usage over the last decade has exploded.
Yet every day, we are seeing more and more compromises of information which is attached to the Internet. The Abilene Net explores why it is strategically impossible to fully and permanently protect information which is accessible through the Internet and proposes an alternative approach to electronic commerce. The Abilene Net contrasts and compares the
current cyber war with traditional warfare and discusses a variety of issues
associated with transmitting sensitive information over an open network which
is accessible to virtually everyone. The
book defines a series of security axioms and strategies to be considered when
implementing a layered security model, recommending fundamental changes in our strategies associated with the exchange of sensitive information. The Abilene Net is a must read for CEOs,
CFOs, CIOs, CTOs, and other
corporate officers who will be held increasingly responsible for protecting
their company’s information resources and the information of their customers.
