3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Gunnar Peterson on June 22, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is unique, as far as I know, as a very timely analysis on technical issues and their impact on risk management.

Chapter 1 looks at three power laws for scaling networks - Sarnoff, Metcalfe and Reed. Valuing assets is a precursor to any risk management activity. Chapter 2 looks at the differences between traditional risk and Internet-style risks. There is an important distinction in perils and anomalies. Perils are defined as bugs and vulnerabilities. Anomalies are defined as the problems that arise once a vulnerability is exercised. There is also a section on monoculture which compares computing monoculture to bollweevils and other physical world monoculture risks.

Chapter 3 describes high level strategies like redundancy and backups for dealing with risks. These are high level not detailed operational planning, but they are useful for directors to plan what actions manage what risks. Federation is mentioned as having a positive impact on higher assurance integration between service providers and consumers. Another theme is the positive and negative aspects of decentralization, Quarterman concludes it is largely a positive development, and a decade and half into the web, that looks like a safe assumption.

For a book with Sarbanes in its title, there is not a ton of information on compliance. This is not a big a problem for me, since I, like this book, view compliance as a subset of risk management. Chapters 4-8 look at the implications of risk in various business sizes and verticals.

Chapter 6 examines some physical world controls that work fine in the real world but are insufficient in the digital world such as 4 digit PINs for ATMs. This chapter also covers various types of insurance schemes such as Cat Bonds.
