Advances in Enterprise Information Technology Security

Information about customers, competitors, products and processes is a key
issue for an enterprise's success. Providing and maintaining consistent
security of this information on servers and across networks must be one of
the enterprise's business activities. The book will provide a broad working
knowledge of all the major security issues affecting today's enterprise IT
activities, giving readers the tools to address opportunities in the field.
This is mainly because the security factors provide the enterprise a high
potential in order to provide trusted services to their customers. This
book will show readers how to apply a number of security techniques to the
enterprise environment with its complex and various applications. It covers
the entire field of enterprise security, including: database security and
integrity, security policies, computer and client/server systems,
communication networks and multimedia, applications and operating system
software, security of collaborative applications, enterprise security
identity management, and enterprise security risk management. It will be an
all-in-one reference for IT managers, researchers, application integrators,
database and network administrators, graduate and postgraduate students,
and software architects.

The focus is on IT security for the enterprise. It aims to be used as a
desk reference because it will be a best collection of papers written by
many authors instead of a book that focuses on a specific approach or
methodology. The main motivation on this is that we are convinced that
there are no simple and complete answers to the issues of security. We
actually cannot think that the only security action to perform in order to
secure the enterprise information systems is to install a firewall, improve
their authentication method, or write a security policy. This should not be
considered as a complete solution, though it will help in improving its
The book chapters comprising this desk reference will be organized in
logical groupings that are akin to appropriate levels in enterprise IT
security. Each section of the actual book will be devoted to carefully
chosen papers, some of which will reflect individual authors' experiences.
The strength of this approach is that it gives a benefit from a rich
diversity of viewpoints and deep subject matter knowledge.

IT Managers, application integrators, database and network administrators,
graduate and postgraduate students, software architects, researchers.
