MAIN LESSONS FROM THE BOOK 
Throughout this book, we have related our hard-earned experience through advice and stories. We endeavored to be specific to the challenge, whether it’s with time management or workplace bullies. After all, it’s usually best to tailor the advice to the situation! Still, there are a few principles that you can carry with you throughout your career. 
KNOW YOURSELF AND BE TRUE TO YOURSELF 
In order to choose your path, you need to know yourself— your strengths, values, and goals. What you are good at or have a natural talent for can inform you of which careers you are most likely to succeed in. Your values are the kinds of causes and people you want to work for and which practice you prefer. And your goals—those are your dreams, where you want to be in the future. Once you are certain of these things, the way forward will become clearer. 
For some people, this self-awareness comes easily, but others have to work hard for self-discovery. Even if you think you know yourself, it helps to ask yourself questions. Finding out how you best communicate, which environments enable you to be most efficient, and which leadership styles you work best under will help you find your place in the workforce. 
A lot of this is learned through trial and error, and that’s okay! Life is a journey of learning, and you discover more and more about yourself along the way.

    Named one of Forbes' Top Ten Business Books American Marketing Association Berry Book Award Winner International Book Award Winner  American Business Awards Silver Medalist Business Book Awards Finalist for International Book of the YearA book for a different breed of business leader, one who looks beyond the moment to create a life of significance.Most of us are familiar with the traditional way of looking at legacy—something preserved in the past. Traditional legacy is all around us, evidenced by the steady churn of autobiographies, bequests, commemorations, and dedications we are forever leaving in our collective cultural wake. This is not the legacy you will find in this book.Legacy in the Making celebrates an active, dynamic form of "modern legacy," seen through the eyes of a select group of extraordinary men and women who are pursuing their enduring ambitions in the age of now. More than caretakers of the past, these modern legacy builders are also the authors of a vital today and tomorrow. Rather than leaving their legacies behind them, they are looking ahead to harness their long-term ambitions and inspire others to help carry them forward. These are not static, traditional legacies. These are legacies in the making.

    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. This is a job that few of us have ever been trained to do; however, the stakes have never been higher. 
     
    What You'll Find Inside: 
    
    VULNERABILITY MANAGEMENT: THE CIO’S OTHER JOB
    
    KEVIN MITNICK SPEAKS ABOUT IT SECURITY
    
    DATA PROTECTION SECRETS: CIOS KNOW THAT IT STARTS AT THE ENDPOINT
    
    THE INSIDER THREAT: WHAT CIOS NEED TO KNOW
    
    
     
    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. However, by taking the time to listen to what reformed hackers have to tell us, you'll be able to prioritize the threats and focus your time and energy where they'll do the most good. 
     
    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. Follow the suggestions in this book and you'll have successfully secured your company's IT resources.
