Описание: What does a cyber security professional do? This is a question often posed by individuals who have heard a lot about security—especially the need to secure their electronic assets—but who are not entirely clear on what is involved. Cyber security involves a variety of things. Although we, the cyber security professionals, understand the various aspects of our jobs, it is often difficult to explain to people outside the profession (even our spouses) what exactly we do, and what exactly needs to be done to secure electronic assets.
The details of many professions are difficult to describe, so examples often offer the best means of explanation. Security is no different. In this book we hope to provide some insight into cyber security by using case studies to describe what a cyber security professional does.
We hope that this collection of case studies will serve as a tour of many of the issues that cyber security professionals face, not only in their careers but in their day-to-day lives.
One of the goals of this book, then, is to explain what we do; but there are other, more critical goals as well. Our primary aim is to provide practical examples of the types of issues that security professionals must be prepared to face in the execution of their duties.
