This a partial draft of a manual on data security for a non-computer nerd small to mid-sized business owner. it explains security concepts, contains a glossary, an annotated bibliography, and identifies ways to manage the risk represented by information technology. I worked on this a couple of years ago and gave up at least temporarily because the technology and threats were changing faster than I could write. I have put up the partial draft because it might be useful to some people and I occasionally refer folks to sections I wrote when they ask related questions. If the draft does appear to be useful and there is sufficient interest, I may continue working on it.

The information presented here is extensive— do not try to absorb it all at once and do not expect to change
your business overnight. Take it in steps. I recommend reading through once at a high level to absorb
the contents and skim the detail. Then start through again. I have worked to provide extensive references,
links, and a glossary. Focus on the parts that are most important to your business, explore the references
and talk to your IT people. If you find that your IT staff or consultants will not work with you, get new
ones. Try to learn and improve something each week. The end goal is to turn the Internet from an unknown
source of risk to something which can be understood and capitalized on.
