provide an explicit definition of the field of cybersecurity. The book is unique in that it is based on well-accepted standard recommendations rather than presumed expertise. It is the first book to align with and explain the requirements of a national-level initiative to standardize the study of information security. Moreover, it contains knowledge elements that represent the first fully validated and authoritative body of knowledge (BOK) in cybersecurity. The book is divided into two parts: The first part is comprised of three chapters that give you a comprehensive understanding of the structure and intent of the NICE model, its various elements, and their detailed contents. The second part contains seven chapters that introduce you to each knowledge area individually. Together, these parts help you build a comprehensive understanding of how to organize and execute a cybersecurity workforce definition using standard best practice.

Data-Driven Security: Analysis, Visualization and Dashboards

Everything in the book will have practical application for information security professionals. The entire purpose of data analysis and visualization is to gather feedback from the environment to make better and more informed technology decisions. Within information security that means identifying ways to prevent or detect breaches and then measuring the effectiveness in doing so, which is all wrapped up under “risk management.” All of the examples will be directed at answering real-world questions. One of the key points is not just to analyze what is in front of us, but collect and analyze the data we need to answer the questions that will lead to better decisions and prevention of hacks and vulnerabilities.

The book will present the core elements of analyzing I.T. system data and information security feedback by using 30 use cases and domain-specific data sets with a focus on practical “how-to.” This hands-on approach will be covered in context and will not be limited to just the analysis, but all the supporting skills needed to learn from our data. Data analysis from start to finish: from the data collection and preparation through the data storage and management fundamentals then into the analysis and finally data visualization and communication techniques all in the context of security.Use cases will include: Discovering anomalous firewall trafficHow to acquire and prepare security dataCreating a repeatable data analysis toolkit and workflowWhitehat stats reportSecurity event correlationVulnerability countsUsing inferential stats to detect malware outbreaksVisualizing system logsMapping BotnetsUsing NLP and Data Loss PreventionPredicting rogue behaviorHow to perform predictive analytics.

Framing Internet Safety: The Governance of Youth Online (The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Series on Digital Media and Learning)

Since the beginning of the Internet era, it has become almost impossible to discuss youth and technology without mentioning online danger — pornography that is just a click away, lurking sexual predators, and inescapable cyberbullies. In this book, Nathan Fisk takes an innovative approach to the subject, examining youth Internet safety as a technology of governance — for information technologies and, by extension, for the forms of sociality and society they make possible. He argues that it is through the mobilization of various discourses of online risk that the everyday lives of youth are increasingly monitored and policed and the governing potentials of information technologies are explored. Fisk relates particular panics over youth Internet safety to patterns of technological adoption by young people, focusing on the policy response at the federal level aimed at producing future cybercitizens. He describes pedagogies of surveillance, which position parents as agents of surveillance; the evolution of the youth Internet safety curricula, as seen through materials on cyberbullying and online reputation management; and, drawing on survey results and focus groups, parent and child everyday practice. Finally, Fisk offers recommendations for a “cybersafety of everyday life,” connecting youth Internet safety to trends in national infrastructure protection and corporate information assurance.

Fraud Analytics Using Descriptive, Predictive, and Social Network Techniques: A Guide to Data Science for Fraud Detection (Wiley and SAS Business Series) 1st Edition

Detect fraud earlier to mitigate loss and prevent cascading damage Fraud Analytics Using Descriptive, Predictive, and Social Network Techniques is an authoritative guidebook for setting up a comprehensive fraud detection analytics solution. Early detection is a key factor in mitigating fraud damage, but it involves more specialized techniques than detecting fraud at the more advanced stages. This invaluable guide details both the theory and technical aspects of these techniques, and provides expert insight into streamlining implementation. Coverage includes data gathering, preprocessing, model building, and post-implementation, with comprehensive guidance on various learning techniques and the data types utilized by each. These techniques are effective for fraud detection across industry boundaries, including applications in insurance fraud, credit card fraud, anti-money laundering, healthcare fraud, telecommunications fraud, click fraud, tax evasion, and more, giving you a highly practical framework for fraud prevention. It is estimated that a typical organization loses about 5% of its revenue to fraud every year. More effective fraud detection is possible, and this book describes the various analytical techniques your organization must implement to put a stop to the revenue leak. * Examine fraud patterns in historical data * Utilize labeled, unlabeled, and networked data * Detect fraud before the damage cascades * Reduce losses, increase recovery, and tighten security The longer fraud is allowed to go on, the more harm it causes. It expands exponentially, sending ripples of damage throughout the organization, and becomes more and more complex to track, stop, and reverse. Fraud prevention relies on early and effective fraud detection, enabled by the techniques discussed here. Fraud Analytics Using Descriptive, Predictive, and Social Network Techniques helps you stop fraud in its tracks, and eliminate the opportunities for future occurrence.
