As we come upon the 30th anniversary of communism’s fall, it is a good time to reexamine what life was like behind the Iron Curtain and how communism impacted people for generations. The study of communication is important as it shows how much effect government type has on the principles its people support. Those interested in promoting and maintaining democratic ideals in countries around the world require a book such as this to better understand the effect communism has had. Impact of Political Socialization on the Support for Democratic Principles: Emerging Research and Opportunities examines life under communism in Czechoslovakia and Hungary with particular attention paid to education, religion, travel, and exposure to Western culture, as well as their transition to democracy and how successful that transition has been. The book makes the case that being politically socialized under communism has made embracing democratic principles more difficult. The evidence for this case is based on 200 interviews conducted in 2017-18 with people who lived in Czechoslovakia and Hungary during communism, present-day analysis of government and politics in the Czech Republic and Hungary, and survey data from the European Social Survey. The main struggles in transitioning to democracy are identified, and it is speculated whether the Czech Republic and Hungary can ever be long-term, fully functioning democracies. The main implications of this publication are how government type during political socialization affects support for democratic principles, and whether the United States could ever be at risk for democratic erosion. The book is intended for political scientists, government officials, historians, academicians, researchers, and students.

Advancing technologies, especially computer technologies, have necessitated the creation of a comprehensive investigation and collection methodology for digital and online evidence. The goal of cyber forensics is to perform a structured investigation while maintaining a documented chain of evidence to find out exactly what happened on a computing device or on a network and who was responsible for it. Critical Concepts, Standards, and Techniques in Cyber Forensics is a critical research book that focuses on providing in-depth knowledge about online forensic practices and methods. Highlighting a range of topics such as data mining, digital evidence, and fraud investigation, this book is ideal for security analysts, IT specialists, software engineers, researchers, security professionals, criminal science professionals, policymakers, academicians, and students.

Nationalist movements remain a force in contemporary American politics, regardless of political party. Recently, social issues have moved to the forefront of American society, and civilian participation in activism is at an all time high. The nationalism that the world started to experience pre-2016, but much more intently post-2016, has impacted international alliances, global strategies, and threatened the fragile stability that had been established in the post-September 11th world. Major political events in more recent times, such as the American election, have brought social issues into stark focus along with placing a spotlight on politics and nationalism in general. Thus, there is an updated need for research on the most current advances and information on nationalism, social movements, and activism in modern times. Global Politics, Political Participation, and the Rise of Nationalism: Emerging Research and Opportunities discusses the ways in which nationalism and nationalist ideologies have permeated throughout America and the international community. This work considers the rise of neo-nationalism stemming from the Tea Party in the United States, Brexit and the era of the Tory Divorce from Europe, contemporary electoral politics that are helping in the spread of nationalist policies and leaders (providing a normalization of policies that are sometimes anti-democratic), the 2020 resurgence of Black Lives Matter after the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and the role of the coronavirus pandemic in helping to shape the world order to come. This book will be ideal for activists, politicians, lawyers, political science professors and researchers, international relations and comparative politics professors and students, practitioners, policymakers, researchers, academicians, and anyone interested in the current state of global politics, nationalism, and activism in political participation.

With the continued progression of technologies such as mobile computing and the internet of things (IoT), cybersecurity has swiftly risen to a prominent field of global interest. This has led to cyberattacks and cybercrime becoming much more sophisticated to a point where cybersecurity can no longer be the exclusive responsibility of an organization’s information technology (IT) unit. Cyber warfare is becoming a national issue and causing various governments to reevaluate the current defense strategies they have in place. Cyber Security Auditing, Assurance, and Awareness Through CSAM and CATRAM provides emerging research exploring the practical aspects of reassessing current cybersecurity measures within organizations and international governments and improving upon them using audit and awareness training models, specifically the Cybersecurity Audit Model (CSAM) and the Cybersecurity Awareness Training Model (CATRAM). The book presents multi-case studies on the development and validation of these models and frameworks and analyzes their implementation and ability to sustain and audit national cybersecurity strategies. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as forensic analysis, digital evidence, and incident management, this book is ideally designed for researchers, developers, policymakers, government officials, strategists, security professionals, educators, security analysts, auditors, and students seeking current research on developing training models within cybersecurity management and awareness.

Developing a knowledge model helps to formalize the difficult task of analyzing crime incidents in addition to preserving and presenting the digital evidence for legal processing. The use of data analytics techniques to collect evidence assists forensic investigators in following the standard set of forensic procedures, techniques, and methods used for evidence collection and extraction. Varieties of data sources and information can be uniquely identified, physically isolated from the crime scene, protected, stored, and transmitted for investigation using AI techniques. With such large volumes of forensic data being processed, different deep learning techniques may be employed. Confluence of AI, Machine, and Deep Learning in Cyber Forensics contains cutting-edge research on the latest AI techniques being used to design and build solutions that address prevailing issues in cyber forensics and that will support efficient and effective investigations. This book seeks to understand the value of the deep learning algorithm to handle evidence data as well as the usage of neural networks to analyze investigation data. Other themes that are explored include machine learning algorithms that allow machines to interact with the evidence, deep learning algorithms that can handle evidence acquisition and preservation, and techniques in both fields that allow for the analysis of huge amounts of data collected during a forensic investigation. This book is ideally intended for forensics experts, forensic investigators, cyber forensic practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in cyber forensics, computer science and engineering, information technology, and electronics and communication.

This book presents the deep subject-matter understanding gained by a mid-career U.S. Air Force officer who as a Research Fellow engaged in a year-long quest for insight into asymmetric conflict analysis and synthesis. During the year, through innumerable exchanges with expert counterterrorism practitioners inside and outside of government, he acquired a first-hand appreciation of how intelligence can more systematically build and employ a capability to gain ground in this challenging environment. His formulation, presented here in an accessible, systematic manner that makes it suitable as a handbook for practitioners at any level, goes well beyond any existing guidance yet assembled in one package. This product has been reviewed by senior experts from academia and government, and has been approved for unrestricted distribution by the Office of Freedom of Information and Security Review, Washington Headquarters Services.
