    As though staying on top of changing technology trends wasn’t enough, today's CIOs also find themselves being held responsible for securing the IT department as well as the rest of the company.

    Your company's senior management knows even less about IT security than you do. However, they view you as being the person who can keep them safe. If you can accomplish this task, then you will have secured your relationship with the CEO and CFO, if not then they may be looking for a new CIO. 
     
    In order to successful secure your department and your company, you are going to have to start at the network's endpoints and work your way in. This will involve creating security policies that everyone can live with and performing routine vulnerability management studies. 
     
    The key to any successful securing of a corporate network is to make sure that only the right people and applications are allowed to be there. This means that you'll need to implement an effective identify management program. You'll have to do the same thing for the applications that run on the company's network by creating a whitelisting solution that ensures that you are only executing the code that should be run. 
     
    At times dealing with the wide variety of IT security threats that your company will be facing will seem to be overwhelming.

    This book has been written in order to provide you with a great starting point for ensuring that you've done everything that you can to protect your company. We'll show you what you need to take care of and how the bad guys are going to try to break into your networks.
