A Practical Approach
- Jan Harrington, Professor and Department Chair, Computer Science, Marist College, Hyde Park, New York, U.S.A.
Network Security is a comprehensive resource written for anyone who plans or implements network security measures, including managers and practitioners. It offers a valuable dual perspective on security: how your network looks to hackers who want to get inside, and how you need to approach it on the inside to keep them at bay.You get all the hands-on technical advice you need to succeed, but also higher-level administrative guidance for developing an effective security policy. There may be no such thing as absolute security, but, as the author clearly demonstrates, there is a huge difference between the protection offered by routine reliance on third-party products and what you can achieve by actively making informed decisions. Youâll learn to do just that with this bookâs assessments of the risks, rewards, and trade-offs related implementing security measures.
