This book is written for network managers and administrators. Readers should also be familiar with computing and network processes and terminology. Divided into 16 chapters, this book has a good flow about it. The focus is on helping the reader to understand just what security is, what to do when a system is compromised, and how to protect these systems in the future.

    One of the key points stressed in this book is that we should not try to protect more than needs protecting; "Security should be commensurate with the value of what you are protecting. Part of that value is actual value; another part is the work it will take you to rebuild; another, more subtle part is the work it will take you to trust your network again." Learning the network security process is more valuable than learning a technical solution only. As things change in this industry, if you know how the process works, you can always adapt a new technical solution.
