The Dictionary of Information Security provides complete and easy to read explanations of common security and infrastructure protection terms (quick refresher terms). Special attention is given to terms that most often prevent educated readers from understanding journal articles or books in cryptography, computer security, information systems, role-based access management and applied fields that build on those disciplines. Also included in the dictionary are terms that refer to computing forensics, malware attacks, privacy issues, system design, security auditing and vulnerability testing. Although it is difficult for an IT professional or an IT student to keep aware of the current terminology being practiced today, the Dictionary of Information Security presents cutting-edge information on the most recent terms in use in one concisely formatted volume. Similar to dictionaries for languages, statistics, epidemiology and other disciplines, this IT Security Dictionary is a reference tool that should become part of any professional and IT student's library. The Dictionary of Information Security is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This dictionary is also suitable for students in computer science, engineering and information sciences.

"Protecting Privacy and Data Security Fighting Off Hacking and Malware Attacks Awareness Raising for Home Users The First Edition of the THE INFORMATION SECURITY DICTIONARY defines over 1200 of the most commonly used words in the security field, with particular attention to those terms used most often in forensics, malware, viruses, vulnerabilities and IPv6. A new world of words has emerged from technology’s affect on the language of our modern culture. THE INFORMATION SECURITY DICTIONARY is a reference tool that should become part of any IT professional and IT student's library, concisely formatted in one volume. Special attention is paid to terms which most often prevent educated readers from understanding journal articles and books in cryptology, security and information systems, and computer science, in addition to applied fields that build on these disciplines, such as system design, security auditing, vulnerability testing, and role-based access management. The emphasis throughout THE INFORMATION SECURITY DICTIONARY is on concepts, rather than implementations. Since concepts often complicate matters, readers may find a definition makes sense only after it has been illustrated by an example which the author provides in this dictionary. THE DICTIONARY OF INFORMATION SECURITY is designed for researchers, students, and practitioners in industry, as well as educated readers interested in the security field."
