Overview

Taking a managerial approach, PRINCIPLES OF INFORMATION SECURITY emphasizes all aspects of information security -- not just the technical control perspective -- to provide a broad overview of the entire field. Students review terms used in the field, a history of the discipline, and a summary of how to manage an information security program. Current and relevant, the sixth edition highlights the latest practices with fresh examples that explore the impact of emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and DevOps. Updates address technical security controls, emerging legislative issues, digital forensics, and ethical issues in IS security, making this resource ideal for business decision-makers.
