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. Surviving Security: How to Integrate People, Process, and Technology, Second Edition fills this void by explaining security through a holistic approach that considers both the overall security infrastructure and the roles of each individual component. This book 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, host security, server security, and more. After reading this book, you will know how to make educated security decisions that provide airtight, reliable solutions.
