Security Threat Mitigation and Response
Cisco Press has published a new security book - Security Threat Mitigation and Response - and a review of it can be found at http://www.unixreview.com/documents/s=10104/ur0611h/ur0611h.htm. Cisco Security MARS (Monitoring, Analysis, and Response System) is a product intended to work with your network and identify (as well as prevent) problems early on. It is also intended to boost data privacy to the point where compliance becomes a certainty. Given the customization that is possible and the importance of getting it right, a book on the topic that is detailed and easy to read is almost a necessity.
