ANCHOR LEAD: The days of setting the alarm and locking the door to keep your business safe are far behind us. These days having the right cyber security plan is essential to keeping your business secure. Brian Osuch has more. (:60)
SCRIPT: Newsbreak, I'm Brian Osuch. Fighting off cyber attackers can feel like a war, that's why McAfee's Michael Fey says securing your company's information is more important now than ever before.
CUT: (Fey) Information is the life blood of our companies. The amount of damages around that loss now has exceeded to one-trillion dollars. And it's expected to spike to five-trillion over the next five years.
SCRIPT: Fey and Brian Kenyon, also of McAfee, are two of the writers behind the book, Security Battleground: An Executive Field Manual. Brian, why did you write this book?
CUT: (Kenyon) Security Battleground was designed to help executives understand their role in security. How they can be part of the solution and really bridge the gap between executives and IT security.
SCRIPT: Michael, you talk about "Riches, Ruins and Regulations." Which types of questions should an executive ask to help build a security plan?
CUT: (Fey) What is it you could steal? What information could you leverage? And then, how could you ruin the company? What systems could be shut down? What brand damage could be done? And then think about the regulations you have to operate under.
