Book Description

If you’re a security or network professional; you already know the “don’ts and do’s”: run an AV software and firewalls; use encryption; watch network traffic; lock down your systems; hire expensive consultants; follow best practices; . . . but it’s simply not working. You are at greater risk than ever; and even the world’s most security-focused organizations are being victimized by massive cyber attacks.

In Thinking Security: Stopping Next Year’s Hackers (PDF); author Steven M. Bellovin provides a new way to think about security. As one of the world’s most respected security experts; Dr. Bellovin helps you gain new clarity about what you are doing and why you are doing it. He helps you understand security as a systems problem; including the role of the all-important human element; and shows you how to match your countermeasures to actual threats. You will learn how to move beyond last year’s checklists at a time when technology is changing so rapidly.

You will also understand how to design security architectures that don’t just prevent attacks wherever possible but also deal with the consequences of security failures. And; within the context of your coherent architecture; you will learn how to decide when to invest in a new security product and when not to.

Bellovin; co-author of the best-selling Firewalls and Internet Security; caught his first hackers in 1971. Drawing on his deep and extensive experience; he shares up-to-date; actionable; guidance on issues ranging from SSO and federated authentication to BYOD; virtualization; and cloud security.

Perfect security is almost impossible. Nevertheless; it is possible to build and operate security systems far more effectively. Bellovin’s Thinking Security will help you do just that.
