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.
Security requirements engineering is especially challenging because designers must consider not just the software under design but also interactions among people, organizations, hardware, and software. Taking this broader perspective means designing a secure socio-technical system rather than a merely technical system. This book presents a novel, model-driven approach to designing secure socio-technical systems. It introduces the Socio-Technical Modeling Language (STS-ML) and presents a freely available software tool, STS-Tool, that supports this design approach through graphical modeling, automated reasoning capabilities to verify the models constructed, and the automatic derivation of security requirements documents. After an introduction to security requirements engineering and an overview of computer and information security, the book presents the STS-ML modeling language, introducing the modeling concepts used, explaining how to use STS-ML within the STS method for security requirements, and providing guidelines for the creation of models. The book then puts the STS approach into practice, introducing the STS-Tool and presenting two case studies from industry: an online collaborative platform and an e-Government system. Finally, the book considers other methods that can be used in conjunction with the STS method or that constitute an alternative to it. The book is suitable for course use or as a reference for practitioners. Exercises, review questions, and problems appear at the end of each chapter.
