Overcoming information security challenges

The challenges you face as an information security manager (ISM) are enormous; billions of people have been affected by data breaches, and countless companies have fallen victim to cyber attacks. It’s your duty to ensure that your organisation isn’t next.

The ISM’s 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.

With what may seem like the world upon your shoulders, how you approach your role, your responsibilities and the way you communicate with the rest of the organisation can have a huge impact on your delivery.

Insider view of effective management

This book speaks directly to information security managers, providing an insider’s view of the role and offers priceless gems from the author’s extensive experience. It walks you through a typical ISM’s year, and highlights the challenges and pitfalls of an information security programme.
