Cyber security does not have to be complicated. As a matter of fact, the more complicated, the more vulnerable your network will be.
For a small business, county government or anyone who has responsibility for protecting the data and access to their network, this is a good basic primer to explain the fundamentals of cyber security.
Part of this is the realization that cyber security is more than technology. It includes architecture, hardware, software, personnel and policies as well.
First you must determine what your priorities are. What is most important to protect? The author very clearly describes the “Defender’s Dilemma” in which a cyber security program attempts to defend everything while the cyber attacker only has to find one hole in the defense. If you try to defend everything, you will fail.
Even if you are not the cyber security expert – especially if you aren’t – this book will provide you with the knowledge to be able to participate in the conversation, know what questions to ask, and be part of the solution…as you should.
