5.0 out of 5 stars Useful supplement to ISO27k 25 Aug. 2012
By Dr. G. Hinson - Published on
The book is largely concerned with selecting/designing information security controls based on the advice in ISO/IEC 27002. Covering the same sequence of topics, the text expands on the standard's relatively high level descriptions of all manner of information security controls. The advice it dispenses is quite detailed, suited to mid-level/junior managers and specialists designing and implementing an Information Security Management System.

Now in its fifth edition, the authors have consistently updated the book to mention topical information security issues such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), virtualization, social media and cloud computing, even though these are not explicitly mentioned in the current ISO/IEC 27000-series standards.

The writing is clear and the guidance sensible.

Information security professionals working for ISO/IEC 27001 certified organizations recommend this book: it is a worthwhile supplement to the standards themselves.
