Principles of Information Security examines the field of information security to prepare information systems students for their future roles as business decision-makers. This textbook presents a balance of the managerial and the technical aspects of the discipline and addresses knowledge areas of the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) certification throughout. The authors discuss information security within a real-world context, by including examples of issues faced by today's professionals and by including tools, such as an opening vignette and "Offline" boxes with interesting sidebar stories in each chapter. Principles of Information Security also offers extensive opportunities for hands-on work.
