Nearly every day we hear news that customer data has been compromised or new bugs have been discovered, leaving personal details open to the risk of falling into the wrong hands. Cyber security is more essential today than ever, not just in the workplace but at home too. This book covers the various types of cyber threat and explains what you can do to mitigate these risks and keep your data secure. The book is crucial reading for businesses wanting to better understand security risks and ensure the safety of organisational and customer data but will also be valuable to anyone concerned with data protection.
''The BCS Cyber Security book is well written and easy to read, which is unusual in a book addressing this subject matter. The author takes the time to describe his interpretation of "Cyber" as this term is often misused both within and outside the industry. The book makes many references to real world examples and their consequences. This helps to illuminate the threats and vulnerabilities and helps us understand the possible actions that should be taken. The book is well structured with two major sections; Cyber Security Problems - encompassing Cyber Security Issues, Targets, Vulnerabilities, Threats and Impacts and Improving Cyber Security - encompassing Risk Management, Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery and risk mitigations. The final part of the book is a comprehensive analysis of applicable standards, good practice guidelines and the law. This practitioners guide is a must have for those with an interest in information security, either as a potential career or to expand their general business knowledge. Highly recommended!''
