1. Cybersecurity in Our Digital Lives (Protecting Our Future Book 2)
Did you know your car can be hacked? Your medical device? Your employer’s HVAC system? Are you aware that bringing your own device to work may have security implications?
Consumers of digital technology are often familiar with headline-making hacks and breaches, but lack a complete understanding of how and why they happen, or if they have been professionally or personally compromised. In Cybersecurity in Our Digital Lives, twelve experts provide much-needed clarification on the technology behind our daily digital interactions. They explain such things as supply chain, Internet of Things, social media, cloud computing, mobile devices, the C-Suite, social engineering, and legal confidentially. Then, they discuss very real vulnerabilities, make suggestions about what can be done to enhance security, and offer recommendations for best practices. An ideal resource for students, practitioners, employers, and the general consumer of digital products and services.
Contributors include Diane Burley, Ron Carpinella, Dave Chesebrough, Reg Harnish, Kevin Jackson, Thomas Malatesta, Pete O’Dell, Andrew A. Proia, Drew Simshaw, Derek Smith, James Swanson, and Justin Zeefe.
2. HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics, Second Edition
This new edition of HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics provides in-depth, up-to-date design recommendations based on best practices from consulting and hospital engineers with decades of experience in the design, construction, and operation of health care facilities.
3. HVAC Water Chillers and Cooling Towers: Fundamentals, Application, and Operation, Second Edition
HVAC Water Chillers and Cooling Towers: Fundamentals, Application, and Operation, Second Edition explores the major improvements in recent years to many chiller and cooling tower components that have resulted in improved performance and lower operating costs.
4. Global Networking, Communication and Culture: Conflict or Convergence?
Pursuing an interdisciplinary approach, this book offers detailed insights into the empirical relationships between overall social key figures of states and cultures in the fields of information and communication technology (ICT) (digital divide/inequality), the economy, education and religion. Its goal is to bridge the ‘cultural gap’ between computer scientists, engineers, economists, social and political scientists by providing a mutual understanding of the essential challenges posed and opportunities offered by a global information and knowledge society.
5. Security with Intelligent Computing and Big-data Services
In the dawning era of Intelligent Computing and Big-data Services, security issues will be an important consideration in promoting these new technologies into the future. This book presents the proceedings of the 2017 International Conference on Security with Intelligent Computing and Big-data Services, the Workshop on Information and Communication Security Science and Engineering, and the Workshop on Security in Forensics, Medical, and Computing Services and Applications.
The topics addressed include: Algorithms and Security Analysis, Cryptanalysis and Detection Systems, IoT and E-commerce Applications, Privacy and Cloud Computing, Information Hiding and Secret Sharing, Network Security and Applications, Digital Forensics and Mobile Systems, Public Key Systems and Data Processing, and Blockchain Applications in Technology. The conference is intended to promote healthy exchanges between researchers and industry practitioners regarding advances in the state of art of these security issues. The proceedings not only highlight novel and interesting ideas, but will also stimulate interesting discussions and inspire new research directions. #engineeringtechnology_mags #science_mags
