IT Governance: A Manager's Guide to Data Security and ISO 27001 / ISO 27002 by Alan Calder
Information is widely regarded as the lifeblood of modern business, but organizations are facing a flood of threats to such 'intellectual capital' - from hackers, viruses and online fraud. Increasingly, data protection, privacy regulations, computer misuse and regulations around investigatory powers are part of a complex and often competing range of requirements to which directors must respond. IT Governance will be essential to board members, executives, owners and managers of any business or organization that depends on information, that uses computers on a regular basis or that has an internet aspect to its overall strategy. With full coverage of the Turnbull Report and the Combined Code (in the UK), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (in the US), the book examines standards of best practice for companies looking to protect and enhance their information security management systems, allowing them to ensure that their IT security strategies are co-ordinated, coherent, comprehensive and cost effective. Each book comes with password-protected access to the www.itgovernance.co.uk website, for the latest news updates in this dynamic and constantly-changing sector.
