Next-Generation Enterprise Security and Governance
Internet is making our daily life as digital as possible and this new era is called the Internet of Everything (IoE). The key force behind the rapid growth of the Internet is the technological advances of enterprises. The digital world we live in is facilitated by these enterprises’ advances and business intelligence. Consequently, those enterprises need to deal with gazillions of bytes of data and in today’s age of General Data Protection Regulation, enterprises are required to ensure privacy and security of large-scale data collections. However, the increased connectivity and devices used to facilitate IoE are continually creating more room for cybercriminals to find vulnerabilities in enterprise systems and flaws in their corporate governance.<br />Ahmed M, Moustafa N, Barkat A, Haskell-Dowland PS (Dowland PS)
Ensuring cybersecurity and corporate governance for enterprises should not be an afterthought and a huge challenge. In recent times, the complex diversity of cyber-attacks has been skyrocketing, zero-day attacks are happening more frequently than before, such as ransomware, botnet, telecommunication attacks. New hacking strategies would easily bypass existing enterprise security and governance platforms using advanced persistent threats. For example, in 2020, the Toll group firm was exploited by a new crypto-attack family for violating its data privacy, where an advanced ransomware technique was launched to exploit the big corporations and a request a huge figure of monetary ransom. Even after applying rational governance hygiene, the cybersecurity configuration and software updates are often overlooked when it is most needed to fight cyber-crime and ensure data privacy. Therefore, the threat landscape in the context of enterprises becomes wider and far more challenging. There is a clear need for collaborative work throughout the entire value chain of the network.<br />
In this context, this book will address the cybersecurity and cooperate governance challenges associated with the enterprises, which will provide a bigger picture of the concepts, intelligent techniques, practices, and open research directions in this area. Besides, the proposed book will serve as a single source of reference for acquiring the knowledge on the technology, process and people involved in the next-generation privacy and security.
