Emerging Trends in ICT Security, an edited volume, discusses the foundations and theoretical aspects of ICT security; covers trends, analytics, assessments and frameworks necessary for performance analysis and evaluation; and gives you the state-of-the-art knowledge needed for successful deployment of security solutions in many environments. Application scenarios provide you with an insider's look at security solutions deployed in real-life scenarios, including but limited to smart devices, biometrics, social media, big data security, and crowd sourcing.
- Provides a multidisciplinary approach to security with coverage of communication systems, information mining, policy making, and management infrastructures
- Discusses deployment of numerous security solutions, including, cyber defense techniques and defense against malicious code and mobile attacks
- Addresses application of security solutions in real-life scenarios in several environments, such as social media, big data and crowd sourcing
