Product description

From the Back Cover

This book is the essential cybersecurity text for executives in every corporate level and sector.  Equally applicable to board members, CEOs and other C–suite officers, and others with leadership and managerial responsibilities, it gives practical advice that equips executives with the knowledge they need to make the right cybersecurity decisions.

Written as a Practical Guide, the book explains in plain language how to recognize and act upon cybersecurity threats to protect yourself and your business, how to manage risk, and how to recover when a cyber incident occurs.  It gives executives vital information needed to understand cybersecurity best practices and how to integrate them into their business to manage risk.  Those who read this book will be better prepared to train their personnel, use cybersecurity metrics to protect their bottom line, and act decisively to mitigate and recover from cyber incidents.

Through discussions of risk, strategy, policies, change and personnel management, and performance measures, the book provides relevant and timely information to help readers make better decisions regarding cybersecurity.  An ideal book for business executives, it also is an important textbook for any computer science, engineering, or business curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
