Securing Social Networks in Cyberspace
To be Published by CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, USA

Editor: Al-Sakib Khan Pathan

Main Theme

Today’s world is unimaginable without online social networks. Nowadays, millions of people connect with their friends and families by sharing their personal information with the help of different forms of social media. Using social media is often more convenient than meeting with one another in person but sometimes individuals face different types of issues while maintaining the multimedia contents. For instance, managing audios, videos, photos could be complicated because it is difficult to maintain the security and privacy of these multimedia contents uploaded on a daily basis and often, without enough care of privacy. Simple video can provide a lot of information about a person, about his/her food habit, surroundings, home setting, products used, etc. In fact, sometimes even personal or sensitive information could get viral if that leaks out unintentionally. Any leaked out content can be shared and made a topic of popular talk all over the world within few seconds with the help of the social networking sites. In the setting of Internet of Things (IoT) that is supposed to connect millions of devices, such contents could be shared from anywhere anytime.

Considering such a setting, this book would collate the key security and privacy concerns faced by individuals and organizations who use various social networking sites differently for different reasons. Current state-of-the-art defense mechanisms that can bring somewhat long-term solutions to tackling these threats, would also be considered.
