The intersection of politics, law, privacy, and security in the context of computer technology is both sensitive and complex. Computer viruses, worms, Trojan horses, spy-ware, computer exploits, poorly designed software, inadequate technology laws, politics and terrorismâ¿¿all of these have a profound effect on our daily computing operations and habits, with major political and social implications. Computer Security, Privacy and Politics: Current Issues, Challenges and Solutions connects privacy and politics, offering a point-in-time review of recent developments of computer security, with a special focus on the relevance and implications of global privacy, law, and politics for society, individuals, and corporations. An estimable addition to any library collection, this reference source compiles high quality, timely content on such cutting-edge topics as reverse engineering of software, understanding emerging computer exploits, emerging lawsuits and cases, global and societal implications, and protection from attacks on privacy.
