" A primer in practical computer security aimed at those shopping, communicating, or doing business online almost everyone, in other words."
Viruses. Identity theft. Corporate espionage. National secrets compromised. Can anyone promise security in our digital world?
The man who introduced cryptography to the boardroom says no. But in this fascinating read, he shows us how to come closer by developing security measures in terms of context, tools, and strategy. Security is a process, not a product one that system administrators and corporate executives alike must understand to survive.
" This book is of value to anyone whose business depends on safe use of e-mail, the Web, or other networked communications. If that s not yet everybody, it soon will be."
Stephen H. Wildstrom, BusinessWeek
" It s not often that a truly outstanding book is written for both technical users and management. Fortunately, Secrets and Lies pulls off this feat rather well."
