Overview

Is your e-business secure? Have you done everything you can to protect your enterprise and your customers from the potential exploits of hackers, crackers, and other cyberspace menaces? As we expand the brave new world of e-commerce, we are confronted with a whole new set of security problems. Dealing with the risks of Internet applications and e-commerce requires new ways of thinking about security.
Secure Internet Practices: Best Practices for Securing Systems in the Internet and e-Business Age presents an overview of security programs, policies, goals, life cycle development issues, infrastructure, and architecture aimed at enabling you to effectively implement security at your organization. In addition to discussing general issues and solutions, the book provides concrete examples and templates for crafting or revamping your security program in the form of an Enterprise-Wide Security Program Model, and an Information Security Policy Framework.
Although rich in technical expertise, this is not strictly a handbook of Internet technologies, but a guide that is equally useful for developing policies, procedures, and standards. The book touches all the bases you need to build a secure enterprise. Drawing on the experience of the world-class METASeS consulting team in building and advising on security programs, Secure Internet Practices: Best Practices for Securing Systems in the Internet and e-Business Age shows you how to create a workable security program to protect your organization's Internet risk.
