"The one true power of the executive is the power to appoint. The one true measure of the executive is what did not happen on their watch. These truths are rarely acknowledged, and uncommonly understood. Jennifer Bayuk understands them as she has lived them, and she has lived them because she understands. She does not write for everyone; perhaps she writes for you.'
"This book is an excellent read of the practical aspects of building, marketing and maintaining an effective security program, within a business enterprise. It tells it like it is, including how to deal with corporate culture.'"
"Jennifer Bayuk is one of the savviest security professionals in the field today, and so it is no surprise that Enterprise Security for the Executive is an important contribution. It addresses the most challenging and pressing information security issue: the lack of practical experience and institutional memory at the C-level and in the Board Room. Put this book in the hands of a responsible executive, and you have something more formidable than the most sophisticated authentication system or the most powerful crypto -- someone who can make a mandate meaningful and a plan pervasive."
"Enterprise Security for the Executive is a refreshing approach to the realities of what is really needed in the executive ranks to facilitate and drive results around improving your security posture and minimizing your risk exposures. Bayuk provides proven insights around the cultural and political minefields one needs to navigate as you build consensus to drive change across the enterprise. Tone at the top is the motivator in the business world cultural environment. Without it you will struggle to reach meaningful goals and at best will effectuate departmental or perhaps divisional improvements in your profile. This is a must read for anyone who is trying to learn more effective ways to get the 'people and process' side of the equation right before they consider technology."
"One of the challenges that we have found over the years is translating 'security speak' into clear business terms and articulating the return on security investment (ROSI). Jennifer, based on a successful career in Information Security, explains the successful way to accomplish this difficult mission. A must read for security and non security professionals."
"Jennifer's book will prove invaluable to anyone concerned with improving security!' "
"Author Jennifer Bayuk, a well-known thought leader among information security professionals, masterfully draws from her broad experience to guide readers easily through the complexities of security governance."
"Enterprise Security for the Executive is a fantastic book. It provides a no-nonsense approach to attaining effective information security. For those executives that are serious about security, the book will be their guiding light down the dark information security tunnel. In its 8 chapters (and a case study), the book focuses on a straightforward and plain-speaking approach to enable CxO's to get a handle on information security. As such, it is hoped that Enterprise Security for the Executive will soon find its way onto every executives required reading list."
