Information Security Risk Management is the first book that takes a practical approach to how an organization needs to position itself to properly handle the ever-increasing and perennially mutating risks to their business-critical assets. By developing ready-to-go technological and human resources within the organization, companies will discover how to assess and avert these risks. The authors look at information technology people issues, procedures, tools, and preparedness and emphasize implementing a risk assessment team that can properly foresee, prevent, and/or rapidly remediate potential infractions.
