WHY CISOs FAIL 2nd EDITION IS HERE!
Barak adds 7 new half-chapters, expanding the original work and adding deeper discussions of essential topics such as vulnerability and incident management, while sprinkling new, real-life stories from his long and accomplished career as thought leader and visionary in the information security field. He ends the book with two new suggestions on how to reconsider security management, align it better with business needs, and hopefully eliminate some of the fail.
An out-of-the-mainstream, counterculture thinker in the world of security, Barak’s rich background and unusual approach to the field come forth in this book in vivid color and detail, allowing the reader to gain insights when faced with similar issues themselves or within their organizations.
Barak combines a highly innovative and intuitive approach to get excellent results. He manages to fit in to any environment, gets along with, inspires and motivates personnel.

Barak is a talented technology evangelist, a polished speaker, and accomplished subject matter specialist.
