Product description

Create appropriate, security-focused business propositions that consider the balance between cost, risk, and usability, while starting your journey to become an information security manager. Covering a wealth of information that explains exactly how the industry works today, this book focuses on how you can set up an effective information security practice, hire the right people, and strike the best balance between security controls, costs, and risks.

Practical Information Security Management provides a wealth of practical advice for anyone responsible for information security management in the workplace, focusing on the ‘how’ rather than the ‘what’. Together we’ll cut through the policies, regulations, and standards to expose the real inner workings of what makes a security management program effective, covering the full gamut of subject matter pertaining to security management: organizational structures, security architectures, technical controls, governance frameworks, and operational security.

This book was not written to help you pass your CISSP, CISM, or CISMP or become a PCI-DSS auditor. It won’t help you build an ISO 27001 or COBIT-compliant security management system, and it won’t help you become an ethical hacker or digital forensics investigator – there are many excellent books on the market that cover these subjects in detail. Instead, this is a practical book that offers years of real-world experience in helping you focus on the getting the job done.

 

What You Will Learn

  • Learn the practical aspects of being an effective information security manager

  • Strike the right balance between cost and risk

  • Take security policies and standards and make them work in reality

  • Leverage complex security functions, such as Digital Forensics, Incident Response and Security Architecture

but what I've found is that it puts the mechanics of getting wha

Just got the book last week. As the book says, it won't help you pass an exam, but what I've found is that it puts the mechanics of getting what needs to be done in to an easy to understand approach - something that is missing from formal qualifications.

If you need to protect yourself quickly by a tried and tested approach from the bad guys; rather than learn the bad guys lexicon, think about how the bad guys attack you, then develop a unique security posture that may not be adequately mature and based on workable methods, this book is for you.

Poor content

The book has 14 chapters of about 10 pages each... For each of the chapters the info you will find is stuff you can google within 5 minutes max. And it's not even making complex topics clearer or adding any new edge/perspective to the items discussed...
Arguably one of the most useless books written in this field.

Very useful advice

The author has taken a very challenging subject - security management - and has made it accessible. I found his advice practical and very useful in my job. I'd recommend this to anyone who is seeking practical advice.
