In today's world, technology is at the core of every business, making cyber security an indispensable aspect of an organisation's survival. As a result, non-functional requirements do not cover the ground, and a holistic approach toward securing an enterprise is imperative.

Cyber Security and Business Analysis equips the business analyst with the required cyber security knowledge to recognise risks at all levels and deliver a complete analysis.

Written in an accessible style, every chapter builds on the previous one in setting the context, from realising the need of the hour to developing the security mindset and providing the necessary techniques and tools to include cyber security holistically as part of their business analysis and deliverables.

Loaded with real-life experiences, security incidents and analogies, the content extends from a level of understanding to a deeper level of realisation and with practical examples of how that can be done. If you want to protect your organisation from cyber threats and deliver tangible results, this book is an indispensable guide that will equip you with the necessary tools and techniques to succeed.
