Free eBook on information security available from Lumension

Lumension Security : 28 August, 2008  (New Product)
Interactive book provides insight for senior management into the effectiveness of information security
While the world of trouble caused by security breaches is obvious every time an executive picks up the newspaper, many CEOs aren't sure if their company could be in the headlines next. The difficulty lies in understanding what comprises a defensible security posture without the usual information security jargon or sales pitch. In an effort to remove the disconnect between the information security personnel and top decision makers, security management vendor Lumension Security has released a complementary eBook titled "Seven Things Every CEO Should Know about Information Security." The eBook is available as a free download from the Lumension web site.

In the eBook, Lumension Security CEO Patrick Clawson speaks directly to CEOs about today's pressing information security challenges and outlines best practice recommendations for making leadership decisions that will protect their organisations. The eBook devotes 16 interactive pages—complete with anecdotes and analysis from leading CISOs, CEOs and industry analysts—to covering the following seven mission-critical information security issues:.

* Security is a Boardroom Issue.
* Cost of Ignoring Security.
* Well-Organised and Focused Cybercriminals.
* Increasing Insider Threats.
* Borderless Enterprise.
* Emergence of the Borderless Enterprise.
* Traditional Security No Longer Works.
* Policy and Process Reign Supreme.
* The Security Role of the CEO.

"Seeing as security can have such a dramatic effect on an organisation's bottom line, CEOs know that they need to provide strong leadership on the matter of Information Security," said Patrick Clawson, Chairman and CEO, Lumension Security. "As a CEO, I understand the complexities and nuances of leading an organisation to profitability and success, and as an expert in the security industry, I also have a clear picture on how the very best businesses protect themselves. I wrote this book so that every executive decision maker who reads it will come away with actionable advice on how to set a culture of security that permeates into every silo and department and remote office that they maintain."
