Security Risk Management is the definitive guide for building or running an information security risk management program. This book teaches practical techniques that will be used on a daily basis, while also explaining the fundamentals so students understand the rationale behind these practices. It explains how to perform risk assessments for new IT projects, how to efficiently manage daily risk activities, and how to qualify the current risk level for presentation to executive level management. While other books focus entirely on risk analysis methods, this is the first comprehensive text for managing security risks. This book will help you to break free from the so-called best practices argument by articulating risk exposures in business terms. It includes case studies to provide hands-on experience using risk assessment tools to calculate the costs and benefits of any security investment. It explores each phase of the risk management lifecycle, focusing on policies and assessment processes that should be used to properly assess and mitigate risk. It also presents a roadmap for designing and implementing a security risk management program. This book will be a valuable resource for CISOs, security managers, IT managers, security consultants, IT auditors, security analysts, and students enrolled in information security/assurance college programs.

In the world of digital products, the future is difficult to predict and success requires reducing the risk of failure. The book codifies and captures a common language and process for design sprints, making them accessible to anyone, and enabling businesses and teams to build products that are successful. The design sprint is the first and often the most significant phase of a design thinking process. It gets the entire product design and development team on the same page, reduces the risk of downstream mistakes, and helps validate customer and user interest in a proposed product idea. Written in a collegial, down-to-earth style with a pragmatic bend, this is the first book that specifically focuses on the design sprint methodology. * Get an eye-opening approach to the product design process that results in better, faster outcomes * Learn the design sprint process from start to finish, including essential tools, tips, and best practices * Explore interviews and cases on design sprints from professionals across the design industry
This practical book examines real-world scenarios where DNNs-the algorithms intrinsic to much of AI-are used daily to process image, audio, and video data. Author Katy Warr considers attack motivations, the risks posed by this adversarial input, and methods for increasing AI robustness to these attacks.
This book is intended for everyone in an organization who wishes to have a basic understanding of information security. Knowledge about information security is important to all employees. It makes no difference if you work in a profit- or non-profit organization because the risks that organizations face are similar for all organizations. It clearly explains the approaches that most organizations can consider and implement which helps turn Information Security management into an approachable, effective and well-understood tool. It covers:- The quality requirements an organization may have for information; - The risks associated with these quality requirements;- The countermeasures that are necessary to mitigate these risks;- Ensuring business continuity in the event of a disaster;- When and whether to report incidents outside the organization. The information security concepts in this revised edition are based on the ISO/IEC27001:2013 and ISO/IEC27002:2013 standards. But the text also refers to the other relevant international standards for information security. The text is structured as follows:- Fundamental Principles of Security and Information security and Risk management. - Architecture, processes and information, needed for basic understanding of what information security is about. - Business Assets are discussed. - Measures that can be taken to protect information assets. (Physical measures, technical measures and finally the organizational measures.) The primary objective of this book is to achieve awareness by students who want to apply for a basic information security examination. It is a source of information for the lecturer who wants to question information security students about their knowledge. Each chapter ends with a case study. In order to help with the understanding and coherence of each subject, these case studies include questions relating to the areas covered in the relevant chapters. Examples of recent events that illustrate the vulnerability of information are also included. This book is primarily developed as a study book for anyone who wants to pass the ISFS (Information Security Foundation) exam of EXIN. In an appendix an ISFS model exam is given, with feedback to all multiple choice options, so that it can be used as a training for the ´real´ ISFS exam.
This book is devoted to fuzzy quantitative studies in managerial science, discussing the philosophical background and decision-making essentials. For reference, a series of practical examples illustrate broad areas of application that are important in project risk management problems, and in complicated mega projects. Using computers to simulate human intelligence with fuzzy approaches is the basis of ´´Fuzzy-AI model,´´ which offers an efficient tool capable of simulating human intelligence in order to perform digitized decision inference and quantitative information management
