5.0 out of 5 stars Power to the People, 10 Aug 2009
This review is from: Managing the Human Factor in Information Security: How to Win Over Staff and Influence Business Managers (Paperback)
This is an excellent book that deserves to be widely read, not just by information security professionals, but by any one with an interest in understanding the human factors in other 'information' disciplines.

In part this book is a distillation of the author's considerable experience in the field, and for that alone worth reading. In part it is a veritable tapas of food for thought, that moves from hypnosis to the power of networks and systems thinking as applied to information security.

I have one criticism and that is in the discussion of Disaster Recovery the underlying model of 'Command and Control' is presented without a counter. It would have been interesting to see the author discuss the Toyota-Aisin P-valve crisis (as cited in Duncan Watt's Six Degrees).

A very worthy addition to my bookshelf.
