INTRODUCTION

Purpose and scope

For persons with knowledge of cybersecurity or security engineering, but not standards and best practices, this book introduces them to the discipline of international standards and best practices and points to references for further knowledge. It supplies the background needed to meaningfully recognize the topic a reference might cover and highlights the references which might be of interest.

For those with a standards background, the book provides some essential insight into the current world of CyberWar, CyberTerror, CyberCrime and CyberActivism.

This book cannot, of course, enumerate the knowledge needed in all possible fields in which secure information systems are essential.
