Security for Everyone

Low-Cost Approaches for Growing Businesses to Secure What Matters Most

by Laura BellErica Anderson

Do you keep personal documents and phone numbers on your laptop?

Is the source code for your next big idea stored in the cloud?

The sensitive details of your latest sales in documents you share with your team?

No matter the size of your organization, security affects us all.

But what’s needed to secure the people, data, and systems of a large company won’t be right for everyone—it’s time there was a comprehensive resource that helps all businesses keep their people, systems, and data secure.

Securing your business can be daunting, especially when you’re small. That’s why Security for Everyone offers low-cost, scalable solutions to securing your startup or growing business. It will test your personal security assumptions and practices, which will set you up to lead security for an ever-growing team. You’ll learn frameworks for understanding security at different stages of your business, and be guided on a practical journey from Secure Individual to Security Leader.

Security for Everyone focuses on practical, flexible, step-by-step, affordable approaches that can scale to suit your situation and needs, in language non-technical folks can understand.

You’ll learn:

  • Why security matters and how it applies to our business, systems, data, and people.
  • How to protect your own data and key accounts online (such as email and social media)—not just for your own benefit but for the safety of those you care about.
  • How to protect your small business and the key data and tools you rely on to operate—from your website to your email—whether you are protecting yourself or working with a service provider.
  • How to protect your startup and maximize your chance of survival as you take big risks and innovate—from vulnerability management as the technical environment team grows, to communicating security with your customers.
  • How to scale your security for your growing organization—moving your security approach from foundations, to weaving security through your day to day operations and assessing the threats you face as your strategy changes.

The authors of this book believe that security shouldn’t be a privilege for those who can afford it, and they’ve devoted their careers to transforming the security space so everyone can benefit. Security for Everyone will meet you where you are, so you can get started today.
