For many people, the term cybersecurity inspires feelings of, if not exactly terror, then certainly total exasperation. The average businessperson has only a minimal understanding of cybersecurity, how to manage it, and what’s really at risk.
From understanding the need for cybersecurity, to core risk-management principles, to threats, tools, roles and responsibilities, this book walks the reader through each step of developing and implementing a cybersecurity program. When read cover-to-cover, it’s a thorough overview of everything an executive needs to know about cybersecurity (but was afraid to ask!). It can also function as a useful reference when individual questions and difficulties arise.
- Unlike other cybersecurity books, the text is not bogged down with industry jargon
- Speaks specifically to the executive who is not familiar with the development or implementation of cybersecurity programs
- Shows you how to make pragmatic, rational, and informed decisions for your organization
- Written by a top-flight technologist with decades of experience and a track record of success
If you’re a business manager or executive who needs to make sense of cybersecurity, this book demystifies it for you.
