A Darned Good Read!,
This review is from: Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems (Wiley Computer Publishing) (Paperback)
The best general Information Security introduction Iï¿½ve read. Very readable, with lots of references, Ross combines a wealth of practical experience with his academic prowess. Note that whilst he explains much of the technology in detail, it is not technology-specific in the way of, say, Hacking Exposed. This is not really a ï¿½how to do IS in 10 easy stepsï¿½ book - it is more reflective, and questions many traditional assumptions. It also takes a critical look at many of the issues involved with physical security, though does not cover Disaster Recovery/ Business Continuity Planning.
