Computer security has become a vital business driver, newspapers carry daily reports of business losses due to security failures worldwide. Most business is now dependent on computers, and many new business opportunities are dependent on the Internet. This exposes businesses to a vast array of threats that are poorly understood. Controlling and reducing these threats involves some basic decisions about how computers are configured, computer operations, support processes, and how much your trust is extended to customers and employees. Many business professionals are exposed to security concepts for which they have no background to make informed decisions. This book is for those professionals. The authors walk the reader through definitions of basic security functions, design philosophies for security policy, descriptions of technology, and factors related to successfully protecting yourself in the online world.
