About this book

Follow step-by-step guidance to craft a successful security program. You will identify with the paradoxes of information security and discover handy tools that hook security controls into business processes.

Information security is more than configuring firewalls, removing viruses, hacking machines, or setting passwords. Creating and promoting a successful security program requires skills in organizational consulting, diplomacy, change management, risk analysis, and out-of-the-box thinking.

What You Will Learn:

  • Build a security program that will fit neatly into an organization and change dynamically to suit both the needs of the organization and survive constantly changing threats
  • Prepare  for and pass such common audits as PCI-DSS, SSAE-16, and ISO 27001
  • Calibrate the scope, and customize security controls to fit into an organization’s culture
  • Implement the most challenging processes, pointing out common pitfalls and distractions
  • Frame security and risk issues to be clear and actionable so that decision makers, technical personnel, and users will listen and value your advice

Who This Book Is For:

IT professionals moving into the security field; new security managers, directors, project heads, and would-be CISOs; and security specialists from other disciplines moving into information security (e.g., former military security professionals, law enforcement professionals, and physical security professionals)

Reviews

“Pompon provides step-by-step guidance for successfully establishing a security management system for an organization’s IT systems. … The introduction provides a good road map to the book, and each chapter finishes with a list of further readings. There is a good index and a very thorough table of contents. … This is a good, step-by-step approach to building a security program that should protect an organization’s IT systems and, importantly, also be able to demonstrate that protection to an auditor.” (David B. Henderson, Computing Reviews, April, 2017)
