Book Description :

The primary goal of the Information Protection Playbook is to serve as a comprehensive resource for information protection (IP) professionals who must provide adequate information security at a reasonable cost. It emphasizes a holistic view of IP: one that protects the applications, systems, and networks that deliver business information from failures of confidentiality, integrity, availability, trust and accountability, and privacy. Using the guidelines provided in the Information Protection Playbook, security and information technology (IT) managers will learn how to implement the five functions of an IP framework: governance, program planning, risk management, incident response management, and program administration. These functions are based on a model promoted by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) and validated by thousands of Certified Information Security Managers. The five functions are further broken down into a series of objectives or milestones to be achieved in order to implement an IP framework. The extensive appendices included at the end of the book make for an excellent resource for the security or IT manager building an IP program from the ground up. They include, for example, a board of directors presentation complete with sample slides; an IP policy document checklist; a risk prioritization procedure matrix, which illustrates how to classify a threat based on a scale of high, medium, and low; a facility management self-assessment questionnaire; and a list of representative job descriptions for roles in IP. The Information Protection Playbook is a part of Elsevier's Security Executive Council Risk Management Portfolio, a collection of real world solutions and "how-to" guidelines that equip executives, practitioners, and educators with proven information for successful security and risk management programs. Emphasizes information protection guidelines that are driven by business objectives, laws, regulations, and industry standards Draws from successful practices in global organizations, benchmarking, advice from a variety of subject-matter experts, and feedback from the organizations involved with the Security Executive Council Includes 11 appendices full of the sample checklists, matrices, and forms that are discussed in the book

Workplace Security Playbook: The New Manager’s Guide to Security Risk is a set of comprehensive risk management guidelines for companies that have other business functions coordinating security. When an employee without a security background is charged with the protection of people, facilities, or assets, the Workplace Security Playbook can be his or her go-to resource for security procedures and recommendations. Business risks are not static: They change and grow as a company changes and grows. New technology, increasing business competition, and social and cultural developments all contribute to new security risks and trends. With this in mind, the Workplace Security Playbook focuses on performance guidelines, rather than prescriptive standards. Using performance guidelines helps assess the individual, changing business and security needs that a manager may face. The easily implementable recommendations included in this book are categorized by issues. In addition to security performance guidelines, topics include the elements of a facility security program, how to conduct security surveys and validation testing, steps for performing workplace investigations and inspections, and procedures for emergency and special security situations. An entire chapter is dedicated to describing the resources available to a new security manager, and another provides an outline for building a customized reference source of local security information.

Book Description :

The real-world guide to defeating hackers and keeping your business secure Many books discuss the technical underpinnings and complex configurations necessary for cybersecurity—but they fail to address the everyday steps that boards, managers, and employees can take to prevent attacks. The Cybersecurity Playbook is the step-by-step guide to protecting your organization from unknown threats and integrating good security habits into everyday business situations. This book provides clear guidance on how to identify weaknesses, assess possible threats, and implement effective policies. Recognizing that an organization’s security is only as strong as its weakest link, this book offers specific strategies for employees at every level. Drawing from her experience as CMO of one of the world’s largest cybersecurity companies, author Allison Cerra incorporates straightforward assessments, adaptable action plans, and many current examples to provide practical recommendations for cybersecurity policies. By demystifying cybersecurity and applying the central concepts to real-world business scenarios, this book will help you: Deploy cybersecurity measures using easy-to-follow methods and proven techniques Develop a practical security plan tailor-made for your specific needs Incorporate vital security practices into your everyday workflow quickly and efficiently The ever-increasing connectivity of modern organizations, and their heavy use of cloud-based solutions present unique challenges: data breaches, malicious software infections, and cyberattacks have become commonplace and costly to organizations worldwide. The Cybersecurity Playbook is the invaluable guide to identifying security gaps, getting buy-in from the top, promoting effective daily security routines, and safeguarding vital resources. Strong cybersecurity is no longer the sole responsibility of IT departments, but that of every executive, manager, and employee.

Book Description :

Deliver enterprise data analytics success by following Prashanth’s prescriptive and practical techniques. Today, organizations across the globe are looking at ways to glean insights from data analytics and make good business decisions. However, not many business enterprises are successful in data analytics. According to Gartner, 80% of analytics programs do not deliver business outcomes. Mckinsey consulting says, less than 20% of the companies have achieved analytics at scale. So, how can a business enterprise avoid analytics failure and deliver business results? This book provides ten key analytics best practices that will improve the odds of delivering enterprise data analytics solutions successfully. It is intended for anyone who has a stake and interest in deriving insights from data analytics. The three key differentiating aspects of this book are: · Practicality. This book offers prescriptive, superior, and practical guidance. · Completeness. This book looks at data analytics holistically across the four key data analytics domains - data management, data engineering, data science, and data visualization. · Neutrality. This book is technologically agnostic and looks at analytics concepts without any reference to commercial analytics products and technologies. Dr. Southekal proves why he is one of the leading thinkers on data and analytics today. ‘Analytics Best Practices’ is an indispensable guide for business leaders and those looking to get into the analytics field on the nuances, challenges, and immense opportunities with data. Douglas B. Laney Principal, Data & Analytics Strategy, Caserta, and author of “Infonomics” Dr. Southekal’s book is a treasure trove of best practices and practical examples from the field of Data Analytics. Upen Varanasi CEO & Co-Founder, Riversand Technologies What I like about this book is its focus on real-world best practices with an extensive set of practical tips and tricks. It provides an important bridge between the data management and business operations sides of a business. Michael Wade Professor of Innovation & Strategy, IMD Business School Prashanth’s book is accessible and practical – an excellent guide for corporate leaders who want to produce meaningful business results from the use of data and analytics to create true business value. Irina Pelphrey Senior Director, Walmart Corporation This book is a must on the desks of business executives and decision makers at all levels in an organization who want to truly understand what it takes to become a successful data driven organization. Ram Kumar Senior Vice President, Quantium Dr. Prashanth Southekal has created a practical guidebook for realizing business value from data and analytics investments. Highly recommended. Randy Bean Founder & CEO, NewVantage Partners Prashanth’s second book starts with the right title – it is always about BUSINESS VALUE. The practices explored here will help anyone interested to achieve these goals. Mario Faria Gartner Research Board The Analytics Best Practices book is one of the most comprehensive and well-researched books I have come across on data analytics. Ameet Shetty Former Chief Data and Analytics Officer, McDonald's Corporation I would encourage all professionals to read this easy to navigate, thoughtful and pragmatic book as it is relevant to all of us seeking to maximize the ROI for our organizations. Lisa M. Wardlaw Former EVP, Global Chief Digital Strategy Officer, MunichRe Deriving actionable insights from data requires that linkage to be clear between art and science and this book does just that. Chris Leonard, Director, Digital Strategy & Transformation, Plains Midstream Prashanth’s book simplifies the complex world of data analytics, and one to understand the drivers of bringing valued results to an organization.
