Addressing those risks is critical to ensuring the ongoing success of our organizations. This presentation introduces information security principles that we can reliably use to better understand and address our security needs. It is an introductory resource for business leaders and managers who are new to information security, but are being called upon to protect and sustain their information systems and the processes that rely upon them.

  • Executives looking for proven practices to better understand their information security needs
