The effective management of risks online is likely to be the greatest business enabler / destroyer of the next decade. Clearly, organizations that do not move to full e-commerce functionality are unlikely to flourish; whereas those that ignore cyber crime and the "dark side" of the Internet are likely to get badly burnt. This important new book highlights the key issues in online risk management, taking the premise that information security is no longer an issue confined to the IT department but is critical to all operational functions: finance, HR, marketing, production etc. Nor are its solutions purely technical. With two thirds of security breaches said to be caused by human error, management controls and processes are equally important. Published in association with the Institute of Directors in England, "The Secure Online Business" draws on the experience of leading firms and their advisers and uses up-to-date case studies to illustrate "best practice" in online risk management.
