Because of the increasing value of information in our life, an environment where it can be processed, stored, and transmitted correctly and securely is essential. This book provides a new context for addressing some of the broader challenges of security.It encourages security professionals to look at the dangerous environment in which information systems exist, and to view the world of international standards and best practices as a resource for creating a culture of security within their own organizations.
