4. Cyber Crisis: Protecting Your Business from Real Threats in the Virtual World
Author: by Eric Cole
May 18, 2021
Based on news reports, you might think there’s a major cybersecurity threat every four to five months. In reality, there’s a cybersecurity attack happening every minute of every day. Today, we live our livesand conduct our businessonline. Our data is in the cloud and in our pockets on our smartphones, shuttled over public Wi-Fi and company networks.
To keep it safe, we rely on passwords and encryption and private servers, IT departments and best practices. But as you read this, there is a 70 percent chance that your data is compromised … You just don’t know it yet. Cybersecurity attacks have increased exponentially, but because they’re stealthy and often invisible, many underplay, ignore, or simply don’t realize the danger.
By the time they discover a breach, most individuals and businesses have been compromised for over three years. Instead of waiting until a problem surfaces, avoiding a data disaster means acting now to prevent one. In Cyber Crisis, Eric Cole gives readers a clear-eyed picture of the information war raging in cyberspace.

7. Algorithms of Oppression: How Search Engines Reinforce Racism
Author: by Safiya Umoja Noble
A revealing look at how negative biases against women of color are embedded in search engine results and algorithms Run a Google search for black girlswhat will you find? Big Booty and other sexually explicit terms are likely to come up as top search terms.
But, if you type in white girls, the results are radically different. The suggested porn sites and un-moderated discussions about why black women are so sassy or why black women are so angry presents a disturbing portrait of black womanhood in modern society.
In Algorithms of Oppression, Safiya Umoja Noble challenges the idea that search engines like Google offer an equal playing field for all forms of ideas, identities, and activities. Data discrimination is a real social problem; Noble argues that the combination of private interests in promoting certain sites, along with the monopoly status of a relatively small number of Internet search engines, leads to a biased set of search algorithms that privilege whiteness and discriminate against people of color, specifically women of color.

The Innovators is a masterly saga of collaborative genius destined to be the standard history of the digital revolutionand an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens.
Isaacson begins the adventure with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron’s daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R.
Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It’s also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative.

Author: by Jimmy Soni
Simon & Schuster
Winner of the Neumann Prize for the History of Mathematics*Named a best book of the year by Bloomberg and Nature* *’Best of 2017′ by The Morning Sun* “We owe Claude Shannon a lot, and Soni & Goodman’s book takes a big first step in paying that debt.” San Francisco Review of Books “Soni and Goodman are at their best when they invoke the wonder an idea can instill.
They summon the right level of awe while stopping short of hyperbole.” Financial Times “Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman make a convincing case for their subtitle while reminding us that Shannon never made this claim himself.” The Wall Street Journal “Soni and Goodman have done their research…
A Mind at Play reveals the remarkable human behind some of the most important theoretical and practical contributions to the information age.” Nature “A Mind at Play shows us that you don’t need to be a genius to learn from a genius.
Claude Shannon’s inventive, vibrant life demonstrates how vital the act of play can be to making the most of work.” Inc. A charming account of one of the twentieth century’s most distinguished scientistsReaders will enjoy this portrait of a modern-day Da Vinci.
