: Today, the Internet is at a crossroads. Protecting security of consumers, businesses and the Internet infrastructure has never been more difficult. Cyber attacks on Internet commerce, vital business sectors and government agencies have grown exponentially. In the first quarter of this year, security experts were seeing almost 67,000 new malware threats on the Internet every day. This means more than 45 new viruses, worms, spy-ware and other threats were being created every minute. As these threats grow, security policy, technology and procedures need to evolve even faster to stay ahead of the threats. This book explores a new framework for addressing internet security issues for companies outside the orbit of critical infrastructure or key resources. While securing energy, financial, health and other resources remain vital, the future of innovation and the economy will depend on the success of Internet companies, and ensuring that these companies are trusted and secure is essential.
