Influencers now dominate the digital world and, when it comes to growth, they are consistently outperforming traditional media and brand advertising.Des...pite their prominence, digital influencers continue to be misunderstood and undervalued by many people, as those charged with incorporating the influencer space into their digital strategy rarely comprehend how this extremely powerful industry works.

Influence draws upon first-hand interviews with world-renowned influencers, providing an invaluable insight into the inner-workings of digital culture and how it can best be used as an effective marketing and branding platform. This compelling guide on how to effectively identify and utilise the power of influencers is a must-read for anyone who wants their business to succeed and prosper online.

            This book is an attempt to better formalize a systemic approach to Human-Systems Integration (HSI). Good HSI is a matter of maturity... it takes time to mature. It takes time for a human being to become autonomous, and then mature! HSI is a matter of human-machine teaming, where ...human-machine cooperation and coordination are crucial. We cannot think engineering design without considering people and organizations that go with it. We also cannot think new technology, new organizations and new jobs without considering change management. More specifically, this book is a follow-up of previous contributions in Human-Centered Design and practice in the development of virtual prototypes that requires progressive operational tangibility toward HSI. The book discusses flexibility in design and operations, tangibility of software-intensive systems, virtual human-centered design, increasingly-autonomous complex systems, Human-Factors and Ergonomics of sociotechnical systems, systems integration, and changed management in digital organizations. The book will be of interest to industry, academia, those involved with systems engineering, human factors and the broader public.

            This book documents and explains civil defence preparations for national cyber emergencies in conditions of both peace and war. The volume analyses the escalating sense of crisis around state-sponsored cyber-attacks that have emerged since 2015, when the United States first decla...red a national emergency in cyber space. It documents a shift in thinking in the USA, from cooperative resilience-oriented approaches at national level to more highly regulated, state-led civil defence initiatives. Although the American response has been mirrored in other countries, the shift is far from universal. Civil defence strategies have come into play but the global experience of that has not been consistent or even that successful. Containing contributions from well-placed scholars and practitioners, this volume reviews a selection of national experiences (from the USA, India, China, Estonia, and Finland) and a number of key thematic issues (information weapons, alliance coordination, and attack simulations). These demonstrate a disconnect between the deepening sense of vulnerability and the availability of viable solutions at the national level. Awareness of this gap may ultimately lead to more internationally oriented cooperation, but the trend for now appears to be more conflictual and rooted in a growing sense of insecurity. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber-security, homeland security, disaster management and International Relations, as well as practitioner and policy-makers.

            The Routledge Handbook of International Cybersecurity examines the development and use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) from the perspective of international peace and security. Acknowledging that the very notion of peace and security has become more complex, ...the volume seek to determine which questions of cybersecurity are indeed of relevance for international peace and security and which, while requiring international attention, are simply issues of contemporary governance or development. The Handbook offers a variety of thematic, regional and disciplinary perspectives on the question of international cybersecurity, and the chapters contextualize cybersecurity in the broader contestation over the world order, international law, conflict, human rights, governance and development. The volume is split into four thematic sections: Concepts and frameworks; Challenges to secure and peaceful cyberspace; National and regional perspectives on cybersecurity; Global approaches to cybersecurity. This book will be of much interest to students of cyber-security, computer science, sociology, international law, defence studies and International Relations in general.
