Network Forensics Book Review:

An up-to-date, comprehensive, practical, guide to network forensics for information security professionals at all levels of experience * *Presents a proven, start-to-finish methodology for managing any network forensics investigation. *Enables professionals to uncover powerful forensic evidence from routers, firewalls, IDS, web proxies, and many other network devices. *Based on the world's first comprehensive Network Forensics training course, offered by the SANS Institute - a course that now sells out months in advance. Network forensics is transforming the way investigators examine computer crime: they have discovered that the network holds far more evidence than could ever be retrieved from a local hard drive. Network forensic skills are in especially short supply, and professionals are flocking to the scarce resources available for mastering these skills. This is a comprehensive, practical, and up to- date book on the subject. Building on their pioneering SANS Institute course, top network forensics experts Jonathan Ham and Sherri Davidoff take readers through an exciting, entertaining, and technically rigorous journey through the skills and principles of successful network investigation. One step at a time, they demonstrate how to recover usable forensic evidence from firewalls, web proxies, IDS, routers, wireless access points, and even raw packet captures. Coverage includes: * *Understanding the unique challenges associated with network investigation. *The state-of-the-art OSCAR Network Forensics Investigative Methodology. *Acquiring evidence passively, actively, and interactively. *Aggregating, correlating, and analyzing event logs. *Investigating compromised encryption and SSL interception Every section contains a real-world case study, and the book culminates with a 'Capstone' case study walking through an entire investigation from start to finish, and challenging readers to solve the crime themselves.

Information Security Cyber Threats and Vulnerabilities Place Federal Systems at Risk Book Review:

Information security is a critical consideration for any organization that depends on info. systems and computer networks to carry out its mission or business. It is especially important for gov¿t. agencies, where maintaining the public's trust is essential. The need for a vigilant approach to info. security has been demonstrated by the pervasive and sustained computerbased (cyber) attacks againimpactst the U.S. and others that continue to pose a potentially devastating to systems and the operations and critical infrastructures that they support. This report describes: (1) cyber threats to fed. info. systems and cyberbased critical infrastructures; and (2) control deficiencies that make these systems and infrastructures vulnerable to those threats.

Small Business Information Security Book Review:

For some small businesses, the security of their information, systems, and networks might not be a high priority, but for their customers, employees, and trading partners it is very important. The size of a small business varies by type of business, but typically is a business or organization with up to 500 employees. In the U.S., the number of small businesses totals to over 95% of all businesses. The small business community produces around 50% of our nation¿s GNP and creates around 50% of all new jobs in our country. Small businesses, therefore, are a very important part of our nation¿s economy. This report will assist small business management to understand how to provide basic security for their information, systems, and networks. Illustrations.

Physical and Logical Security Convergence Powered By Enterprise Security Management Book Review:

Government and companies have already invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the convergence of physical and logical security solutions, but there are no books on the topic. This book begins with an overall explanation of information security, physical security, and why approaching these two different types of security in one way (called convergence) is so critical in today’s changing security landscape. It then details enterprise security management as it relates to incident detection and incident management. This is followed by detailed examples of implementation, taking the reader through cases addressing various physical security technologies such as: video surveillance, HVAC, RFID, access controls, biometrics, and more. This topic is picking up momentum every day with every new computer exploit, announcement of a malicious insider, or issues related to terrorists, organized crime, and nation-state threats The author has over a decade of real-world security and management expertise developed in some of the most sensitive and mission-critical environments in the world Enterprise Security Management (ESM) is deployed in tens of thousands of organizations worldwide

Information Security Risk Analysis Second Edition Book Review:

The risk management process supports executive decision-making, allowing managers and owners to perform their fiduciary responsibility of protecting the assets of their enterprises. This crucial process should not be a long, drawn-out affair. To be effective, it must be done quickly and efficiently. Information Security Risk Analysis, Second Edition enables CIOs, CSOs, and MIS managers to understand when, why, and how risk assessments and analyses can be conducted effectively. This book discusses the principle of risk management and its three key elements: risk analysis, risk assessment, and vulnerability assessment. It examines the differences between quantitative and qualitative risk assessment, and details how various types of qualitative risk assessment can be applied to the assessment process. The text offers a thorough discussion of recent changes to FRAAP and the need to develop a pre-screening method for risk assessment and business impact analysis.
