About the report

The Current Business Environment

Successful businesses use technology to create competitive advantages. Today's powerful data processing and networking technologies create unlimited opportunities for innovative new customer services, increased employee productivity, and higher profitability. Meanwhile, information is being transformed into an even more valuable business resource.

Yet, all the benefits of advanced technology can disappear in an instant if the system is not secure. Security measures must be implemented to safeguard data, software, and hardware against accidental or deliberate loss, disclosure, or corruption.

A Valuable Security Resource

The Information Technology Security Report, prepared by Systems Consultants Nederland (SCN) B.V., offers 400 pages of security strategies, implementation plans, and case studies. The report, which contains in-depth analyses, white papers, and articles written by international leaders in IT security, is designed to meet the need for information in the rapidly growing security industry.

The report examines every aspect of enterprise security, from controlling access to the building to protecting the computer network. Security assessment methodologies and outsourcing issues are also discussed. The report also comes with a CD-ROM that includes more in-depth security articles, sample security software, links to relevant security Web sites, and a complete copy of ICSA's Annual Firewall Buyer Guide.

Security Technologies and Techniques

The Information Technology Security Report offers detailed descriptions of the most effective security technologies and techniques used in the enterprise: firewalls, encryption, point-to-point tunneling protocol (PPTP), pretty good privacy (PGP), and virtual private networks (VPNs).

The report also examines the threat of viruses and the numerous tools available to help prevent them.

Internet Security Issues

Organizations are increasingly using public information infrastructures, such as the Internet, to improve communications and even increase profitibility. Although companies can benefit from having an Internet business presence, the increased use of Internet technology also increases the risk of a security breach.

The Information Technology Security Report explores the most effective Internet security tools:

  • Identification, authentication, and authorization on the Web
  • Smartcards
  • Internet protocol security (IPSec)
  • E-mail encryption
  • Secure sockets layer (SSL)

Business Continuity Planning

Despite all the precautions an organization may take to prevent both internal and external security breaches, they will undoubtedly occur.

The Information Technology Security Report offers critical solutions for forming a business continuity plan that will counteract interruptions to business activities and enable vital operations to continue.
