It takes plenty of technology to find a terrorist. For years, homeland security applications have sat in the shadows. This book shines a light on them. Whether you want to build them or are concerned about their privacy implications, you’ll find this book fascinating.
Jesús Mena thoroughly covers each task these systems must perform: aggregating huge amounts of data; integrating and categorizing it; collaborating around it in real time; and using it to detect and predict terrorist acts. He shows how homeland security uses public Web and commercial demographic resources; how it handles threat matrix collaboration; how it transforms unstructured data into intelligence; and much more.
You even get trial versions of some key software on CD-ROM, so you can pretend to be your own National Security Agency (well, sort of). Bill Camarda
