Andrew and I want to say thank you to Dave Marsh. His review of our book includes this:

I’d have to say that the first few pages of this book had more of an impact on me that the sum of all the pages of any other security-related book I had ever read

It’s really wonderful to hear that our book is still being discovered and having this sort of impact more than two years after we wrote it.

One comment on "Thanks!"

  • Like any “great science” information security is really a timeless idea. The technologies may change over time but the concepts of confidentiality, integrity, and availability remain the same. The way we secured our paper a hundred years ago is really the same as we secure electronic information today. Profile the data, determine risks, put in place the proper controls to mitigate that risk (administrative, physical, and logical controls). The techies are starting to realize that, as Alice said, they have to run as fast as they can just to stay where they are. I’m betting you book will be relevant for many years to come.
