The definitive formula for computer security, from power outages to theft and sabotage

Whether you are in charge of many computers, or even one important one, there are immediate steps you can take to safeguard your company's computer system and its contents. The Computer Security Handbook provides a readable and comprehensive resource for protecting computer mainframe systems and PC networks. This Fourth Edition continues a long tradition of maintaining highly regarded industry guidelines for detecting virtually every possible threat to your system and prescribes specific actions you can take to eliminate them.

The collected chapters are written by renowned industry professionals. Requiring minimal technical knowledge to understand, covered topics include: foundations of computer security, threats and vulnerabilities, prevention (technical defenses and human factors), detection, remediation, management's role, and other considerations such as using encryption internationally, anonymity and identity in cyberspace, and censorship.
