Title:     Computer Security:  Gaining the CEO's Support
Authors:   Horton, Thomas R
Journal:   Vital Speeches of the Day  Vol: 56  Iss: 10  Date: Mar 1990
           pp: 307-310
           Jrnl Code: VSP  ISSN: 0042-742X  Jrnl Group: Commentary
Abstract:  Chief executive officers have been lamentably disinterested in
           computer security, occasionally to their misfortune.  Communication
           is the key to any new program, and computer security personnel must
           make it easy for busy CEOs to comprehend their security needs and
           options.  Confusion among different departments makes implementing
           security a challenge.

Abstract:  Internet, the major computer network for researchers in the US and
           overseas, was disrupted for two days last week due to the presence
           of a computer virus.  The virus and attempts by computer experts at
           the University of California at Berkeley and the Massachusetts
           Institute of Technology to cure it are examined.

Abstract:  There are two separate problems to be dealt with in safeguarding
           data security:  keeping outsiders off the system and preventing
           disgruntled  or criminally inclined employees from attacking it.
           Restricting access is in some ways the hardest to accomplish.
