Summary : Security Science integrates the multi-disciplined practice areas of security into a single structured body of knowledge, where each chapter takes an evidence-based approach to one of the core knowledge categories. The authors give practitioners and students the underlying scientific perspective based on robust underlying theories, principles, models or frameworks. Demonstrating the relationships and underlying concepts, they present an approach to each core security function within the context of both organizational security and homeland security. The book is unique in its application of the scientific method to the increasingly challenging tasks of preventing crime and foiling terrorist attacks. Incorporating the latest security theories and principles, it considers security from both a national and corporate perspective, applied at a strategic and tactical level. It provides a rational basis for complex decisions and begins the process of defining the emerging discipline of security science. A fresh and provocative approach to the key facets of security Presentation of theories and models for a reasoned approach to decision making Strategic and tactical support for corporate leaders handling security challenges Methodologies for protecting national assets in government and private sectors Exploration of security’s emerging body of knowledge across domains

Summary : After providing an overview of the history and functions of private investigation and private security services, this book provides information and guidance on the knowledge and skills required of a private investigator, with attention to the use of the scientific approach. The first chapter describes the nature of private investigation, with attention to the evolution of the profession over the years, regulation of and standards for the profession, and the characteristic of an ideal private investigator and security specialist. Terrorism is portrayed as today's new threat with which security specialists must deal. The second chapter sets the stage for a scientific approach to the work of security and private investigation. It describes the scientific method, associated research techniques, logical reasoning, and how to improve one's memory. The scientific method is contrasted with unscientific methods. The third chapter focuses on human behavior. It contains discussions of the complexity of human behavior, personality theories, human needs, life stages, the differences between male and female brains, and what is "normal." A separate chapter addresses abnormal and criminal behavior. It considers mental disorders, evaluation of mental status, causes of abnormal behavior, the nature of criminal behavior, the use-of-force continuum, the prevention of workplace violence, and suicide prevention. A chapter on interviewing skills covers planning, the voice, listening skills, word use, interaction, conversational tactics, the cognitive interview, and stress interviews. Other chapters focus on the art of interrogation; writing skills; issues of leadership and management; court procedures and being a witness; and how the private investigator should manage his/her professional life in maintaining integrity and ethical behavior, in managing the media, and in fighting burnout.

Summary : Cyber-security is a matter of rapidly growing importance in industry and government. This book provides insight into a range of data science techniques for addressing these pressing concerns.The application of statistical and broader data science techniques provides an exciting growth area in the design of cyber defences. Networks of connected devices, such as enterprise computer networks or the wider so-called Internet of Things, are all vulnerable to misuse and attack, and data science methods offer the promise to detect such behaviours from the vast collections of cyber traffic data sources that can be obtained. In many cases, this is achieved through anomaly detection of unusual behaviour against understood statistical models of normality.This volume presents contributed papers from an international conference of the same name held at Imperial College. Experts from the field have provided their latest discoveries and review state of the art technologies.

Summary : Information Security Science: Measuring the Vulnerability to Data Compromises provides the scientific background and analytic techniques to understand and measure the risk associated with information security threats. This is not a traditional IT security book since it includes methods of information compromise that are not typically addressed in textbooks or journals. In particular, it explores the physical nature of information security risk, and in so doing exposes subtle, yet revealing, connections between information security, physical security, information technology, and information theory. This book is also a practical risk management guide, as it explains the fundamental scientific principles that are directly relevant to information security, specifies a structured methodology to evaluate a host of threats and attack vectors, identifies unique metrics that point to root causes of technology risk, and enables estimates of the effectiveness of risk mitigation. This book is the definitive reference for scientists and engineers with no background in security, and is ideal for security analysts and practitioners who lack scientific training. Importantly, it provides security professionals with the tools to prioritize information security controls and thereby develop cost-effective risk management strategies. Specifies the analytic and scientific methods necessary to estimate the vulnerability to information loss for a spectrum of threats and attack vectors Represents a unique treatment of the nexus between physical and information security that includes risk analyses of IT device emanations, visible information, audible information, physical information assets, and virtualized IT environments Identifies metrics that point to the root cause of information technology risk and thereby assist security professionals in developing risk management strategies Analyzes numerous threat scenarios and specifies countermeasures based on derived quantitative metrics Provides chapter introductions and end-of-chapter summaries to enhance the reader’s experience and facilitate an appreciation for key concepts

Summary : The need for agricultural research resources in the developing world cannot be underestimated, but the availability of such resources is often poor due to lack of funding and investment. In order for Africa and other such developing countries to achieve productivity in agriculture - vital to food security, poverty reduction and sustainable management of natural resources - investment and policy development needs to be assessed. This book, a joint effort from IFPRI, ILRI and the Kellogg Foundation, explores the importance of impact assessment studies in Africa, and assembles important evidence to pave the way for further, much needed investment in agricultural research all over the developing world.

Summary : As the importance of environmental security increases worldwide, colleges and universities are evaluating how well they are preparing the next generation of environmental scientists and managers and developing new educational approaches. In this volume, we examine: (1) current educational practices and the need for change, (2) educational needs from the perspective of employers and professionals, and (3) new practices in higher education in environmental fields. The contributors were carefully selected by an international coordinating team based on their international reputations in the field of progressive educational approaches and understanding of the global employment market in environmental science. Although the focal geographic areas are North America, Europe and the former Soviet republics, the ideas and strategies discussed are universal to all institutions of higher education. We highlight specific non-traditional approaches such as using the university as a curricular tool, developing permaculture programs, and applying sustainability pedagogy, and document their success from both a student and employer perspective. We also include case studies on risk assessment and eco-efficiency education to illustrate why and how transdisciplinary education can be accomplished. We conclude that it is imperative that our educational systems teach environmental security at the university level within a transdisciplinary context; and that opportunities, such as internships and other methods of applied learning, are included in the curriculum.
