Cryptography and Network Security: Principles and Practice 7th Global Edition
For courses in Cryptography, Computer Security, and Network Security The Principles and Practice of Cryptography and Network Security Stallings’ Cryptography and Network Security, Seventh Edition, introduces students to the compelling and evolving field of cryptography and network security. In an age of viruses and hackers, electronic eavesdropping, and electronic fraud on a global scale, security is paramount. The purpose of this book is to provide a practical survey of both the principles and practice of cryptography and network security. In the first part of the book, the basic issues to be addressed by a network security capability are explored by providing a tutorial and survey of cryptography and network security technology. The latter part of the book deals with the practice of network security: practical applications that have been implemented and are in use to provide network security. The Seventh Edition streamlines subject matter with new and updated material – including Sage, one of the most important features of the book. Sage is an open-source, multiplatform, freeware package that implements a very powerful, flexible, and easily learned mathematics and computer algebra system. It provides hands-on experience with cryptographic algorithms and supporting homework assignments. With Sage, students learn a powerful tool that can be used for virtually any mathematical application. The book also provides an unparalleled degree of support for instructors and students to ensure a successful teaching and learning experience.

Electronically Stored Information: The Complete Guide to Management, Understanding, Acquisition, Storage, Search, and Retrieval 2nd Edition
Although we live in an era in which we are surrounded by an ever-deepening fog of data, few of us truly understand how the data are created, where data are stored, or how to retrieve or destroy data-if that is indeed possible. This book is for all of you, whatever your need or interest. Electronically Stored Information: The Complete Guide to Management, Understanding, Acquisition, Storage, Search, and Retrieval, Second Edition explains the reasons you need to know about electronic data. It also gets into great detail about the how, what, when, and where of what is known in legal circles as electronically stored information (ESI). With easy-to-understand explanations and guidelines, this book provides the practical understanding you need to effectively manage the complex world of ESI. Whether you are an attorney, judge, paralegal, business manager or owner, or just one of the ever-growing population of computer users, you will benefit from the information presented in this book.
About the Author
David Matthews has worked in the information technology (IT) field since 1992. He began working for the City of Seattle as the technology manager for the Legislative Department (City Council) in 1998. In early 2005, he was selected to be the first Deputy CISO for the city. In his work for the city, he developed and created an incident response plan that is compliant with the National Incident Management System (NIMS)/Incident Command System (ICS); updated and extensively rewrote the city’s information security policy; and created and taught training courses on information security and forensics. He created an IT primer for the city’s law department as part of his collaboration with them on e-discovery issues. In 2012, he was recruited by Expedia, Inc. to develop and lead their global cyber incident response team. He created and exercised a plan that integrated with their network response and disaster recovery plans and led a team located both in the United States and India. He retired in 2014 and is now doing consultant work mostly with local governments and critical infrastructure to enhance their cyber response and resiliency capabilities.
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.

Memory forensics provides cutting edge technology to help investigate digital attacks Memory forensics is the art of analyzing computer memory (RAM) to solve digital crimes. As a follow-up to the best seller Malware Analyst’s Cookbook, experts in the fields of malware, security, and digital forensics bring you a step-by-step guide to memory forensics-now the most sought after skill in the digital forensics and incident response fields. Beginning with introductory concepts and moving toward the advanced, The Art of Memory Forensics: Detecting Malware and Threats in Windows, Linux, and Mac Memory is based on a five day training course that the authors have presented to hundreds of students. It is the only book on the market that focuses exclusively on memory forensics and how to deploy such techniques properly. Discover memory forensics techniques: How volatile memory analysis improves digital investigations Proper investigative steps for detecting stealth malware and advanced threats How to use free, open source tools for conducting thorough memory forensics Ways to acquire memory from suspect systems in a forensically sound manner The next era of malware and security breaches are more sophisticated and targeted, and the volatile memory of a computer is often overlooked or destroyed as part of the incident response process. The Art of Memory Forensics explains the latest technological innovations in digital forensics to help bridge this gap. It covers the most popular and recently released versions of Windows, Linux, and Mac, including both the 32 and 64-bit editions. Bonus materials include more than 20 real-world exercises, sample memory and code files, and even a formal presentation, syllabus, and test bank.
