Reviews

From the reviews:

"The authors of this book are known to researchers in information technology security … . This book is a short introduction to information security governance. … The book gives managers a quick overview of what this term, ‘information security governance,’ is about and serves as a reference for managers. The book might also be useful for university courses that only touch on the subject, at an introductory level. … The book is well written, easy to read, and has clear benefits for the reader."
