Overview

The first two of the above stories are based on fact. The third hasn't occurred -- yet. But how can you be sure that it won't?

Security Transformation shows you how to determine your company's biggest vulnerabilities, details the methods for treating those vulnerabilities, and provides the tools to help lift your information security program from a supporting role into one that advances your business goals and objectives. Accessible, nontechnical, and jargon-free, this timely book presents a practical approach for ensuring your company's ability to fully exploit the many profitable advantages of today's digital world while protecting itself against the unwanted intrusions that have become a fact of life.

Interviews with many renowned business and information security leaders including Compaq CEO Michael Capellas, VeriSign CEO Stratton Sclavos, and ExodusCommunications CEO Ellen Hancock, combine with KPMG's insightful commentary to illustrate the direct operational benefits of taking network security seriously.

Security Transformation covers everything from the psychological aspects of system security to the actual nuts and bolts of instituting a structured Enterprise Security Architecture -- one that effectively supports your company's business strategies and objectives. McCarthy and Campbell detail the often overlooked ROI that a sound security program can generate. They outline the critical role information security plays in engendering trust, value, and loyalty -- the foundation for all good relationships.

As everything from retail marketing through internal corporate communication takes advantage of the tremendous efficiencies and cost advantages of the World Wide Web, computer network security is no longer a little-noticed, back-office responsibility -- it is among the most critical issues facing businesses today. Security Transformation looks at the issue from every angle, and acquaints business decision makers with the bottom-line issues of security they need to understand in order to effectively transact business in an increasingly digital world.
