Sangster (Digital Raiders) uses his 25 years of experience in cybersecurity to show how businesses can cope with the new threats that enhanced global communication brings. His intended audience is principally, though not exclusively, small- to medium-sized businesses. Executives who run businesses of this size often wrongly assume that their firms lack enough significance to attract cyber attackers. In dealing with such threats, it is not enough to install security devices, as one must consider the risks to the business if the public learns of the attack. In one case Sangster discusses, a sign on an office wall warning employees not to use computers because of a security breach. A news reporter featured the sign in a story, resulting in bad publicity. In addition, Sangster maintains that firms should try to anticipate threats rather than just react to those that occur, but doing so is often frustrating and difficult. This anticipation will involve changes in the law.
VERDICT Business owners dealing with cybersecurity issues will find useful suggestions here, as well general readers interested in this vital problem.
