IT Governance, the global provider of ISO27001 and cyber security products and services, has announced that the long-awaited update of the bestselling book ISO27001 in a Windows Environment is now available from the IT Governance e-commerce website.
Written by renowned IT security expert Brian Honan, ISO27001 in a Windows Environment has been published by IT Governance Publishing (ITGP), of whose titles IT Governance is a major reseller.
Honan explains: “Having watched clients struggle to understand and grasp the concepts of ISO27001, and then having to further translate those concepts so that their technical IT personnel could appreciate what was required, I decided to write ISO27001 in a Windows Environment to make that task easier for them.”
Using the guidance in this book, ISO27001 project managers can explain the best-practice requirements of the Standard to technical security specialists in a way that they will quickly understand. In the same way, technical experts can use this book to gain a deeper understanding of ISO27001, making it easier for them to implement technical solutions that fulfil their requirements. This means that everyone on the project talks the same language, helping the team to work together more effectively.
Honan continues: “I decided that since the Microsoft® Windows® platform and various other Microsoft® products are so commonly used in many organisations, I would base the technical details on those Microsoft® technologies. So began a long and interesting journey as I delved further into the workings of the Microsoft® Windows® operating system and Microsoft® Windows Server®, among various other products.
“This book shows how an IT manager can leverage the Microsoft® technology already available to them to support their implementation of the ISO27001 information security management Standard.”
This third edition covers the latest version of the Standard (ISO/IEC 27001:2013), as well as Windows®7 and 8, and Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 and 2012.
