Summary

Every year, in response to new technologies and new laws in different countries and regions, there are changes to the fundamental knowledge, skills, techniques, and tools required by all IT security professionals. In step with the lightning-quick, increasingly fast pace of change in the technology field, the Information Security Management Handbook, updated yearly, has become the standard on which all IT security programs and certifications are based. It reflects new updates to the Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) that IT security professionals all over the globe need to know.

Captures the crucial elements of the CBK

Exploring the ten domains of the CBK, the book explores access control, telecommunications and network security, information security and risk management, application security, and cryptography. In addition, the expert contributors address security architecture and design, operations security, business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning. The book also covers legal regulations, compliance, investigation, and physical security. In this anthology of treatises dealing with the management and technical facets of information security, the contributors examine varied topics such as anywhere computing, virtualization, podslurping, quantum computing, mashups, blue snarfing, mobile device theft, social computing, voting machine insecurity, and format string vulnerabilities.

Also available on CD-ROM

Safeguarding information continues to be a crucial concern of all IT professionals. As new risks threaten the security of our systems, it is imperative that those charged with protecting that information continually update their armor of knowledge to guard against tomorrow’s hackers and software vulnerabilities. This comprehensive Handbook, also available in fully searchable CD-ROM format keeps IT professionals abreast of new developments on the security horizon and reinforces timeless concepts, providing them with the best information, guidance, and counsel they can obtain.
