Once more unto the Breach: Managing information security in an uncertain world

The role of the information security manager has changed. Have you?

The challenges you face as an information security manager (ISM) have increased enormously since the first edition of Once more unto the breach was published.

What seemed exceptional in 2011 is the norm in 2015: vulnerabilities have been experienced across all operating systems, millions of individuals have been affected by data breaches, and countless well-known companies have fallen victim to cyber attacks.

It’s your duty to ensure that your organisation isn’t next.

The ISM’s information security responsibilities now cover all aspects of the organisation and its operations, and relate to the security of information in all forms, locations and transactions across the organisation – and beyond.

Topics covered include:
  • Project management
  • Physical security
  • Password management
  • Consumerisation (BYOD)
  • Audit log management
  • Vulnerability management
  • Cloud computing
  • Incident reporting
  • Penetration testing
  • Linking information security with records management
  • Privacy impact assessments
  • Internal auditing

In this revised edition of Once more unto the breach, Andrea C Simmons uses her extensive experience to provide an important insight into the changing role and responsibilities of the ISM, walking you through a typical ISM’s year and highlighting the challenges and pitfalls of an information security programme.

One of the key failures of security change management is that it is perceived as a project instead of a programme , and is therefore mistakenly assumed to have an end. Once more unto the breach explains why information security is an ongoing process, using the role of project manager on a programme of change to highlight the various incidents and issues that arise on an almost daily basis – and often go unnoticed.

A major challenge for the ISM is achieving all-important buy-in from their colleagues. Once more unto the breach explains how to express the importance of the tasks you are undertaking in language that executive management will understand. You’ll also discover the importance of having a camera with you at all times.

For too long, security has been seen as more of an inhibitor than an enabler. Once more unto the breach is an invaluable resource that will help you improve this perception, and achieve better overall information protection results as a result.
