Although we live in an era in which we are surrounded by an ever-deepening fog of data, few of us truly understand how the data are created, where data are stored, or how to retrieve or destroy data—if that is indeed possible. This book is for all of you, whatever your need or interest. Electronically Stored Information: The Complete Guide to Management, Understanding, Acquisition, Storage, Search, and Retrieval, Second Edition explains the reasons you need to know about electronic data. It also gets into great detail about the how, what, when, and where of what is known in legal circles as electronically stored information (ESI). With easy-to-understand explanations and guidelines, this book provides the practical understanding you need to effectively manage the complex world of ESI. Whether you are an attorney, judge, paralegal, business manager or owner, or just one of the ever-growing population of computer users, you will benefit from the information presented in this book.

Crisis is varied and unavoidable. We see crisis every day within organizations, governments, businesses and the economy. A true crisis differs from a 'routine' emergency, such as a water pipe bursting in the kitchen. Per one definition, "it is associated with urgent, high-stakes challenges in which the outcomes can vary widely (and are very negative at one end of the spectrum) and will depend on the actions taken by those involved". Successfully engaging, dealing with, and working through a crisis requires an understanding of options and tools for individual and joint decision making. The Encyclopedia of Crisis Management comprehensively overviews concepts and techniques for effectively assessing, analyzing, managing, and resolving crises, whether they be organizational, business, community, or political. From general theories and concepts exploring the meaning and causes of crisis to practical strategies and techniques relevant to crises of specific types, crisis management is thoroughly explored.

Although compliance standards can be helpful guides to writing comprehensive security policies, many of the standards state the same requirements in slightly different ways. Information Security Policy Development for Compliance: ISO/IEC 27001, NIST SP 800-53, HIPAA Standard, PCI DSS V2.0, and AUP V5.0 provides a simplified way to write policies that meet the major regulatory requirements, without having to manually look up each and every control. Explaining how to write policy statements that address multiple compliance standards and regulatory requirements, the book will help readers elicit management opinions on information security and document the formal and informal procedures currently in place. Topics covered include: Entity-level policies and procedures Access-control policies and procedures Change control and change management System information integrity and monitoring System services acquisition and protection Informational asset management Continuity of operations The book supplies you with the tools to use the full range of compliance standards as guides for writing policies that meet the security needs of your organization. Detailing a methodology to facilitate the elicitation process, it asks pointed questions to help you obtain the information needed to write relevant policies. More importantly, this methodology can help you identify the weaknesses and vulnerabilities that exist in your organization. A valuable resource for policy writers who must meet multiple compliance standards, this guidebook is also available in eBook format. The eBook version includes hyperlinks beside each statement that explain what the various standards say about each topic and provide time-saving guidance in determining what your policy should include.

There is a large increase in the amount of information available on World Wide Web and also in number of online databases. This information abundance increases the complexity of locating relevant information. Such a complexity drives the need for improved and intelligent systems for search and information retrieval. Intelligent agents are currently used to improve the search and retrieval information on World Wide Web. The use of existing search and retrieval engines with the addition of intelligent agents allows a more comprehensive search with a performance that can be measured. Intelligent Agents for Data Mining and Information Retrieval discusses the foundation as well as the practical side of intelligent agents and their theory and applications for web data mining and information retrieval. The book can used for researchers at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels as well as a reference of the state-of-art for cutting edge researchers.
