Book Release: Modern Cybersecurity - Tales from the Near-Distant Future

By

The speed of change and the tools of adversaries make it extremely hard to envision a long-term, executable vision for the future of security. However, without pondering what the near-distant future looks like, we miss the opportunity to influence that future. In the release of our new book, "Modern Cybersecurity: Tales from the Near-Distant Future", we asked seven cybersecurity practitioners to provide us with a story of what they are currently doing as they transform the cybersecurity programs within their companies, and what they envision the near-distant future will look like because of those transformations.

They have done a wonderful job of providing us with roadmaps you can use to move forward, to be able to speak with your development and security teams, to be able to explain to the business how you intend to create a foundation for cybersecurity. This book is a series of short stories that can be read in any order, dependent upon your area of interest. It is available on Amazon, or you can download a digital version for free.

I suggest you start with Sounil Yu's chapter, Security for Modern Cyber Assets. This will give an overview of a new meaning of cyber assets, using the Cyber Defense Matrix to help move through the concepts. From there, it's yours to explore.

  • Security for Modern Cyber Assets - Sounil Yu (JupiterOne)
  • Preparing Your Organization to Adopt a Security Practice - Yolonda Smith (sweetgreen)
  • The Future of Security Cloud Native - Caroline Wong (Cobalt.io)
  • Reinventing the Cybersecurity Workforce - Sushila Nair (NTT DATA Services)
  • Hardening the Value Stream - Bryan Finster (DoD Platform One)
  • Metrics that Matter: The Business Context of Cyber Risk Management - Keyaan Williams (Cyber Leadership Forum)
  • Knowledge without Action is a Wasted Opportunity - Jennifer Czaplewski (Target)

There is a consistency within the storylines presented. If you read closely, the authors present a way to talk about security in terms of business outcomes. Security becomes a part of good business practices, whether through building cross-functional teams, understanding the metrics in order to make better business decisions, or agreeing that quality in a product includes building in cybersecurity from the beginning.

Thank you for participating in the launch of our book. If you enjoy it, please leave a review on Amazon
