Doctrine for Cybersecurity

Doctrine for Cybersecurity

Governments, business, and individuals are growing increasingly concerned about the security of networked computing tems. This concern is justified. Press reports of successful attacks grow ever more frequent: cross-site scripting used to pilfer consumers´ passwords, large-scale breaches of corporate customers´ personal information, massive distributed denial of service attacks on web sites, cyber espionage aimed at classified documents, and all manner of attacks on civil critical infrastructures. Computer Scientists and those who fund them are, consequently, investing heavily in technological means for improving cybersecurity. But technological solutions are useless if they are not deployed or if operating practices allow them to be circumvented by attackers. Policy must incentives for tem developers, operators, and users to act in ways that enhance rather than weaken tem security.
A must-read for those interested in how a public health model can be applied to cyber-security.
