About the book

Faced with the compliance requirements of increasingly punitive information and privacy-related regulation, as well as the proliferation of complex threats to information security, there is an urgent need for organizations to adopt IT governance best practice.

IT Governance is a key international resource for managers in organizations of all sizes and across industries, and deals with the strategic and operational aspects of information security.

Now in its seventh edition, the bestselling IT Governance provides guidance for companies looking to protect and enhance their information security management systems (ISMS) and protect themselves against cyber threats. The new edition covers changes in global regulation, particularly GDPR, and updates to standards in the ISO/IEC 27000 family, BS 7799-3:2017 (information security risk management) plus the latest standards on auditing. It also includes advice on the development and implementation of an ISMS that will meet the ISO 27001 specification and how sector-specific standards can and should be factored in. With information on risk assessments, compliance, equipment and operations security, controls against malware and asset management, IT Governance is the definitive guide to implementing an effective information security management and governance system.

  • This book is to ISO27002 what ISO27002 is to ISO27001 - it is the guidance to the standard's guidance. As such, it is the most impressively comprehensive guide to implementing ISO27001-level InfoSec in your organisation. It gives detailed understanding and insight about the motivation and purpose of the different controls that will help build a fit-for-purpose ISMS. Because of this, I chose it as the set book for the very popular Open University Introduction to InfoSec module.
