"This is a must–read for the entire CXO community if businesses are to survive in cyberspace. Attack methodologies and the cyber threat poised against our business systems are advancing rapidly. Business leaders are soon to face downstream liability issues for the damage their unprotected and exploited systems cause not only to themselves but to all of those with whom they do business in cyberspace. American businesses are now the target of choice by our nation′s enemies. We may secure the airways, ports, and borders, but only the boardrooms of America can ensure the survival of our economy."
John R. Thomas, Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired Former Commander of the DoD, Global Operations and Security Center
