The intentions of the cyberterrorist, the cybercriminal, the cyberactivist and the state-sponsored hacker are not the same. They can all cause serious problems for your organisation, however, including information theft, disruption of normal operations and undermining your reputation or credibility.
Many books on cybersecurity focus on technical responses to these threats. As important as this is, human fallibility and other known vulnerabilities will allow hackers to easily break into a system that has not taken account of these factors.
This book encourages cybersecurity professionals to take a wider view of what cybersecurity means, and to exploit international standards and best practice to create a culture of cybersecurity awareness within their organisation that supplements technology-based defences.
This second edition takes account of the changing threats in the cyber landscape, and includes an updated body of knowledge that describes how to acquire, develop, and sustain a secure information environment that goes beyond technology. This enables you to move towards a cyber aware organisational culture that is more robust and better able to deal with a wider range of threats.
Related references and recommendations for additional reading are included at the end of each chapter, making this a valuable resource for trainers and researchers, as well as cybersecurity practitioners.
