Many of today's organizations "live in public"; they devote extensive resources to branding, catching the public eye, and capitalizing on the age of transparency. But, at the same time, a growing number of companies and other collectives are flying under the radar, concealing their identities and activities. This book offers a framework for thinking about how organizations and their members communicate identity to relevant audiences. Considering the degree to which organizations reveal themselves, the extent to which members express their identification with the organization, and whether the audience is public or local, author Craig R. Scott describes collectives as residing in "regions" that range from transparent to shaded, from shadowed to dark. Taking a closer look at groups like EarthFirst!, the Church of Scientology, Alcoholics Anonymous, the KKK, Skull and Bones, U.S. special mission units, men's bathhouses, and various terrorist organizations, this book draws attention to shaded, shadowed, and dark collectives as important organizations in the contemporary landscape.

Authors Jana Costas and Christopher Grey argue that secrecy constitutes a "hidden architecture" that underlies all organizations. Drawing on previously overlooked texts in organizational theory, as well as innovative readings of well-known classics, they show how secrecy creates a social order, establishing boundaries between insiders and outsiders that ubiquitously shape organizational decision-making and behavior.

The message described Twin Towers collapsed in September, an attacker in the air, bodies in a mound, mourners at a cremation, the words "kill," "captive," and "heaven," and more. Sept. 11th? The Davenport Stones: According to Harvard University epigrapher Dr. Barry Fell (1917-1994), Professor Emeritus; the inscriptions on the stones came from an Egyptian astrologer-priest who sailed up the Mississippi River to Davenport, Iowa in 800 B.C. Davenport and New York City share latitude. No one knows exactly when the stones were carved. But, they were found in 1877 and hailed by Freemasons, Knights Templar, and the Smithsonian Institution as proof of Freemasonry's ancient ties, and as America's Rosetta Stone, respectively-at first. 2009: Why was February 14th encoded into the artwork on the old five dollar bill? Why was a St. Valentine heart carved into the hieroglyphics on the Davenport Stones? Who was St. Valentine? And, how was his day connected with the apocalypse the stones signaled to the Templars? On a cold winter night in New York City's Central Park, a wounded knight informs astronomer Sal Smith that the fate of the world is now in his hands. Joining forces with a retired professor and the victim's lovely daughter (an Olympic kayaker from Milan), Sal and the elite team must piece together clues from currency, cathedrals, Masonic art, and the Davenport Stones. But, time is running out, and when a mysterious gentleman with access to the White House offers help--should they trust him?

The world's most infamous hacker offers an insider's view of the low-tech threats to high-tech security Kevin Mitnick's exploits as a cyber-desperado and fugitive form one of the most exhaustive FBI manhunts in history and have spawned dozens of articles, books, films, and documentaries. Since his release from federal prison, in 1998, Mitnick has turned his life around and established himself as one of the most sought-after computer security experts worldwide. Now, in The Art of Deception, the world's most notorious hacker gives new meaning to the old adage, "It takes a thief to catch a thief." Focusing on the human factors involved with information security, Mitnick explains why all the firewalls and encryption protocols in the world will never be enough to stop a savvy grifter intent on rifling a corporate database or an irate employee determined to crash a system. With the help of many fascinating true stories of successful attacks on business and government, he illustrates just how susceptible even the most locked-down information systems are to a slick con artist impersonating an IRS agent. Narrating from the points of view of both the attacker and the victims, he explains why each attack was so successful and how it could have been prevented in an engaging and highly readable style reminiscent of a true-crime novel. And, perhaps most importantly, Mitnick offers advice for preventing these types of social engineering hacks through security protocols, training programs, and manuals that address the human element of security.
