The Information Security Management Handbook continues its tradition of consistently communicating the fundamental concepts of security needed to be a true CISSP. In response to new developments, Volume 4 supplements the previous volumes with new information covering topics such as wireless, HIPAA, the latest hacker attacks and defenses, intrusion detection, and provides expanded coverage on security management issues and applications security. Even those that don't plan on sitting for the CISSP exam will find that this handbook is a great information security reference.
The changes in the technology of information security and the increasing threats to security make a complete and up-to-date understanding of this material essential. Volume 4 supplements the information in the earlier volumes of this handbook, updating it and keeping it current. Organized by the ten domains of the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) on which the CISSP exam is based, this volume gives you the information you need to understand what makes information secure and how to secure it.
Because the knowledge required to master information security - the CBK - is growing so quickly, there is little duplication of material among the four volumes. As a study guide or resource that you can use on the job, the Information Security Management Handbook, Fourth Edition, Volume 4 is the book you will refer to over and over again.
