Examine the evolving enterprise security landscape and discover how to manage and survive risk. While based primarily on the authorâs experience and insights at major companies where he has served as CISO and CSPO, the book also includes many examples from other well-known companies and provides guidance for a management-level audience.
Managing Risk and Information Security provides thought leadership in the increasingly important area of enterprise information risk and security. It describes the changing risk environment and why a fresh approach to information security is needed. Because almost every aspect of an enterprise is now dependent on technology not only for internal operations but increasing as a part of product or service creation, the focus of IT security must shift from locking down assets to enabling the business while managing and surviving risk.
This edition discusses business risk from a broader perspective, including privacy and regulatory considerations. It describes the increasing number of threats and vulnerabilities and offers strategies for developing solutions. These include discussions of how enterprises can take advantage of new and emerging technologiesâsuch as social media and the huge proliferation of Internet-enabled devicesâwhile minimizing risk.

"Harkinsâ logical, methodical approach as a CISO to solving the most complex cybersecurity problems is reflected in the lucid style of this book. His enlightened approach to intelligence-based security infrastructure and risk mitigation is our best path forward if we are ever to realize the vast potential of the innovative digital world we are creating while reducing the threats to manageable levels. The author shines a light on that path in a comprehensive yet very readable way." âArt Coviello, Former CEO and Executive Chairman, RSA
