Understand the role of Information Security Managers

Your responsibilities as an information security manager are critical. Advising on protecting the organisation's assets, security and data systems, not to mention its reputation, are in your hands. A major security breach could spell disaster.

The buck stops with you. Can you handle it?

In Once more unto the Breach, Andrea C Simmons speaks directly to information security managers and provides an insider's view of the role, offering priceless gems from her extensive experience and knowledge.

Based on a typical year in the life of an information security manager, the book examines how the general principles can be applied to all situations and discusses the lessons learnt from a real project.

Improve your organisation's security

One of the greatest challenges faced by an information security manager is convincing colleagues of the importance of following the necessary processes and procedures. As you walk through the year with Andrea, you will make significant inroads into improving your organisation's security as you:

  • think creatively in order to provide solutions to ongoing issues
  • create a workable information security policy
  • make friends with the right people in order to facilitate critical changes

  • improve physical security by helping others to take personal responsibility
  • learn strategies for the effective communication of key security messages in order to maximise use of the measures in place
  • appreciate how all this helps you to address the human factors and reduce your cyber risks – which are ultimately security risks
  • discover why it's essential to have a camera on you at all times!
