This is a rare book in the Information security arena, which manages to deliver an effective message in less than 100 pages. It offers much, to many different players in the implementation and review of an Information Security Management System. To the experienced practitioner, it is a good source to review present activities against. For the practitioner new to the management of information security, it gives valuable advice on planning, preparation and implementation. While to the manager whose business is going through an ISMS programme, it explains what is happening and their part in it. If you are looking for a book that gives you a list of technical controls that can give perfect security for any business this is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for guidance in managing the securing of your business, then this is the book for you.
