Information Security Course Textbook

Information Security Course Textbook

A novel non-technical approach to all aspects of information security.

Price: £54.99 (GBP)

Information Security for Managers discusses various threats to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, and offers practical countermeasures for mangers, drawing extensively on the latest applied research and development rather than simply repeating the information in numerous other textbooks and popular guides.

The book uses an incremental pedagogical method called ‘knowledge scaffolding’, a proven educational technique which reinforces learning through an elaborative rehearsal process which builds knowledge progressively.

Instructor Resources include answers to the end-of-chapter questions and a PowerPoint Image Bank that contains key images from the text.
