Learn the very lucrative areas of Smart Contract Security, Auditing, and Testing in Blockchain. Finish to build a career in cybersecurity and blockchain by being Industry 4.0 ready. DESCRIPTION As this decade comes to a closure, we are looking at, what we like to call, an Industry 4.0. This era is expected to see radical changes in the way we work and live, due to huge leaps and advancements with technologies such as Blockchain and Quantum Computing. This calls for the new age workforce to be industry-ready, which essentially means an understanding of the core fields of Cybersecurity, Blockchain, and Quantum Computing is becoming imperative. This book starts with a primer on the “Essentials of Cybersecurity”. This part allows the reader to get comfortable with the concepts of cybersecurity that are needed to gain a deeper understanding of the concepts to follow. The next part gives a similar primer on the “Essentials of Blockchain”. These two parts at the beginning of the book allow this book to be easily followed by beginners as well. The following parts delve into the concepts, where we see a “Superimposition of Cybersecurity and Blockchain”, and the concepts and situations where we may see and understand amazing problems that systems in the current world face day in and day out. This book puts immense emphasis on helping the reader know about the Standards and Frameworks needed to be put in place to make an organization work seamlessly. Towards the end, a part dedicated to Smart Contract Security, Auditing, and Testing in Blockchain provides knowledge about what is one of the most lucrative career options and has vital importance in the field of Blockchain. Conclusively, the book tries well to make the reader “Industry 4.0-ready”, helping them in traversing through the upcoming decade of significant career options. WHAT WILL YOU LEARN By the end of the book, you should be able to understand the gravity of the concepts involved in technologies like Blockchain and Cybersecurity, with an acute understanding of the areas, such as Quantum Computing, which affect the technologies. You will also know about the tools used in Smart Contract Auditing and Testing in Blockchain. You should be able to make a career in blockchain and associated technologies going forward. WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR This book is meant for everyone who wishes to build a career in blockchain and/or cybersecurity. The book doesn’t assume prior knowledge on any of the topics; hence a beginner from any diverse field might definitely give these technologies a try by reading this book. The book is divided into parts that take the reader seamlessly from beginner concepts to advanced practices prevalent in the industry. No prior programming experience is assumed either. Familiarity with the basic web technologies would help, though it is not mandatory to follow this book. Table of Contents Preface Introduction Why Did We Write This Book? Part 1.

Global Value Chains and Production Networks: Case Studies of Siemens and Huawei presents theories and frameworks that facilitate the evolution of GPN studies, from macro perspectives based on territory and industry to the use of micro (firm-level) data. The book explores these theories and frameworks through detailed case studies of two major corporations, Siemens and Huawei. With the GPN/GVC structure of Chinese firms not well known outside China, despite the growing importance of Chinese firms in the global economy, this guide plays a pivotal role in facilitating the use of data that promise to unlock economic cooperation and value. Emphasizes micro-data analytical models and their methodological underpinnings Illustrates how these data illuminate the economic structures of two comparable GPNs within highly divergent institutional contexts Suggests how companies can cooperate with foreign partners to enhance their global management capacity and reshape their advantages in international competition

The development of international trade is driven by international logistics and management and the provision of the global supply chain. The ultimate objective of global supply chain management is to link the market place, distribution network, manufacturing/processing/assembly process, and procurement activity in such a way that customers are serviced at a higher level yet lower cost. Overall this has introduced a new breed of management in a computer literate environment operating in a global infrastructure. Addressing this complex topic, Alan Branch's new book fulfills two clear objectives: to provide a concise, standard work on the subject, written in lucid language that embraces all the ingredients of a notoriously complex subject with a strategic focus to extol best practices and focus on all areas of the industrial and consumer sectors and their interface with changing international market needs. Until now, no book dedicated to international logistics and supply chain management was available. Practically-oriented, this book features numerous case studies and diagrams from logistic operators. An ideal resource for management students, academics and managers who need a succinct treatment of global operations, Branch's book skillfully illustrates his ideas in practice. It is a book which should be on the shelf of every practitioner and student of the subject. Also available from Routledge: Elements of Shipping, Eighth Edition, Alan E. Branch.
