Mike Mitchell, an average New Yorker already struggling to keep his family together, suddenly finds himself fighting just to keep them alive when an increasingly bizarre string of disasters starts appearing on the world's news networks. As both the real world and the cyberworld come crashing down, bending perception and reality, a monster snowstorm cuts New York off from the world, turning it into a wintry tomb where nothing is what it seems.
In this prescient thriller about an all-too-possible scenario, a man fights to keep his family alive when a cyberworld meltdown and fierce storms cut New York City off from the world. Mike Mitchell is an average New Yorker living in an apartment in Chelsea, struggling to keep his family together. When the Internet goes down, he suddenly finds himself fighting just to keep them alive. The electricity and power supplies fade in and out, and the explanations offered by the authorities are vague and untrustworthy. A string of increasingly bizarre disasters starts appearing on the world’s news networks, and a monster snowstorm hits New York City before Christmas. Mike and his close friends and family hunker down in their apartment building for safety, organizing and rationing food and water. Outside, the boundaries between lawful and criminal behaviour break down as resources become scarce. With the threat to their safety growing, Mike and his family pin their hopes on fleeing the city for the countryside. But as the world and cyberworld come crashing down, New York is suddenly cut off, turning the city into a wintry tomb where nothing is what it seems, and where no one can be trusted . . .

Cyber Storm (CS), the Department's capstone national-level cyber exercise series, provides the framework for the most extensive government-sponsored cybersecurity exercises of its kind. Mandated by Congress, these exercises are part of the Department's ongoing efforts to assess and strengthen cyber preparedness and examine incident response processes. DHS uses the findings from these exercises to advance collective cyber incident response capabilities. They also strengthen information sharing partnerships among federal, state, international, and private sector partners. Players responded to a cyber-specific scenario that leveraged weaknesses in common protocols and services used on the Internet. The scenario included impacts to routing methodology, the Domain Name System (DNS) used to map hostnames to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) used to provide authentication and confidentiality. Scenario conditions affected a wide variety of corporate and government systems, medical devices, and payment systems.

The Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) National Cyber Security Division (NCSD) held Cyber Storm III (CS III), a comprehensive and dynamic cybersecurity exercise from September 27 through October 1, 2010. Cyber Storm is the DHS' capstone national-level. This biennial event represents the Nation's most extensive cybersecurity exercise of its kind and is an element of ongoing efforts to assess cybersecurity preparedness; examine incident response processes, procedures, and information sharing mechanisms; and identify areas for improvement - absent the consequences of an actual incident. This national-level exercise included participation from eight Cabinet-level departments, 13 states, 12 international partners, and 60 private sector companies and coordination bodies. Together, these entities participated in the design, execution, and post-exercise analysis of the largest, most comprehensive government-led, full-scale cyber exercise to date.

This study examines what the military should do to be resilient against cyber attacks. Its basis rests on two major assumptions. First, it assumes the United States' adversaries will attempt to use attacks against the military. Second, it assumes some of these attacks will be successful despite established defenses. The military must be prepared to continue its mission despite cyber attacks."--Abstract.

As new technologies develop, terrorist groups are developing new methods of attack by using the Internet, and by using cyberspace as a battlefield, it has become increasingly difficult to discover the identity of attackers and bring them to justice. The seemingly limitless boundaries of cyberspace has allowed virtually anyone to launch an attack from a remote and anonymous location. But once these attacks occur, it raises several important questions; who should respond, and how?; how should nation-states effectively deal with a cyber-attack?; and will the United States and other nation-states be able to survive in a world where virtual boundaries are limitless? In Cyberthreats: The Emerging Fault Lines of the Nation State Susan Brenner gives a thorough explanation of how military and law enforcement personnel respond to these attacks and why bringing cyber-terrorist to justice can be difficult and sometimes impossible.

The Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) is the focal point for the security of cyberspace. DHS is required to coordinate cyber attack exercises to strengthen public and private incident response capabilities. One major exercise program, called Cyber Storm, is a large-scale simulation of multiple concurrent cyber attacks involving the fed. gov¿t., states, foreign gov¿ts., and private industry. DHS has conducted Cyber Storm exercises in 2006 and 2008. This report: (1) identifies the lessons that DHS learned from the first Cyber Storm exercise; (2) assesses DHS¿s efforts to address the lessons learned from this exercise; and (3) identifies key participants¿ views of their experiences during the second Cyber Storm exercise. Includes recommendations. Illus.
Hacking Wireless Access Points: Cracking, Tracking, and Signal Jacking provides readers with a deeper understanding of the hacking threats that exist with mobile phones, laptops, routers, and navigation systems. In addition, applications for Bluetooth and near field communication (NFC) technology continue to multiply, with athletic shoes, heart rate monitors, fitness sensors, cameras, printers, headsets, fitness trackers, household appliances, and the number and types of wireless devices all continuing to increase dramatically. The book demonstrates a variety of ways that these vulnerabilities can be—and have been—exploited, and how the unfortunate consequences of such exploitations can be mitigated through the responsible use of technology. Explains how the wireless access points in common, everyday devices can expose us to hacks and threats Teaches how wireless access points can be hacked, also providing the techniques necessary to protect and defend data Presents concrete examples and real-world guidance on how to protect against wireless access point attacks

Cyber Attacks, Student Edition, offers a technical, architectural, and management approach to solving the problems of protecting national infrastructure. This approach includes controversial themes such as the deliberate use of deception to trap intruders. This volume thus serves as an attractive framework for a new national strategy for cyber security. A specific set of criteria requirements allows any organization, such as a government agency, to integrate the principles into their local environment. In this edition, each principle is presented as a separate security strategy and illustrated with compelling examples. The book adds 50-75 pages of new material aimed specifically at enhancing the student experience and making it more attractive for instructors teaching courses such as cyber security, information security, digital security, national security, intelligence studies, technology and infrastructure protection. It now also features case studies illustrating actual implementation scenarios of the principles and requirements discussed in the text, along with a host of new pedagogical elements, including chapter outlines, chapter summaries, learning checklists, and a 2-color interior. Furthermore, a new and complete ancillary package includes test bank, lesson plans, PowerPoint slides, case study questions, and more. This text is intended for security practitioners and military personnel as well as for students wishing to become security engineers, network operators, software designers, technology managers, application developers, etc. Provides case studies focusing on cyber security challenges and solutions to display how theory, research, and methods, apply to real-life challenges Utilizes, end-of-chapter case problems that take chapter content and relate it to real security situations and issues Includes instructor slides for each chapter as well as an instructor’s manual with sample syllabi and test bank
