Managing Cyber Threats by Vipin Kumar, Jaideep Srivastava and Aleksandar Lazarevic pdf free download. Information technology (IT) has become the engine that drives our modem enterprises within the public and private sectors. Government agencies and businesses have become increasingly reliant on IT systems to carry out important missions and functions and to increase their productivity. However, the very same information infrastructure that has brought a high degree of agility to our society has also created a degree of fragility — which if not remedied can cause serious damage to societal and economic well-being.

For example, there have been several incidents (e.g., Code-Red I & II, Nimda, and more recently the SQL Slammer and Blaster worm attacks) of large-scale, distributed denial-of-service attacks in just the last two or three years. The intention of these attacks was not simply to infect a few machines, but to affect large portions of the Internet by shutting down millions of servers and clogging the information “superhighways.” The brunt of these attacks has been borne by those responsible for computer security, and the security research and development community has come to their aid — developing a number of techniques to make it harder to launch attacks.

However, this battle is becoming increasingly difficuh as a number of factors are aiding the attackers as well. First, the wide adoption of the Internet by the society at large has increased the number of organizations that can be accessed through a network, making them vulnerable to attacks from anywhere in the world. Second, information systems have become significantly more powerful and more complex during the past decade with an exponential growth in features and associated capabilities. The more complex systems are, the more difficult it is to thoroughly review all of their components and ensure the absence of security holes in them.

Finally, since September 11*, 2001, we have discovered that there are well-organized groups — backed by the resources of certain govemments — whose express purpose is to cripple the society’s information infrastructure. Against the backdrop described above, there is a need to have a systematic and comprehensive approach to securing the society’s information infrastructure, also called the ”cyber infrastructure”. Thus, we define cyber threat management (CTM) as the collection of tools, techniques, policies, processes, and practices that are aimed at protecting the cyber infrastructure, and thwarting — both retro- and proactively — attacks against it, There are a number of challenges to existing tools and techniques for cyber threat management.

First, the amount of data being generated from various network-monitoring devices is at a scale that makes human analysis essentially impossible. This requires some form of automated analysis to extract higher-level information from the monitored system, in a form and scale comprehensible to a human analyst. Second, escalating importance of cyber security in our society creates the need for new techniques for managing cyber vulnerabilities and cyber alerts that will help to improve general computer security.
