10 IT Security Essentials Explained In New Quest® Executive Brief

Almost daily, headlines make clear that any organization relying on information technology needs ever more complicated IT security not just to thrive but to survive.

Quest’s new Executive Brief, 10 Strategic Essentials for Boosting Your Business’ IT Security, takes on the challenge of explaining the varied nature of security threats faced by today’s organizations, large and small, and goes on to describe what key strategic steps every organization should take to contain those threats.

Filled with charts, graphs, and statistics, and offered free of charge, Quest’s Executive Brief takes an easy-to-follow, step-by-step approach to IT security strategy that enables non-IT decision-makers to understand both why IT security matters and what needs to be done to accomplish it.

Each of the 10 security essentials in this Quest Executive Brief is described in the kind of concise detail that non-IT executives need to make informed decisions about the best way to keep their organization’s IT security both affordable and effective:

1 Never forget: Your security is only as good as its weakest link, so build your defenses in depth

2 Use guiding principles in designing and deploying your organization’s security controls

3 Build security into what you virtualize

4 Improve your application security

5 To better address advanced persistent threats, deploy computer security incident response capabilities

6 Encrypt your data when it’s in transit and when it’s at rest

7 Authenticate!

8 Get proactive about security

9 Educate your employees about security

10 Don’t try to do it all by yourself

10 Strategic Essentials for Boosting Your Business’ IT Security is available as a free downloadable PDF from Quest at its website, http://www.questsys.com/BoostITSecurity. Print copies are also available upon request.
