Introduction to Information Security: A Strategic-Based Approach

Buy

Most introductory texts provide a technology-based survey of methods and techniques that leaves the reader without a clear understanding of the interrelationships between methods and techniques. By providing a strategy-based introduction, the reader is given a clear understanding of how to provide overlapping defenses for critical information. This understanding provides a basis for engineering and risk-management decisions in the defense of information.

Information security is a rapidly growing field, with a projected need for thousands of professionals within the next decade in the government sector alone. It is also a field that has changed in the last decade from a largely theory-based discipline to an experience-based discipline. This shift in the field has left several of the classic texts with a strongly dated feel.

  • Provides a broad introduction to the methods and techniques in the field of information security
  • Offers a strategy-based view of these tools and techniques, facilitating selection of overlapping methods for in-depth defense of information
  • Provides very current view of the emerging standards of practice in information security
