    Book details

Faced with constant and fast-evolving threats to information security and with a growing exposure to cyber risk, managers at all levels and in organizations of all sizes need a robust IT governance system. Now in its sixth edition, the bestselling IT Governance provides guidance for companies looking to protect and enhance their information security management systems and protect themselves against cyber threats. This version has been fully updated to take account of current cyber security and advanced persistent threats and reflects the latest regulatory and technical developments, including the 2013 updates to ISO 27001/ISO 27002.

Changes for this edition include: updates in line with the revised ISO 27001 standard and accompanying ISO 27002 code of practice for information security controls; full coverage of changes to data-related regulations in different jurisdictions and advice on compliance; guidance on the options for continual improvement models and control frameworks made possible by the new standard; new developments in cyber risk and mitigation practices; guidance on the new information security risk assessment process and treatment requirements. Including coverage of key international markets, IT Governance is the definitive guide to implementing an effective information security management and governance system.

"One of the greatest features of this guide is that it approaches IT governance from the prospective of a director or manager rather than an IT specialist, meaning you do not have to already be well versed in IT governance to glean the important points and lessons demonstrated within these pages." (Nikki Lazenby and Chris Moffitt, Internal Auditing)

  • By Paul T. on 21 December 2015

    Excellent book. Has helped us write our policies and pass a recent audit. The book provides understanding and insight about the purpose of the different policies rather than taking a tick box approach to quality. Highly recommend this book for managers and developers alike.

    Quite simply if you are involved in ISO2700x and need a comprehensive overview then this is the book you have to have read.

    Reasonably good. I'd only buy if you are implementing 27001 not an interesting read otherwise, except as a reference book.

    I think it is one of the best book for ISO 27001 implementation and auditing that I have red.

    Fantastic publication..... Easy reading on what is generally thought to be a boring subject

    Could offer better examples of policies, but explains in a clear manner what is expected.Very useful.
