Book Description

August 22, 2002 020171972X 978-0201719727 1
First came Melissa. Then the I Love You virus. Then Code Red and Nimda. The cumulative effects of these successfully orchestrated attacks are taking their toll on the Internet economy. At a minimum, users are frustrated and their confidence is shaken. On the other end of the scale, these attacks can be devastating from a financial standpoint. It is easy to see that providing enterprise security is a critical and potentially overwhelming task, but managers have no excuse for not being prepared. The technologies of the Internet remain a significant drawing card to the business community. So what is the IT manager to do? The challenge is in devising an enterprise security strategy that will defend against all forms of attack. This book is precisely the guide that managers need. Enterprise Security allows the manager to analyze their infrastructure, spot potential weaknesses, and build a formidable defense. Written for professionals charged with defending enterprises, whether large or small, this book provides state-of-the-art guidelines and key advice for making sure that your organization's enterprise is well guarded.

From the Back Cover

E-Business is on the rise, but so are the likelihood and severity of computer attacks. Melissa, the Love Bug, Nimda, and Reezak all caught the e-Business community off guard, costing billions of dollars in lost productivity and damage. Maintaining enterprise security is now, without question, a crucial aspect of doing business in today's Internet-based economy.

Enterprise Security: The Manager's Defense Guide is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art handbook for harnessing e-Business security. It examines the most recent attack strategies and offers specific techniques for combating attempts at data infiltration, destruction, and denial-of-service attacks. Understanding that security must be incorporated within multiple levels of e-Business technology and practice, the author presents measures for securing your system platform, applications, operating environment, processes, and communication links. He explains how the traditional security technologies of firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs) can be integrated with risk management, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, and content management for a comprehensive security plan.

You will find in-depth coverage of such topics as:

  • The goals and sophisticated tools of today's hackers
  • The advantages and shortcomings of firewalls and VPNs
  • Incorporating security into application development
  • TCP/IP attacks, including SYN Flood and Land attacks
  • Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks
  • ICMP directed broadcast and Smurf bandwidth attacks
  • The Bubble Boy virus
  • JavaScript attacks
  • Adding TCP Wrappers and security in layers
  • Guidelines for vulnerability assessment and risk management

Several informative appendixes enumerate the top twenty enterprise vulnerabilities, provide an incident response form, discuss how to harden the often targeted Windows 2000 operating system, and examine denial-of-service attacks in depth.

Featuring the latest in attack technology and defenses, this book is an invaluable resource for IT managers and professionals who must remain a step ahead of the enemy in the ongoing security arms race.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, concise, to the point infosec title April 19, 2003
Format:Paperback
It is ironic that the advent of the computer promised to dramatically reduce paper usage; today's 1,000-page-plus computer-security tomes have probably single-handedly deforested whole regions of the earth. A happy exception to this trend of titanic texts is Enterprise Security: The Manager's Defense Guide; which is relatively concise yet highly informative.
It provides a good overview of core information security issues and concepts. It takes a big-picture approach to information systems security, not bogging down the reader in arcane minutiae.
Overall, it has a more management- and process-oriented look at security and it a valuable title for anyone needing to know about information systems security without sacrificing a forest in the process.
