Protective Security: Creating Military-Grade Defenses for Your Digital Business
This book shows you how military counter-intelligence principles and objectives are applied. It provides you with valuable advice and guidance to help your business understand threat vectors and the measures needed to reduce the risks and impacts to your organization.
