Sécurité et espionnage informatique by Cédric Pernet Summary

Les attaques informatiques ciblées d'entreprises dans un but d'espionnage industriel, plus connues dans le milieu de la sécurité informatique sous le nom d'APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) sont fortement médiatisées outre-Atlantique. Qui les organisent ? Comment fonctionnent-elles ? Comment les détecter ? APT : des attaques toujours plus difficiles à détecter Les attaques APT sont des attaques informatiques menées contre des entreprises afin de dérober des informations sensibles et/ou concurrentielles. Elles suivent un modus operandi qui varie peu mais qui s'avère d'une efficacité redoutable : investigation sur la cible potentielle, infection de postes de travail et de serveurs au moyen de chevaux de Troie, rebond à l'intérieur du réseau de l'entreprise ciblée jusqu'à atteindre les données souhaitées, maintien de portes dérobées opérationnelles sur le réseau de la victime afin de conserver un accès constant sur plusieurs mois et s'emparer à loisir des informations sensibles de l'entreprise. Ces attaques sont orchestrées par des groupes de taille variable, dotés généralement de moyens considérables, souvent plus conséquents que ceux dont disposent les professionnels de la sécurité protégeant les entreprises ciblées. Certains de ces groupes sont financés par des États, alors que d'autres sont privés et opportunistes. Ces attaques peuvent néanmoins être combattues, sur un plan préventif par une prise de conscience globale de chaque utilisateur, et sur un plan opérationnel par une surveillance du parc informatique plus appropriée. Un livre de référence sur les attaques APT et le cyberespionnage Un ouvrage de fond en sécurité informatique, destiné à devenir une référence, écrit par l'un des pionniers français de la lutte contre le cyberespionnage. S'opposant aux idées reçues en la matière, l'ouvrage présentera les points de vue des experts du domaine et les cas les plus intéressants médiatisés ces dernières années. Il guidera le professionnel dans l'amélioration de la protection de son entreprise face à ces attaques . À qui s'adresse cet ouvrage ? Aux directeurs des systèmes d'information qui cherchent à optimiser leurs stratégies de sécurité Aux responsables de la sécurité des systèmes d'information (RSSI) qui souhaitent améliorer la sensibilisation aux attaques APT en entreprise ainsi que le niveau de sécurité global de leur parc informatique Aux administrateurs système, architectes réseau, développeurs d'outils de sécurité et particuliers curieux de se cultiver sur le sujet

And when they are hijacked by a radical religious sect, lit fuses becomes more than just a clich. Linda Chambers has a nine year old daughter -Lisa who is being stalked by a dangerous predator and the police refuse to help. In desperation she turns to her brother, he is street smart and he knows people. Or rather he knows Iron. As Iron delves deeper he finds things are not what they seem is it ever? The predator stalking Lisa is not acting alone; he is connected and protected, pitting Iron against a criminal organisation that will stop at nothing to carve out a niche in the Cape Flats underworld. And whats the connection between religious fanatics who want to recruit Iron and an Imam with ties to the underworld? Set in Cape Town, Tarnished Men is a non-stop ride through a post-apartheid South Africa, still brimming with hate and resentment.

The Haunting of Twenty-First-Century America by William J. Birnes,Joel Martin Summary

In this companion volume to The Haunting of America and The Haunting of Twentieth-Century America, national bestselling authors William J. Birnes and Joel Martin explore today's intellectual and spiritual awakening—one that is challenging traditional belief systems. Birnes and Martin show that, though many governments deny the importance of a spiritual component to national policy, even the most conservative governments have based social and financial policy decisions on a profound belief in the existence of the paranormal, ghosts, and spirits. From using psychic spying programs to gather intelligence on enemy nations to investigating the use of mind control to impede the abilities of hostile troops, the U.S. government has continuously developed paranormal weapons and tactics alongside their more mundane counterparts. U.S. Presidents from Franklin Pierce through Ronald Reagan regularly relied on the paranormal, using trance mediums, channelers, and astrologists to help plan agendas and travel schedules. The Haunting of Twenty-First-Century America is unlike any American history you will ever read—it posits that not only is the paranormal more normal than most people think, but that it is driving current events to a new "Fourth Culture" of the twenty-first century. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
