Before 1995, most books on Internet security concentrated on technical issues. But as more businesses scramble online, technical expertise must be augmented with sound business explanations of why, when and how to implement security measures. This book is highly recommended reading both for managers who need to understand the issues involved, and
for technically-oriented systems administrators who need to learn how to think and communicate about security from a business perspective -- and not just the nibbles, bits, and sockets.
