Harboring data : information security, law, and the corporation / edited by Andrea M. Matwyshyn. Stanford Law Books, c2009.

KF1263.C65H37 2009

 

Professor Greg Vetter authored “Information Security and Patents” which begins on page 64.

 

This book offers a discussion about information security within companies. As identity theft and corporate data vulnerability continue to escalate, corporations must protect both the valuable consumer data they collect and their own intangible assets. Both Congress and the states have passed laws to improve practices, but the rate of data loss persists unabated and companies remain slow to invest in information security. Engaged in a bottom-up investigation, Harboring Data reveals the emergent nature of data leakage and vulnerability, as well as some of the areas where our current regulatory frameworks fall short.

 

 

 

Mark A.R. Kleiman. When brute force fails : how to have less crime and less punishment. Princeton University Press, c2009.

KF9223.K54 2009

 

This book takes a close look at the fact, that since the crime explosion of the 1960s, the prison population in the United States has multiplied fivefold, to one prisoner for every hundred adults--a rate unprecedented in American history and unmatched anywhere in the world. Even as the prisoner head count continues to rise, crime has stopped falling, and poor people and minorities still bear the brunt of both crime and punishment. When Brute Force Fails explains how we got into the current trap and how we can get out of it: to cut both crime and the prison population in half within a decade.
