This book provides a practical and strategic perspective on IT and cyber security for corporations and other businesses. Leading experts from industry, politics and research discuss the status quo and future prospects of corporate cyber security. They answer questions such as: How much will IT security cost? Who will provide IT security? Can security even be fun?
The book claims that digitization will increasingly pervade all areas of the economy, as well as our daily professional and personal lives. It will produce speed, agility and cost efficiency, but also increasing vulnerability in the context of public, corporate and private life. Consequently, cyber security is destined to become the great facilitator of digitization, providing maximum protection for data, networks, data centres and terminal devices. Autorentext

Authors from the fields of politics, business, research and development examine the issue of security in this book. What will it cost and who will provide it? Can security perhaps even be fun?
Digitization is permanently changing how we live and work. It is associated with speed and cost efficiency improvements, but it also increases the vulnerability to attack of both individuals and enterprises. To ensure that digitization can continue to drive efficiency, the maximum possible protection of data, networks and data centres, as well as devices and sensors in the Internet of Things, is essential. Humans and human behaviour are key to this, which is why future security concepts will have to be easy to use for everyone - from pensioners, housewives and students to small businesses and major corporations.
