Using Web Archives in Research: An Introduction

Description: The purpose of this book is to gather and make available knowledge about the use of web archives for research. It is written in a Danish context and adapted to the needs of Danish researchers but can also be useful for other researchers. The book serves as the course material for NetLab’s workshops. The structure of the book is therefore inspired by the modules of the NetLab workshops, but it can easily be read independently of the workshops. The book will be continuously updated with relevant new research in web archiving, for which reason it will be made available in several different versions in the longer term.

National Cyber Strategy of the United States of America

Description: With the release of this National Cyber Strategy, the United States now has its first fully articulated cyber strategy in 15 years. This strategy explains how the US will: Defend the homeland by protecting networks, systems, functions, and data; Promote American prosperity by nurturing a secure, thriving digital economy and fostering strong domestic innovation; Preserve peace and security by strengthening the ability of the United States — in concert with allies and partners — to deter and, if necessary, punish those who use cyber tools for malicious purposes; and Expand American influence abroad to extend the key tenets of an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet. The new U.S. cyber strategy seeks to allay some of those concerns by promoting responsible behavior in cyberspace, urging nations to adhere to a set of norms, both through international law and voluntary standards. It also calls for specific measures to harden U.S. government networks from attacks, like the June 2015 intrusion into the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which compromised the records of about 4.2 million current and former government employees. And the strategy calls for the U.S. to continue to name and shame bad cyber actors, calling them out publicly for attacks when possible, along with the use of economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure.
