Praise for The Executive Guide to Information Security

"In today's world, no business can operate without securing its computers. This book conveys that message in clear, concise terms and acts as a tremendous primer to CEOs."

from the Foreword by Richard A. Clarke

"Every CEO is responsible for protecting the assets of their corporation–the people, intellectual property, corporate and customer information, infrastructure, network, and computing resources. This is becoming both more important and more difficult with the rise in the number and sophistication of cyber threats. This book helps the CEO understand the issues and ask the right questions to implement a more effective strategy for their business."

Steve Bennett, president and CEO, Intuit

"Mark Egan and Tim Mather help nontechnical executives gain a comprehensive perspective over the security challenges that all companies face today. This book is well structured and practical. Yet, it also stresses that a strategic approach to cyber security is essential, and that "tone at the top" will determine the effectiveness of any corporate cyber security policy."

Eric Benhamou, chairman of the board of directors, 3Com Corporation, palmOne, and PalmSource, Inc

"This book is not about cyber security; it's about managing one's company and the role that cyber security plays in that scenario. It's chilling to think of how vulnerable the assets of a business are on a computer network; this book is a fire alarm in the night for business executives to realize computer security is not a tech issue–it's a business issue worthy of the same attention and priority that business executives might place on any other mission-critical element of their company."

George Reyes, CFO, Google

"This is a must read for any executive of any size company. The Internet makes all businesses equal in that they are subject to the same types of threats regardless of their product. In this book, the CIO and security director of one of the top security companies makes the business case for security and tells you what to do to successfully mitigate threats."

Howard A. Schmidt, former cyber security advisor to the White House, CSO Microsoft, and VP CISO eBay

"This book gives an excellent overview of the issues around securing information at a time in our history when information is extremely vulnerable to outside attack, retrieval, or manipulation. Steps taken now can make a huge difference to a company's ability to survive and thrive in a heterogeneous attack culture."

Bob Concannon, Global Practice Leader, Boyden Global Executive Search

"Few if any books expose the business executive to the serious and critical nature of existing and evolving security issues using nontechnical terms. Executives can no longer afford to delegate the responsibility and accountability for security without understanding the issues and without assuming the ultimate responsibility for security in the firm. This book should become required reading for every business executive, regardless of product or company size."

John Moreno, chair, MS in Information Technology, Golden Gate University

"This book details the what, why, and how to solve issues of information security in business today. It gives examples many people will recognize from the press, discusses the basics of information security in a very understandable way, and reviews approaches for addressing these risks and threats."

David Schwartz, managing director, Derivative Products Risk Advisors, Inc.

"This book fills a void by addressing the key criteria executives need to consider when implementing an effective information security plan within their organization."

Shobana Gubbi, former project manager of IOS Technologies, Cisco

A Business-Focused Information Security Action Plan for Every Executive

Today, every executive must understand information security from a business perspective. Now, this concise book tells business leaders exactly what they need to know to make intelligent decisions about security–without ever getting lost in the technical complexities.

The Executive Guide to Information Security offers realistic, step-by-step recommendations for evaluating and improving information security in any enterprise. From start to finish, the focus is on action: what works and how to get it done. Here are just a few of the things you will be learning:

  • Understanding your security challenges and obligations

  • Trends in security attacks

  • Systematically identifying your risks and vulnerabilities

  • Implementing best-practice processes for access, acceptable use, training, strategy, and emergency response

Disponible. Normalmente se envía en 4 días.

“In this second edition of Extreme Programming Explained, Kent Beck organizes and presents five years’ worth of experiences, growth, and change revolving around XP. If you are seriously interested in understanding how you and your team can start down the path of improvement with XP, you must read this book.”
Francesco Cirillo, Chief Executive Officer, XPLabs S.R.L.
“The first edition of this book told us what XP was—it changed the way many of us think about software development. This second edition takes it farther and gives us a lot more of the ‘why’ of XP, the motivations and the principles behind the practices. This is great stuff. Armed with the ‘what’ and the ‘why,’ we can now all set out to confidently work on the ‘how’: how to run our projects better, and how to get agile techniques adopted in our organizations.”
Dave Thomas, The Pragmatic Programmers LLC
“This book is dynamite! It was revolutionary when it first appeared a few years ago, and this new edition is equally profound. For those who insist on cookbook checklists, there’s an excellent chapter on ‘primary practices,’ but I urge you to begin by truly contemplating the meaning of the opening sentence in the first chapter of Kent Beck’s book: ‘XP is about social change.’ You should do whatever it takes to ensure that every IT professional and every IT manager—all the way up to the CIO—has a copy of Extreme Programming Explained on his or her desk.”
Ed Yourdon, author and consultant
“XP is a powerful set of concepts for simplifying the process of software design, development, and testing. It is about minimalism and incrementalism, which are especially useful principles when tackling complex problems that require a balance of creativity and discipline.”
Michael A. Cusumano, Professor, MIT Sloan School of Management, and author of The Business of Software
Extreme Programming Explained is the work of a talented and passionate craftsman. Kent Beck has brought together a compelling collection of ideas about programming and management that deserves your full attention. My only beef is that our profession has gotten to a point where such common-sense ideas are labeled ‘extreme.’...”
Lou Mazzucchelli, Fellow, Cutter Business Technology Council
“If your organization is ready for a change in the way it develops software, there’s the slow incremental approach, fixing things one by one, or the fast track, jumping feet first into Extreme Programming. Do not be frightened by the name, it is not that extreme at all. It is mostly good old recipes and common sense, nicely integrated together, getting rid of all the fat that has accumulated over the years.”
Philippe Kruchten, UBC, Vancouver, British Columbia
“Sometimes revolutionaries get left behind as the movement they started takes on a life of its own. In this book, Kent Beck shows that he remains ahead of the curve, leading XP to its next level. Incorporating five years of feedback, this book takes a fresh look at what it takes to develop better software in less time and for less money. There are no silver bullets here, just a set of practical principles that, when used wisely, can lead to dramatic improvements in software development productivity.”
Mary Poppendieck, author of Lean Software Development: An Agile Toolkit
“Kent Beck has revised his classic book based on five more years of applying and teaching XP. He shows how the path to XP is both easy and hard: It can be started with fewer practices, and yet it challenges teams to go farther than ever.”
William Wake, independent consultant
“With new insights, wisdom from experience, and clearer explanations of the art of Extreme Programming, this edition of Beck’s classic will help many realize the dream of outstanding software development.”
Joshua Kerievsky, author of Refactoring to Patterns and Founder, Industrial Logic, Inc.
“XP has changed the way our industry thinks about software development. Its brilliant simplicity, focused execution, and insistence on fact-based planning over speculation have set a new standard for software delivery.”
David Trowbridge, Architect, Microsoft Corporation

Accountability. Transparency. Responsibility. These are not words that are often applied to software development.

In this completely revised introduction to Extreme Programming (XP), Kent Beck describes how to improve your software development by integrating these highly desirable concepts into your daily development process.

The first edition of Extreme Programming Explained is a classic. It won awards for its then-radical ideas for improving small-team development, such as having developers write automated tests for their own code and having the whole team plan weekly. Much has changed in five years. This completely rewritten second edition expands the scope of XP to teams of any size by suggesting a program of continuous improvement based on:

  • Five core values consistent with excellence in software development
  • Eleven principles for putting those values into action
  • Thirteen primary and eleven corollary practices to help you push development past its current business and technical limitations

Whether you have a small team that is already closely aligned with your customers or a large team in a gigantic or multinational organization, you will find in these pages a wealth of ideas to challenge, inspire, and encourage you and your team members to substantially improve your software development.

You will discover how to:

  • Involve the whole team—XP style
  • Increase technical collaboration through pair programming and continuous integration
  • Reduce defects through developer testing
  • Align business and technical decisions through weekly and quarterly planning
  • Improve teamwork by setting up an informative, shared workspace

You will also find many other concrete ideas for improvement, all based on a philosophy that emphasizes simultaneously increasing the humanity and effectiveness of software development.

Every team can improve. Every team can begin improving today. Improvement is possible—beyond what we can currently imagine. Extreme Programming Explained, Second Edition, offers ideas to fuel your improvement for years to come.

Disponible. Normalmente se envía en 4 días.

“Open source requires a fundamentally different operating model in order for IT organizations to succeed. Succeeding with Open Source is the first how-to book about selecting open source software based on a product’s characteristics such as quality, support, and longevity. Open source software is here to stay. Golden provides an essential tool for evaluating its usefulness/readiness for the corporation.”
Martin Fink, Vice-President—Linux, Hewlett-Packard, and author of The Business and Economics of Linux and Open Source
“Open source software is transforming the way companies acquire and manage software at every level, from operating systems to applications. Today, IT managers who don’t evaluate open source alternatives to proprietary software are doing their companies a profound disservice. If you are involved in any aspect of software acquisition and you aren’t intimately familiar with how open source systems are created, documented, and supported, you need this book. It provides you with a new framework for assessing the maturity of open source solutions, walks you through every step of the evaluation process, and provides vital insights into the risks and benefits of making the open source decision.”
David A. Taylor, Ph.D., author of Object Technology: A Manager’s Guide and Supply Chains: A Manager’s Guide
“Novell, its customers, and its partners have been waiting for something like this: a quantitative and qualitative way to assess the strength of open source projects we hope to support or build into our products. Golden provides a clear, concise methodology for determining whether an open source project is enterprise-ready and what it would take to make it so.”
Chris Stone, Vice Chairman, Novell
“Open source software addresses many of the needs of IT organizations. While more and more organizations are using open source software, few understand how to evaluate it in the absence of a parent organization. Golden provides an effective mechanism to quickly evaluate open source software based on standard software measures—such as quality, support, and documentation—and to share those evaluations with other organizations. Using Golden’s model, IT organizations can efficiently compare proprietary solutions to open source software solutions.”
Stormy Peters, Open Source Program Office, Hewlett-Packard Company
“This book contains some of the most valuable, practical advice I have seen on how to transform the use of open source software from an accidental process into a powerful strategy for gaining an edge on the competition. By providing measurable engineering and process criteria for selecting open source products and processes, it brings open source software and methods squarely within the fold of traditional software engineering and business practices. I believe this book will be looked back on as an important transition point for recognizing how open source software can be used to promote business innovation and control costs.”
Terry Bollinger, IT Analyst, The MITRE Corporation, author of “Use of Free and Open Source Software in the U.S. Department of Defense,” and former editor of IEEE Software magazine
“An outstanding look at how open source software can provide both a competitive edge and significant cost savings for any company. Required reading for any technical professional or manager.”
Kevin Bedell, Editor in Chief, LinuxWorld Magazine
“This book describes a thorough and pragmatic process to determine if/when an organization should employ open source software in mission-critical systems. Golden’s Open Source Maturity Model is a vital tool for planning open source successes.”
Craig Murphy, Chief Technology Officer, Sabre

Much like Odysseus—who had to negotiate perils between Scylla and Charybdis—IT managers face daunting challenges. On one side, there is relentless pressure to cut costs. On the other lies an unending demand for innovative solutions. However, unlike Odysseus, IT managers must not simply avoid either fate: Instead, they must fulfill both quests.

To meet these seemingly disparate goals, IT organizations are increasingly investigating the use of open source software for its cost-effectiveness and flexibility. However, myths about open source software persist—for example, that it runs only on Linux or that it is not stable enough for demanding production environments. Dispelling those myths, leading companies such as Amazon.com and Google rely on open source software, and many more companies will make the switch in the years ahead.

Succeeding with Open Source is the first book written specifically for IT managers who need to evaluate, select, and use open source software. The author begins with the fundamentals of open source solutions and how they differ greatly from commercial software. He then introduces the Open Source Maturity Model (OSMM), an invaluable resource for assessing open source products for their production readiness.

Highlights include:

  • Assessing open source business models
  • Managing risk, including licensing issues
  • Evaluating and selecting open source software
  • Locating and assessing technical support, training, and documentation resources

With the book’s fast-track summary format, readers can quickly and easily navigate the text and its real-world examples. Open source OSMM evaluation templates, as well as additional case studies, are available at www.navicasoft.com.

Whether you are an IT manager or a consultant responsible for advising clients, this book will help you steer a clear course through the open source sea.
