Information security has become an important and critical component of every organization. In his book, Professor Chatterjee explains the challenges that organizations experience to protect information assets. The book sheds light on different aspects of cybersecurity including a history and impact of the most recent security breaches, as well as the strategic and leadership components that help build strong cybersecurity programs. This book helps bridge the gap between academia and practice and provides important insights that may help professionals in every industry.
This book by Dave Chatterjee is by far the most comprehensive book on cybersecurity management. Cybersecurity is on top of the minds of board members, CEOs, and CIOs as they strive to protect their employees and intellectual property. This book is a must-read for CIOs and CISOs to build a robust cybersecurity program for their organizations.
Professor Chatterjee’s Cybersecurity Readiness: A Holistic and High-Performance Approach fills a critical unmet need for concise, timely, and actionable information for information technology and business leaders. So much of the literature available today is either too high level or too detailed to be usable by most practitioners. The book’s novel Cybersecurity Readiness Scorecard is a tool that any business should be able to use to better manage their risk.
Business executives in today’s world are aware of cybersecurity threats, but many of them are not comfortable with technical discussions. Dr. Chatterjee has made an excellent effort to help business executives understand cybersecurity risks and learn how to mitigate them at the management level. A systematic approach described in this book will help executives launch an effective cybersecurity strategy. I would highly recommend this book for all business and IT executives.
It is time for a holistic (and high-performance) approach to cybersecurity. While cybersecurity remains, nay grows, a pandemic in its own right, it is increasingly more than simply an engineering problem, a network problem, an access problem, or a denial of service problem, awaiting technical solutions. It is all of the above and then some. It is an overarching and alarming business problem.
In the age of pandemic, the importance of cybersecurity readiness cannot be overemphasized. While a number of authors have focused on the technical aspects of cybersecurity, this book uniquely blends technology with management of cybersecurity and does it in a lucid and comprehensive manner. The author's vast experience and regular interactions with the people in the field is showcased in the engaging writing style involving practical examples and case studies.
Dr. Dave Chatterjee is a renowned scholar and technology thought leader. His vast knowledge and insight into the world of cybersecurity is well known and widely sought after by industry, academic, and government leaders around the globe. Now he delivers a book that gives leaders a real-world, coherent understanding of what they face and the multiple dimensions necessary to prepare and respond. I highly recommend reading Dr. Chatterjee’s book to learn and benefit from his years of experience and perceptions into this important subject.
While there are many publications focused on the technical aspects of cybersecurity, very few provide such a well-formulated crosswalk between the technical and business sides of cyber risk. Cybersecurity Readiness: A Holistic and High-Performance Approach provides a clear roadmap for security practitioners to utilize as they build comprehensive information security programs, and it also guides business leaders and board members as they navigate through the journey of understanding and managing cyber risk as an enterprise risk.
With increasing importance of data as a source of competitive advantage, cybersecurity has moved beyond the confines of IT departments to an enterprise-wide endeavor. Professor Chatterjee takes a company culture-level perspective in his new book wherein he has dived deep into his years of experience as a cybersecurity expert and his role in advising firms and CIOs on this issue. This is an extremely relevant and timely piece of work that would advise many firms on the best organizational practices required to safeguard their data from cyberthreats.
Very few issues in the modern world are as pervasive to individuals, corporations, and governments as that of cybersecurity. Dave brings to light aspects that have received too little attention, that is, the human factor, which provides a context that is central to this issue. The “success factors” he puts forward in the book provide any organization with the means to benchmark and monitor changes in programs of all sizes.
This book is a valuable resource for cybersecurity readiness today. Many breaches in the past could have been prevented. This book reviews past leadership decisions and breach examples to provide an effective approach using lessons learned and best practices.
Prof. Chatterjee’s book is a very pragmatic and comprehensive guide to cybersecurity readiness. The governance framework is both powerful and easy to comprehend. Anchored on three high-performance security culture dimensions of commitment, preparedness, and discipline, the framework presents a set of seventeen cybersecurity success factors. Uncovered from analyzing primary and secondary data gathered over several years, these success factors encompass people-, process-, and technology-driven measures.
Dr. Chatterjee’s book fortifies the most essential truth when it comes to effective cybersecurity programs: “technology alone will not mitigate cybersecurity risks.” He identifies key traits that need to be engrained in organizational culture to support the cybersecurity mission as well as seventeen success factors within that cultural framework that any student or practitioner should consider when evaluating their security posture.
Dr. Dave’s book on cybersecurity management is an eye opener for all organizations in today’s world. He has taken tremendous efforts in presenting how to identify, defend, respond, and build resilience in case of cyberattacks in a very simple way. This book is very easy to understand and very important for the senior leadership team of an organization to gain thorough knowledge on the subject of cybersecurity.
Cyber threats, in their many and continuously evolving ways, remain more than ever an existential threat to virtually all companies, both large and small. In his new book Cybersecurity Readiness: A Holistic and High- Performance Approach, Dr. Chatterjee does an excellent job of breaking down these threats and providing a framework for creating a culture of engagement at all levels in an organization to effectively and proactively manage these threats.
Public and hybrid cloud adoption have made the boundaries of corporate IT infrastructure more nebulous, and the need for a well-defined and executed security strategy has never been greater. As companies increasingly pursue the financial benefits of cloudification by virtualizing and containerizing their application architectures, the architectural complexity and the number of potential vulnerabilities significantly increase. Dr. Chatterjee does a superb job of portraying both the business need and the technology approach to define a successful security strategy
Our financial lives, our business lives, and even our personal lives are all online. Cybersecurity is a non-negotiable investment for almost every company in our global community. Just as we have to make sure people walking into a store are physically safe during their experience, we have to ensure their information is safe when they ‘walk into” the cyber version. Professor Chatterjee’s book highlights the traits of a high-performing information security culture: commitment, preparedness, and discipline.
Commitment, preparedness, and discipline in cybersecurity are things Professor Chatterjee has been advocating for many years. The book is a comprehensive summary for executives who wish to understand how cybersecurity has moved from a “techie” topic to a serious boardroom agenda and what organizations should be doing to not only defend, but also respond and build resilience in case of a cyberattack.
Information security is a part of everyone’s responsibility; yet, too many people and organizations still do not completely understand and embrace this. People (and organization culture) continue to be the weakest link in most organization’s security postures. Too often, information security teams focus on technical solutions and audit-driven processes, while not being able to drive the organization-wide awareness, buy-in, and culture change that is needed to holistically secure the enterprise.
Professor Chatterjee’s book is a must-read for any executive who views their organizations’ data as a strategic asset. It is one of the finest works I have read on giving a broad understanding of the dangerous cyber world we live in and why it is here to stay with us. His work provides an excellent framework for building and sustaining a high-performance security
culture, with appropriate systems and processes, to achieve cyber-risk resilience and operate business with confidence rather than fear.
