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.
