The wording “Under Attack” implies a dangerous situation – one that signifies we are currently under assault. In this book, the Celebrity Experts® showcased are in the vanguard of protecting data and sensitive information under threat – the threat of digital information being made available to unscrupulous sources, and at times just pure vandalism. There are very few businesses, organizations or even individuals left in this country that don’t use electronics today. The Electronic Revolution has been all-encompassing.
Remaining vestiges of ‘old world’ practices – like manually writing or recording transactions or events, or the time-honored tradition of ‘hiding money under the mattress’ – have all but disappeared. So, along with the use of bows and arrows and pony dispatch riders, these are becoming historical markers strewn along the path of progress. The Celebrity Experts® in this book are people who are in business to protect digital information. In addition to unscrupulous sources that wish to profit from competitive information, businesses also have to deal with governmental regulations that ensure both consumers privacy as well as organizational transparency as well.
Penalties for not adopting legislated governmental requirements in medical, financial and various other industries are severe. The information herein highlights the usefulness and ability of these experts – and their expertise is varied. We should not be surprised that electronic systems are “Under Attack,” and also, that these Celebrity Experts® are not merely qualified, but more importantly, experienced in helping stave off the inevitable attacks that businesses, governments and organizations face daily. Using such expertise is a form of insurance, without which the cost of remediation can be devastating.
