Verdasys announced today the release of the new book “Economics and Strategies of Data Security” by Dr. Dan Geer, Jr., Sc.D. The first in a series, this book explores the dramatic shift from infrastructure protection to information protection, explaining why data security is critical to business today. It describes how implementing successful data security solutions across sophisticated global organizations requires a new data-centric, risk-based and strategic approach and defines the concepts and economics of a sound data security strategy.
Designed to assist managers in understanding the risks and costs associated with data loss, the ideas expressed in this volume are ones discussed and refined in conversations with hundreds of CISO’s, CIO’s, CEO’s and business leaders. The goals of the book are to encourage discussion around the economics of data security, to define intelligent data-centric strategies and to develop a forward looking approach that will address data security needs both today and tomorrow.
The book will be formally introduced at the Information Systems Security Association, (ISSA) CISO Forum in Houston, TX on February 28 and 29. Dan will be the keynote speaker at the Thursday dinner and available to sign books at the forum on Friday.
The book will also be available online starting March 1, at www.verdasys.com/thoughtleader
