Covers how to run the project of setting up a security architecture. Provides detail project plans and templates for policies standards and procedures. Some useful sample policies and procedures along with assessment workplans.
You may take issue with the author over the approach to some areas, but overall a good book.

THOROUGH REFERENCE GUIDE 23 Mar 2001
By Karen A. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This was a great reference to start an Information Security Architecture project. There are many guidelines, procedures and forms that take the guess work out of the administration of such a project. The book is great at keeping you on track with your security objectives. I have found that it is so easy with such large projects to lose sight of the objectives. Security is not only technical assessments of the network and operating components but also a combination of management and administration of personnel, policies and procedures and continuous application of pressure to meeting the security requirements of an organization. This book provides excellent value for the price.

Is there a lower rating available? 26 Oct 2004
By Phil McKrackin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, I can definitively state that this book does not cover everything that needs to be covered or in any depth whatsoever. I got this book based on the glowing reviews I found here, and I'm at a loss as to why these reviews would have recommended it.

The most aggrevating part about this book is the subtitle "An Integrated Approach to Security in the Organization." The book not only lacks effective security integration techniques, it doesn't seem to address the entire organization where it tries its half-hearted integration.

A Realistic Approach to the Implementation of Security 1 Mar 2001
By Bob Ondrejko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There is so much involved in implementing security effectively throughout an organization. Without detailed experience it is easy to get lost in the midst of it all. Jan Tudor's book provides an organized thought process to the tasks at hand when implementing security in an integrated approach. This book provides a good combination of management, administration and technical implementations to security. The checklists, templates and forms eliminate the need to start an ISA project from scratch. This book is highly recommended and practical if you are going to take on such a project.

Great start but tails off 28 Dec 2000
By Aaron Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Architecture books seems to be one of the "in" titles now and the upcoming releases and are badly needed. However, this book does not provide a thorough treatment of the topic.
The first two chapters begin well and if the remainder of the book had drilled into the issues, it would be superb, but such is not the case. Instead the result is an overview of much of the information security topic area.
It is a good book for non-security IT professionals and perhaps useful in an introductory course as a text, but inadequate for in-depth work in infrastructure design.
At the same time, this book is far superior to Held & Hundley's Security Architectures whichs dwells on Cisco PIX and router configurations and fails to consider how those pieces fit into a larger IT and IS architecture.

Very Informative 14 Mar 2001
By Linda Frattaroli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have worked with Jan with our security project & the company I work for has really benefited from the knowledge and expertise from Jan's book. In addition, we have used the structure she illustrates in "Information Security Architecture" for implementing our company's Security Project and it is well underway due to Jan's helpful contribution. I recommend this to anyone who will be working to lay the groundwork for Security purposes. This is a valuable piece of information - Great work Jan!
