    Security is a lifestyle

    Security isn¿t just something you ¿turn on¿. Security is a mindset, a set of systems and practices that affect all aspects of your work environment. And implementing security practices¿especially in an organization devoid of such¿is a daunting task. I found this to be an excellent book in that the author obviously understands security. He¿s dedicated his life keeping privileged information safe. More importantly, this book is laid out in such a way that it will lead the uninitiated, newly appointed security expert at any organization through the process of implementing a security framework. Firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems, and the like are only as good as the policies that govern them. The first step in implementing security is to define an information security policy. The author leads the reader through identifying business risks and creating an action plan to mitigate those risks. In addition to the expected ¿what does a firewall do, and how should you use it¿ type of information, the author does an excellent job cutting to the chase on a wide variety of security issues. He provides examples of how find the right people to implement your security framework, what types of systems might be required in your environment, and how to perform periodic penetration testing, to see if your security framework keeps the bad guys out. I really see this book being of great benefit to the newly appointed security expert, who is perhaps a bit overwhelmed with his/her new responsibilities. This book is an easy read, very interesting, and very useful for the individual responsible for all aspects of a company¿s security infrastructure.
