Das Thema Cybersecurity ist so aktuell wie nie, denn im Cyberspace lassen sich nur schwer Grenzen in Bezug auf den Zugang zu Informationen, Daten und Redefreiheit setzen. Kriminelle nutzen die Lücken oft zu ihrem Vorteil aus. Die Vielzahl der IT-Systeme, ihre unterschiedlichen Nutzungsarten und ihre Innovations- und Lebenszyklen haben zu hohen Sicherheitsrisiken für Unternehmen und staatliche Einrichtungen geführt. Diese Risiken werden sich auch langfristig nicht so einfach aus der Welt schaffen lassen. Daher müssen Institutionen Strategien und Lösungen zu ihrem Selbstschutz entwickeln. Dieses Buch beschreibt Lösungsansätze und Best Practices aus den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen, die nachweislich zu einer höheren Resilienz gegenüber Cyberangriffen führen. Weltweit renommierte IT-Sicherheitsexperten berichten in 40 Beiträgen, wie sich staatliche Institutionen, unter anderem das Militär (Cyber Defence), Behörden, internationale Organisationen und Unternehmen besser gegen Cyberangriffe schützen und nachhaltige Schutzstrategien entwickeln können. Die Autoren widmen sich den Gründen und Zielen, die ihren jeweiligen Strategien zugrunde liegen, sie berichten, wie Unternehmen auf konkrete Cyberattacken reagiert haben und wie einzelne staatliche Institutionen angesichts nationaler Cyberstrategien agieren. In weiteren Kapiteln zeigen Wissenschaftler auf, was bei der Abwehr von Cyber-Attacken bereits heute möglich ist, welche Entwicklungen in Arbeit sind und wie diese in Zukunft eingesetzt werden können, um die Cyber-Sicherheit zu erhöhen. Im letzten Kapitel berichten Hersteller, Anwenderunternehmen und Dienstleister welche Best Practices sie in ihren Unternehmen eingeführt haben und wie andere Unternehmen ihrem Beispiel folgen können. Das Buch richtet sich an IT-Verantwortliche und -Sicherheitsbeauftragte in Unternehmen und anderen Organisationen, aber auch an Studierende in den verschiedenen IT-Studiengängen.

Cybersecurity Key Legal Considerations for the Aviation and Space Sectors Federico Bergamasco, Roberto Cassar, Rada Popova & Benjamyn I. Scott As the aviation and space sectors become ever more connected to cyberspace and reliant on related technology, they become more vulnerable to potential cyberattacks. As a result, cybersecurity is a growing concern that all stakeholders in both sectors must consider. In this forward-looking book, which is the first comprehensive analysis of the relevant facets of cybersecurity in the aviation and space sectors, the authors explore the vast spectrum of relevant international and European Union (EU) law, with specific attention to associated risks, existing legal provisions and the potential development of new rules. Beginning with an overview of the different types of malicious cyber operations, the book proceeds to set the terminological landscape relevant to its core theme. It takes a top-down approach by first analysing general international and EU law related to cybersecurity, then moving to the more specific aspects of the aviation and space sectors, including telecommunications. Finally, the salient features of these analyses are combined with the practical realities in the relevant industries, giving due regard to legal and regulatory initiatives, industry standards and best practices. The broad range of issues and topics covered includes the following and more: whether the various facets of the international law on conflict apply in cyberspace and to cyberattacks; substantial policy and regulatory developments taking place at the EU level, including the activities of its relevant institutions, bodies and entities; jurisdiction and attributability issues relevant to cybersecurity in the aviation and space sectors; vulnerability of space systems, including large constellations, to malicious cyber activities and electromagnetic interference; various challenges for critical infrastructure resulting from, e.g., its interdependency, cross-border nature, public-private ownership and dual civil-military uses; safety and security in international air transportation, with special attention to the Chicago Convention and its Annexes; aviation liability and compensation in cases of cyberattacks, and insurance coverage against cyber risks; review of malicious relevant actors, malicious cyber operations, the typical life cycle of a cyberattack and industry responses. This book clearly responds to the need to elaborate adequate legal rules for ensuring that the multiple inlets for malicious cyber operations and the management of cybersecurity risks are addressed appropriately. It will be welcomed by all parties involved with aviation and space law and policy, including lawyers, governments, regulators, academics, manufacturers, operators, airports, and international governmental and non-governmental organisations.

Cybersecurity has been gaining serious attention and recently has become an important topic of concern for organizations, government institutions, and largely for people interacting with digital online systems. As many individual and organizational activities continue to grow and are conducted in the digital environment, new vulnerabilities have arisen which have led to cybersecurity threats. The nature, source, reasons, and sophistication for cyberattacks are not clearly known or understood, and many times invisible cyber attackers are never traced or can never be found. Cyberattacks can only be known once the attack and the destruction have already taken place long after the attackers have left. Cybersecurity for computer systems has increasingly become important because the government, military, corporate, financial, critical infrastructure, and medical organizations rely heavily on digital network systems, which process and store large volumes of data on computer devices that are exchanged on the internet, and they are vulnerable to “continuous” cyberattacks. As cybersecurity has become a global concern, it needs to be clearly understood, and innovative solutions are required. The Handbook of Research on Advancing Cybersecurity for Digital Transformation looks deeper into issues, problems, and innovative solutions and strategies that are linked to cybersecurity. This book will provide important knowledge that can impact the improvement of cybersecurity, which can add value in terms of innovation to solving cybersecurity threats. The chapters cover cybersecurity challenges, technologies, and solutions in the context of different industries and different types of threats. This book is ideal for cybersecurity researchers, professionals, scientists, scholars, and managers, as well as practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students interested in the latest advancements in cybersecurity for digital transformation.

Digitalization has taken a predominant role in the Netherlands. The Netherlands considers itself one of the leading ICT countries, promotes itself as ‘a safe place to do business’ and aspires to be the digital gateway of Europe. This report will first estimate the current and prospective size of the Dutch digital economy and the ICT sector, and later analyze how much the latter contributes to the national economy. Next, we provide a holistic overview of the current level of public and private investments in cybersecurity, followed by an analysis estimating the Dutch cybersecurity market by comparing different studies. Taking into account the 1,5% loss of its national GDP to cybercrime, which correlates well to the €10bn value loss through cyber risk in the Netherlands, the Dutch private sector, and especially the government, can invest more in cybersecurity to reduce the impact and damage cybercrime and –risks. In addition, there is a drastic increase in demand anticipated for cybersecurity experts and IoT developers. As a result, when this is solved, one might conclude that the investments in cybersecurity will exceed the 10% norm. This research is directed to the National Cyber Testbed Initiative of The Hague Security Delta (December 2016).

The chemical process industry is a rich target for cyber attackers who are intent on causing harm. Current risk management techniques are based on the premise that events are initiated by a single failure and the succeeding sequence of events is predictable. A cyberattack on the Safety, Controls, Alarms, and Interlocks (SCAI) undermines this basic assumption. Each facility should have a Cybersecurity Policy, Implementation Plan and Threat Response Plan in place. The response plan should address how to bring the process to a safe state when controls and safety systems are compromised. The emergency response plan should be updated to reflect different actions that may be appropriate in a sabotage situation. IT professionals, even those working at chemical facilities are primarily focused on the risk to business systems. This book contains guidelines for companies on how to improve their process safety performance by applying Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS) concepts and techniques to the problem of cybersecurity.
