Cyber threats require next generation information access systems due to proliferating digital attacks. According to Chuck Cohen, lieutenant with a major Midwestern law enforcement agency and adjunct instructor at Indiana University: "This book is an important introduction to cyber tools for open source information. Investigators and practitioners needing an overview of the companies defining this new enterprise software sector will want this monograph."

President Obama’s announcement of a new initiative to combat the deepening threat from cyber attacks adds an important resource to counter cyber threats. The decision reflects the need for additional counter terrorism resources in the wake of the Sony and Anthem security breaches. The new initiative serves both Federal and commercial sectors’ concerns with escalating cyber threats.

The Department of Homeland Security said in a public release: “National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center mission is to reduce the likelihood and severity of incidents that may significantly compromise the security and resilience of the Nation’s critical information technology and communications networks.”

For the first time, a clear explanation of the software and systems that perform automated collection and analysis of digital information is available. Stephen E. Arnold’s new book “CyberOSINT: Next Generation Information Access” was written to provide information about advanced information access technology. The new study was published by Beyond Search on January 21, 2015.

The author, Stephen E. Arnold, a former executive at Halliburton Nuclear Services and Booz, Allen & Hamilton, said: “The increase in cyber threats means that next generation systems will play a rapidly increasing part in law enforcement and intelligence activities.”

The monograph explains why next generation information access systems are the logical step beyond keyword search. Also, the book provides the first overview of the architecture of cyber OSINT systems. The monograph provides profiles of more than 20 systems now available to government entities and commercial organizations. The study includes a summary of the year’s research behind the monograph and a glossary of the terms used in cyber OSINT.

In February 2015, Arnold will keynote a conference on CyberOSINT held in the Washington, DC area. Attendance to the conference is by invitation only. Those interested in the a day long discussion of cyber OSINT can write benkent2020 at yahoo dot com to express their interest in the limited access program.

Arnold added: “Using highly-automated systems, governmental entities and corporations can detect and divert cyber attacks and take steps to prevent assaults and apprehend the people that are planning them. Manual methods such as key word searches are inadequate due to the volume of information to be analyzed and the rapid speed with which threats arise.”

Robert David Steele, a former CIA professional and the co-creator of the Marine Corps. intelligence activity said about the new study: “NGIA systems are integrated solutions that blend software and hardware to address very specific needs. Our intelligence, law enforcement, and security professionals need more than brute force keyword search. This report will help clients save hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
