"There are two basic reasons why a book comes out in a second edition: either the author needs the cash or the book needs to be updated. When the first edition of Web Security, Privacy & Commerce came out in 1997, it was titled Web Security & Commerce. Not only has the title changed, but Web security, privacy, and commerce have changed radically in the last five years.

    The nature of the change and the pace at which it occurs is a large part of the difficulty within information security. Imagine a heart surgeon going on an extended vacation in 1997 and coming back in 2002. Although his surgical technique may be a bit rusty, there is no reason to think that he could not start practicing medicine again right away. However, if you were to take a contemporary information security professional from 1997 and place him in the 2002 workplace, he would be horribly outdated. Technologies that did not exist in 1997, or even 2000, are now ubiquitous, and technologies that were considered cutting edge only a few years ago are now archaic."
