Summary of Cybersecurity for Executives
A Practical Guide
Keep your data safe in the face of intensifying cybersecurity risks.
Today’s executives must become adept at managing cybersecurity risk. You don’t need to learn the latest software patches or the intricacies of Estonian hack attacks. However, tech experts Gregory J. Touhill and C. Joseph Touhill say you do need to be aware of ever-evolving cybercrime, and know which questions to ask and how to manage a cybersecurity staff. The authors smoothly translate technical material for laypeople, including anecdotes and easy-to-digest checklists. Their practical guide offers step-by-step instructions for everything from managing passwords to dealing with a cybersecurity crisis in case you get hacked. getAbstract recommends this guide to any CEO, CIO, manager, entrepreneur or self-employed professional who needs to understand this constant danger.
In this summary, you will learn
- Where your cybersecurity is most vulnerable,
- What strategies to use to maintain your firm’s cybersecurity and
- How businesses should respond publicly to a cyberattack.
