Reviews

This iteration provides additional guidance on how security practitioners can show they are adding value to goals of the workplace. Web links for current resources are substantially enlarged. And a detailed outline in chapter 9 of a Request for Proposal (RFP) to contact for security services has been refreshed and extended. How security has changed since 9/11 is assessed. Fundamentally, this is a book to encourage best practices, but moreover to constantly innovate and never to accept yesterday's status quo.- Security Letter, February 16, 2007
