Give Your Business A Vital Edge In Today’s Connected World
Security against a cyber-attack is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses today – but most of them don’t really understand just how serious the danger is. Too often, companies adopt a scaled-up version of the strategy they use on their PC at home: Just spend money on the right software or hardware, and it will keep your data safe.
Well, it might – but the chances are that won’t be enough. Guaranteeing that your vital files are available when you need them, but kept out of the hands of hackers, takes a bit more than installing a preconfigured software firewall.
In this insightful book, you’ll discover:
- How hackers think
- How to raise awareness for executive management
- Steps and processes attackers take to compromise some of the largest businesses in the world
- What makes you vulnerable to attacks despite having state-of-the-art technology
- Why collaborating with a trusted advisor is vital in keeping your systems secure
Andrew Constantine has been a network security specialist for years. He started out as a support technician and worked his way up to become one of the leading cyber security experts in Australia. Now, as a consultant, he assists businesses to keep their data safe and confidential.
Andrew combines an impressive depth of technical knowledge with an intuitive understanding of how hackers think, how they approach security systems and, of course, how to stop them. It’s this combination that’s made him so highly sought after by organisations that value their data.
I am a respected IT professional with over 20 years in the technology industry.

I have known Andrew for years. Anyone who knows
Andrew can tell you that he is professional, knowledgeable,
approachable and extremely passionate about technology
He is never one to use marketing jargon or buzzwords;
rather he cuts to the chase and helps his clients understand
and address issues that matter. Many Thanks.
We have known Andrew and his team for a little over a year now
and we are impressed by his overall attitude to work and
knowledge of security concepts and systems.
Andrew is a real asset to the security space, and, in our
short time working together, has proved himself over and
over again. He has a real passion for raising awareness and
educating the people around him.
We particularly love his methodology and his simple approach
to identifying and securing business technology systems.
We were so impressed with Andrew’s strategy that we have
subsequently chosen to work with him and his team to enable
cyber security and analytics services within our clients. We
highly recommend Andrew to any senior technology leader
in the area of cyber security.
Based on his experience, Andrew believes that many companies aren’t protecting themselves against cyber-attack as well as they should be, because they’ve been misled by myths about what works.
These statements all sound sensible enough, and if you work in IT for any length of time, you’re sure to hear variations on them. Unfortunately, Andrew has seen them all go dangerously wrong. He’s learned the facts about cyber security – and now he’s laid them out in his ground-breaking new book, The CIO Solution.
Myths like these:
- “Our IT team are capable of protecting us from outside cyber threats”
- “Having state-of-the-art technology is all we need”
- “We work in the cloud: the cloud is safe”
- “We know enough about potential threats to out-think the attacker”
- “It can’t happen to us; we have all the resources we need”
