"News breaks all the time that hackers have attacked another company. Media outlets regularly cover cyber events. The president issues executive orders, and Congress explores cyber legislation. With all these events happening, business leaders must ask: What does this mean for my business and me? Facing Cyber Threats Head On looks at cyber security from a business leader perspective. By avoiding deep technical explanations of "how" and focusing on the "why" and "so what," Brian Minick guides readers to a better understanding of the challenges that cyber security presents to modern business and shows them what they can do as leaders to solve these challenges. He explains that technology is not the answer to cyber security issues. People, not technology, are behind emerging cyber risks. Understanding this brings to light that cyber protection is not a battle of technology against technology, but one of people against people. Based on this, a new approach is required-one that balances business risk with the cost of creating defenses that can change as quickly and often as attackers can. Readers will find here a ready resource for understanding the who, why, and how of cyber risks, and they will be better able to defend themselves and their businesses against them in the future. "
