Use the methodology in this study guide to design, manage, and operate a balanced enterprise cybersecurity program that is pragmatic and realistic in the face of resource constraints and other real-world limitations. This guide is an instructional companion to the book Enterprise Cybersecurity: How to Build a Successful Cyberdefense Program Against Advanced Threats. The study guide will help you understand the book’s ideas and put them to work. The guide can be used for self-study or in the classroom.

Enterprise cybersecurity is about implementing a cyberdefense program that will succeed in defending against real-world attacks. While we often know what should be done, the resources to do it often are not sufficient. The reality is that the Cybersecurity Conundrum―what the defenders request, what the frameworks specify, and what the budget allows versus what the attackers exploit―gets in the way of what needs to be done. Cyberattacks in the headlines affecting millions of people show that this conundrum fails more often than we would prefer.

Cybersecurity professionals want to implement more than what control frameworks specify, and more than what the budget allows. Ironically, another challenge is that even when defenders get everything that they want, clever attackers are extremely effective at finding and exploiting the gaps in those defenses, regardless of their comprehensiveness. Therefore, the cybersecurity challenge is to spend the available budget on the right protections, so that real-world attacks can be thwarted without breaking the bank.

People involved in or interested in successful enterprise cybersecurity can use this study guide to gain insight into a comprehensive framework for coordinating an entire enterprise cyberdefense program.

What You’ll Learn:
  • Know the methodology of targeted attacks and why they succeed
  • Master the cybersecurity risk management process
  • Understand why cybersecurity capabilities are the foundation of effective cyberdefenses
  • Organize a cybersecurity program's policy, people, budget, technology, and assessment
  • Assess and score a cybersecurity program
  • Report cybersecurity program status against compliance and regulatory frameworks
  • Use the operational processes and supporting information systems of a successful cybersecurity program
  • Create a data-driven and objectively managed cybersecurity program
  • Discover how cybersecurity is evolving and will continue to evolve over the next decade

Extremely Useful Guide

This book is extremely useful as a "how-to" guide for creating or improving your corporate information security program. There are plenty of books out there covering various technical aspects of cybersecurity but very few that describe the best overall approach to using your people, processes and technologies to defend your IT assets. "Enterprise Cybersecurity" does that job well - both as a step by step guide and as a very well organized general reference.
