The September 11, 2001 attacks illustrated the immense vulnerability to terrorist threats. Since there have been considerable efforts to develop plans and methods to protect critical infrastructures and key assets. The government at all levels, private sector organizations, as well as concerned citizens have begun to establish partnerships and to develop action plans. But there are many questions yet to be answered about what organizations should actually do to protect their assets and their people while participating in national efforts to improve security. This book provides practical steps that IT managers in all organizations and sectors can take to move security from the planning process into practice.

  • 77 action steps that organizations can take to implement IT-related homeland security initiatives
  • An action road map that shows which objectives need to be addressed at the executive level, in the IT department, and in computer security
  • Easy to understand explanations as to how national strategies for homeland security impact IT operations, policies, and procedures
