..."delivers practical security advice on a range of issues." -- Internet Works * 78 per cent of large businesses suffered at least one malicious security breach in 2002 * Effective strategies for managing risks online and defense against the internet's "dark side" * "Best practice" advice from leading advisers and case studies from successful firms The second edition of this invaluable book highlights the key issues and identifies best practice in online risk management, taking the premise that information security is no longer an issue confined to the IT department but is critical to all operational functions: finance, HR, marketing, production etc. Nor are its solutions purely technical. With two thirds of security breaches said to be caused by human error, management controls and processes are equally important. "The Secure Online Business Handbook" draws on the experience of leading firms and their advisers and uses up-to-date case studies to illustrate "best practice" in online risk management. New features include chapters on broadband and biometrics, and an in-depth look at online payments, including in particular the spate of attacks in 2003 using worms, viruses and phish.
