Information Security by Institute of Directors

Book Description

Information Security has never been a more critical business issue than it is today. The advent of ever more sophisticated information and communication technologies - including mobile and wireless - means that businesses are increasingly at risk from information security threats. Security incidents are already remarkably commonplace. According to the DTI's Information Security Breaches Survey 2004, the average UK business receives 20 or more viruses a year, while larger companies are subjected to one a week. Importantly, the survey also reveals that the vast majority of security breaches are the result of human error rather than flawed technology. The good news is that, in the face of such challenges, there are a number of basic measures that any business can adopt to minimise its exposure to the security threat. Many of these are inexpensive, simple to implement and relevant to companies of all sizes. "The Director's Guide" describes the key problem areas and gives clear direction on implementing a sound security defence strategy. It includes specific information and advice on: the main threats to your IT security; managing information security risk; the importance of 'the people factor'; and, what the law says. This guide is part of the "Director's Guide" series, published by the Institute of Directors, which gives UK directors clear, practical advice on key business issues, with real life case studies.
