A 2017 Pew Research study found that US citizens do not trust private — and especially public — institutions to protect their personal information from intrusions. Nearly 30% of Americans say they are not confident “at all” that the federal government can maintain cybersecurity. In the wake of intrusions into the data of Target, Facebook, and Equifax, over 60% of respondents said they have experienced a “significant data breach.”
GGU’s Joaquin “Jay” Gonzalez III, PhD and Roger L. Kemp, PhD, have edited Cybersecurity: Current Writings on Threats and Protection – a new collection of articles that surveys cybersecurity threats and remedies from the perspective of government, academia, and businesses. Dr. Gonzalez, George Christopher Professor of Government and Society and Chair of the Public Administration Program, also contributed “Glossary of Cybersecurity Terms” to the book, while Dr. Kemp, Distinguished Adjunct Professor, authored “Cybersecurity and America’s Governments.”
Cybersecurity offers best practices for individuals, organizations, and communities wanting to protect their information. The volume is an ideal textbook for managers and supervisors who do not have IT technical backgrounds but find themselves needing to be conversant in cybersecurity issues.
The volume is available for pre-order on Amazon.com and will be available in December 2018.
