About the book

The development of IT Governance, which recognizes the convergence between business and IT management, makes it essential for managers at all levels and in organizations of all sizes to understand how best to deal with information security risks. International IT Governance explores new legislation, including the launch of ISO/IEC 27001, which makes a single, global standard of information security best practice available.
