By Carl Young

Information safeguard technology: Measuring the Vulnerability to facts Compromises presents the medical historical past and analytic thoughts to appreciate and degree the chance linked to info safeguard threats. this isn't a conventional IT safety publication because it contains equipment of data compromise that aren't as a rule addressed in textbooks or journals.

In specific, it explores the actual nature of data safeguard probability, and in so doing exposes sophisticated, but revealing, connections among info safeguard, actual safety, details expertise, and data concept. This booklet can also be a pragmatic hazard administration consultant, because it explains the elemental medical ideas which are at once correct to info protection, specifies a dependent technique to guage a number of threats and assault vectors, identifies exact metrics that time to root motives of expertise threat, and allows estimates of the effectiveness of possibility mitigation.

This publication is the definitive reference for scientists and engineers with out historical past in defense, and is perfect for defense analysts and practitioners who lack medical education. Importantly, it offers defense execs with the instruments to prioritize details safety controls and thereby boost inexpensive chance administration thoughts.

  • Specifies the analytic and clinical equipment essential to estimate the vulnerability to info loss for a spectrum of threats and assault vectors
  • Represents a special therapy of the nexus among actual and knowledge defense that comes with probability analyses of IT gadget emanations, noticeable info, audible info, actual details resources, and virtualized IT environments
  • Identifies metrics that time to the foundation reason behind details expertise probability and thereby support safety execs in constructing danger administration strategies
  • Analyzes quite a few hazard eventualities and specifies countermeasures in keeping with derived quantitative metrics
  • Provides bankruptcy introductions and end-of-chapter summaries to reinforce the reader’s adventure and facilitate an appreciation for key concepts
