Wolters Kluwer introduces new resource on cybersecurity best practices

The resource delivers practical guidance to all experience levels on navigating cybersecurity.

Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced the launch of Cybersecurity in the Digital Age: Tools, Techniques, & Best Practices,” now available online and in print through its acclaimed legal research platform, Cheetah™. Authored by an international team of cybersecurity experts led by Gregory A. Garrett, Head of U.S. and International Cybersecurity for BDO, the resource provides insight and in-depth knowledge to understand and apply the strategic concepts of cybersecurity.

“Cybersecurity in the Digital Age: Tools, Techniques, & Best Practices” provides comprehensive coverage of cybersecurity issues including historical context, analysis of recent events and industry-specific concerns. Professionals across several industries and levels of experience will have access to   comprehensive coverage of cybersecurity issues, as well as tools and best practices to manage cyber vulnerability, risk, monitoring, defense and response strategies, including process diagrams, charts, time-saving tables, relevant figures, and lists of key actions and best practices.

The resource is Wolters Kluwer’s latest addition to its market-leading content on cybersecurity to provide professionals with the tools to effectively manage the complexities of this quickly evolving legal and regulatory issue. The company provides industry-specific coverage for industries including financial services, healthcare services, private equity, the public sector and contractors.

“As we expand our extensive cybersecurity offerings, we continuously aim to provide our customers timely, practical content,” said Chris Carr, Corporate Compliance Portfolio Director for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “Covering one of the most relevant topics to the industry today, ‘Cybersecurity in the Digital Age’ is the latest example of our commitment to keeping our customers informed and empowered with highly pertinent knowledge.”

“The reputational and financial consequences of data breaches and data misuse scandals have reached a boiling point,” said Garrett. “Data security is no longer an IT prerogative but an enterprise-wide imperative—one that can be an engine for strategic growth. The cybersecurity conversation needs to shift from achieving just a compliance-driven ‘minimum baseline’ to doing ‘everything we can’ to protect the business and support innovation.”

The key topics covered in the resource include:

  • Cybersecurity for the C-suite and Board of Directors;
  • Cybersecurity risk management framework comparisons;
  • Cybersecurity identity and access management;
  • Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing;
  • Monitoring, detection and response (MDR); and
  • ISO 27001 certification – lessons learned and best practices.

“Cybersecurity in the Digital Age: Tools, Techniques, & Best Practices,” can be accessed through the Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Suite on Cheetah™ and Cheetah™ Government Contracts Suite.

In addition to this title, Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. provides professionals with a wide range of current, accurate and authoritative resources with analysis and insight into the government contracting process. Cheetah™ Government Contracts provides immediate access to topic segments that include the Government Contracts Library, exclusive Matrix Tools, the highly respected Nash & Cibinic collection and the equally renowned Garrett Series.
