Overview

This book provides professionals with the necessary managerial, technical, and legal background to support investment decisions in security technology. It discusses security from the perspective of hackers (i.e., technology issues and defenses) and lawyers (i.e., legal issues and defenses). This cross-disciplinary book is designed to help users quickly become current on what has become a fundamental business issue. This book covers the entire range of best security practices—obtaining senior management commitment, defining information security goals and policies, transforming those goals into a strategy for monitoring intrusions and compliance, and understanding legal implications. Topics also include computer crime, electronic evidence, cyber terrorism, and computer forensics. For professionals in information systems, financial accounting, human resources, health care, legal policy, and law. Because neither technical nor legal expertise is necessary to understand the concepts and issues presented, this book can be required reading for everyone as part of an enterprise-wide computer security awareness program.
