Further, it explores the risks posed by trusted employees that put critical information at risk through malice, negligence, or simply making a mistake. It clarifies the historical context of the current situation as it relates to cybersecurity, the challenges facing private business, and the fundamental changes organizations can make to better protect themselves. The problems we face are difficult, but they are not hopeless.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent book that covers all of the relevant topics needed for implementing a successful security program. The author clearly understands both security and business issues and explains the need for senior management involvement and how a security process must complement the overall business process. ... The writing is clear and readable for nontechnical people. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in cyber security." (Computing Reviews, May, 2017)
