CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Information risk is endemic in any modern organisation. From the potential for
losing sensitive information to a full-system crash that incapacitates the
company, the consequences can be disastrous. Yet more than half of all
companies have no formal risk management practices in place, meaning they are
unable to be sure their systems are secure, reliable or resilient. This pocket
guide addresses the scope of risks involved in a modern IT system, and outlines
strategies for working through the process of putting risk management at the
heart of your corporate culture. Given that no two companies are the same, this
pocket guide should not be taken as a step-by-step guide, but should provide
decision makers with a solid overview of the factors they need to consider and
a framework for implementing a regime that suits their needs. It provides a
checklist of steps that companies need to take to safeguard against various
threats, highlights potential vulnerabilities and lists methodologies for
mitigating against the risks. This pocket guide draws on previous works by
senior security advisory bodies - in particular the US National Institute of
Standards and Technology, which has produced numerous landmark 'Special
Publications' on the subject, and various UK government guidelines drawn up in
the wake of high-profile data breaches. UK governmental and industry white
papers were also consulted during research, including interviews with security
analysts and board-level risk management practitioners.
