From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
In one extraordinarily readable book, both executives and IT professionals can get a complete briefing on today's best practices for Internet security -- from planning through deployment, and beyond. More than that: They get the tools they need to take action.
Juanita Ellis and Timothy Speed show how to maximize security without transforming your Internet presence into a fortress no customer or partner dares broach. They cover the technologies and tools -- making cryptography, public-key infrastructure, and the rest a whole lot easier to understand than the usual treatments.
There's a full chapter on choosing the right firewall -- including a detailed set of evaluation guidelines, a six-page Assessment Form, and a list of vendors to start from.
That's the best thing about this book: hands-on materials you can use to start defining and implementing your own solutions. A Technology Security Review form for assessing the security risks associated with any technology or service within the organization. Corporate security and acceptable use policy outlines. A sample plan for rolling out PKI. Formulas for quantifying risks vs. the costs of addressing them.
