Summary Previous information security references do not address the gulf between general security awareness and the specific technical steps that need to be taken to protect information assets. This book fills this void by explaining security via a holistic approach that considers both the overall security infrastructure and the roles of each individual component. It provides a blueprint for creating and executing sound security policy. The author examines the costs and complications involved, covering security measures such as encryption, authentication, firewalls, intrusion detection, remote access.
