Cybersecurity challenges have become one of the deﬁning issues of our time. These challenges include denial of service, theft and/or manipulation of data.
Damage to critical infrastructure through cyber-based attacks will have a signiﬁcant impact on national security, the economy, and the livelihood and safety of governments and individual citizens throughout the world.
We, therefore, dedicate this book to the men and women, including the authors of the manuscripts in this volume, who have devoted their lives and careers to protecting society against these cyber threats.
We would like to extend a special acknowledgment to the men and women of the US Government Accountability Ofﬁce (US GAO), who provide an enormous service to the citizens of the United States and the world through their objective and insightful studies. We have utilized many of their cyber-security studies as background for this book.
Challenges with cyber security have the potential for becoming one of the deﬁning issues of our time. In 2009, the President of the United States (US) declared cyber-threats to be among “the most serious economic and national security challenges we face as a nation” and stated that “America’s economic prosperity in the twenty-ﬁrst century will depend on cyber-security.”
