The age of security as pure technology is long past, and modern practitioners need to understand the social and cognitive aspects of security if they are to be successful. Shostack and Stewart teach readers exactly what they need to know--I just wish I could have had it when I first started out.” --David Mortman, CSO-in-Residence Echelon One, former CSO Seibel Systems Why is information security so dysfunctional? Are you wasting the money you spend on security? This book shows how to spend it more effectively. How can you make more effective security decisions? This book explains why professionals have taken to studying economics, not cryptography--and why you should, too. And why security breach notices are the best thing to ever happen to information security. It’s about time someone asked the biggest, toughest questions about information security. Security experts Adam Shostack and Andrew Stewart don’t just answer those questions--they offer honest, deeply troubling answers. They explain why these critical problems exist and how to solve them. Drawing on powerful lessons from economics and other disciplines, Shostack and Stewart offer a new way forward. In clear and engaging prose, they shed new light on the critical challenges that are faced by the security field. Whether you’re a CIO, IT manager, or security specialist, this book will open your eyes to new ways of thinking about--and overcoming--your most pressing security challenges. The New School enables you to take control, while others struggle with non-stop crises. Better evidence for better decision-makingWhy the security data you have doesn’t support effective decision-making--and what to do about it Beyond security “silos”: getting the job done togetherWhy it’s so hard to improve security in isolation--and how the entire industry can make it happen and evolve Amateurs study cryptography; professionals study economicsWhat IT security leaders can and must learn from other scientific fields A bigger bang for every buckHow to re-allocate your scarce resources where they’ll do the most good
