Summary:
Praise for The Executive Guide to Information Security "In today's world, no business can operate without securing its computers. This book conveys that message in clear, concise terms and acts as a tremendous primer to CEOs." – from the Foreword by Richard A.

Schmidt, former cyber security advisor to the White House, CSO Microsoft, and VP CISO eBay "This book gives an excellent overview of the issues around securing information at a time in our history when information is extremely vulnerable to outside attack, retrieval, or manipulation.
