The costs and cures for business data breaches

Within organizations, information security should be everyone’s responsibility — whether you’re a technical person or not. That’s the general theme for Michael Santarcangelo’s book, Into the Breach. When a corporation has a major data loss, it affects the brand, the customers, and often the bottom line.

A primer on protecting corporate data, the book delves into the human factor of data security, strategies for protecting information, measuring success, techniques and costs of compliance, and additional resources.

For this small business security–themed issue of Windows Secrets, Michael Santarcangelo is giving all subscribers an excerpt of Chapter 2, “People just want to do their jobs.” It relates the common myths about information security and the perplexing human element of information security. We’re sure you’ll find it interesting reading.
