It provides practical steps for producing secure information systems, targeted at the highest levels in the organization. It focuses on the three key areas of concern that the author has come across in his consultancy work with global organizations: What do I need to know about the impact of IT security on business strategy? How do I address these issues at my organization? Where do I go to find more information?The highlights include coverage of: the five biggest mistakes organizations make - including reasons and drivers; checklists for compliance and evaluation; best practice guides to assessment and incident response; and a roadmap for building effective information security in your organization. One of this book's key features is the myriad of case studies and real-world examples, taken directly from some of the author's clients senior technical managers at some of the world's most recognizable companies. Each section of the book will have success stories, sidebars, and failure examples from C-level executives on their company's path towards secure IT systems. "Information Security Management: A Survival Guide" will take you from I don't know anything about IT security to I am designing, building, and deploying robust and effective security systems in terms that CIOs and CISOs can take action on and can justify to their organizations.
