by Paul Ferrillo and Christophe Veltsos is an excellent, concise survey of the modern information security threatscape and battle field. Is it for Engineers? Executives? Analysts? Private sector? Public sector? Yes. A recurring theme in the book (and fast becoming self-evident fact) is how cyber risk today is business risk, and awareness of it needs to be permeate successful organizations. One of the greatest values of this book is how it speaks in a common language addressing information security issues and impacts throughout the organizational hierarchy (regardless of industry), because almost as important as the hard skills of incident response, containment and eradication are the soft skills, the ability of information security professionals to convey visibility of cyber risk to the highest levels of stakeholders and executive leadership.
A concise tome that belongs within arms reach of all information security professionals
In Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now: Game Changing Concepts on AI and Cyber Governance Solutions for Executives, authors Christophe Veltsos and Paul Ferrillo have written a practical guide to help information security and IT professionals understand and manage the ever-changing environment of information security and data risk.
The following are the 11 chapters in the book, and they provide the reader with an easy to read overview of the current status of information security and risk:
Time to Take Back Control of your Cybersecurity Now
Federal Regulation and Oversight — Today and Tomorrow
Understanding and Implementing the NIST Cybersecurity Framework
Spear Phishing Attacks — Don’t Take the Bait! Don’t Click on the Link!
Incident Response — Plans, Reality, and Lessons Learned
Using Cyber Intelligent Solutions to Defeat Hackers (or at least level the playing field)
Cybersecurity Fiduciary Duties of Directors and Officers
Insurance for Cyber Exposures; Critical Considerations for Effective Insurance Purchasing
Cyber Risk Reporting and Governance
Trust But Verify — Asking the Tough Questions
The Great Miracles and Challenges of Cloud Computing
The book lays out the tasks that need to be done to ensure the entire lifecycle of information security tasks are dealt with. The many suggestions are strategic and tactical, to which the reader can ensure the items are appropriately tasked.
The word control in the title is intentional. With the problem of shadow IT, where systems (and often very large ones) are deployed outside the purview of the CIO, CTO and CISO; IT quickly becomes and out of control area. The book is meant to regain control from a security perspective.
This is a handy read for anyone who wants to know about the current state of information security, and what the best practices are to ensure their enterprise is effectively dealing with the most challenging threats. The book provides just enough information and data to be used as good starting point. What it lacks in depth, it makes up in breadth.
The authors write in a clear and easy to read style that is both elucidating and an interesting read. While meant for those tasked with information security duties; anyone involved in security, information technology or data management will certainly find a lot of value in Take Back Control of Your Cybersecurity Now.
