Book Description


Using the SARS-CoV-2/CoVID-19 pandemic as a giant case study, and structured by the domains of information security, this book looks at what the crisis teaches us about security. It points out specific security fundamentals where social, medical, or business responses to the crisis failed, or needed to make specific use of those concepts. For the most part, these lessons are simply reminders of factors that get neglected during times of non-crisis, and particularly point out the importance of advance planning and resilience in systems and business.

Those studying cybersecurity and its preventive measures and applications, as well as those involved in risk management studies and assessments, will all benefit greatly from the book.
