New Title From McGraw-Hill Shows Corporations How to Downsize Network Security Risks and Protect Valuable Data

New York, N.Y.December 12, 2003 – Network Security Illustrated offers data security professionals as well as general risk officers a simple, coherent methodology to understand major security concepts, identify risks, and implement cost-efficient solutions that protect valuable data and computer systems.

“Network Security Illustrated is unique in the fact that it is organized around common business problems rather than technology” said Scott Grillo, Vice President and Publisher of the Science and Technology Division of McGraw-Hill. “It’s perfect for managers who make business decisions about security and need to get up to speed on data security concepts. Two very experienced authors cover every essential topic: intrusion detection and disaster recovery, the secure storing and accessing of information, identifying users, security management and outsourcing, and more” added Grillo.

Network Security Illustrated evolved as a result of authors Jason Albanese and Wes Sonnenreich’s many years experience as IT consultants. They are cofounders of SageSecure LLC, a top information security consulting firm. The well-illustrated book comes in a convenient 6 x 9” paperback format and contains 420 pages. Readers will particularly appreciate a bonus 4-color wall-poster that reinforces key security concepts found in the book via intuitive illustrations.
