Book Description :

Spectacular security failures continue to dominate the headlines despite huge increases in security budgets and ever-more draconian regulations. The 20/20 hindsight of audits is no longer an effective solution to security weaknesses, and the necessity for real-time strategic metrics has never been more critical. Information Security Management Metrics: A Definitive Guide to Effective Security Monitoring and Measurement offers a radical new approach for developing and implementing security metrics essential for supporting business activities and managing information risk. This work provides anyone with security and risk management responsibilities insight into these critical security questions: How secure is my organization? How much security is enough? What are the most cost-effective security solutions? How secure is my organization? You can’t manage what you can’t measure This volume shows readers how to develop metrics that can be used across an organization to assure its information systems are functioning, secure, and supportive of the organization’s business objectives. It provides a comprehensive overview of security metrics, discusses the current state of metrics in use today, and looks at promising new developments. Later chapters explore ways to develop effective strategic and management metrics for information security governance, risk management, program implementation and management, and incident management and response. The book ensures that every facet of security required by an organization is linked to business objectives, and provides metrics to measure it. Case studies effectively demonstrate specific ways that metrics can be implemented across an enterprise to maximize business benefit. With three decades of enterprise information security experience, author Krag Brotby presents a workable approach to developing and managing cost-effective enterprise information security.

Book Description :

How far would or should you go to feel secure? While everyone wants safety and security, the measures to achieve it are often viewed of as intrusive, unwanted, a hassle, and limiting to personal and professional freedoms. Yet, when an incident occurs, we can never have enough security. Security Management for Occupational Safety provides a framework through which occupational safety practitioners can critically examine their organizational environments and make them safer while assuming a best possible relationship between obtrusion and necessity. This book examines the diverse factors involved in occupational management—planning, people, budget, information, and preparedness—to present an accurately balanced picture of safety functions. It uses a critical thinking approach to interpreting data as a tool for providing more effective occupational safety management. The book discusses core security management competencies of planning, organizing, staffing, and leading while providing a process to critically analyze those functions. It stresses the benefits of using a methodical critical thinking process in building a comprehensive safety management system, addressing information security, cyber security, energy-sector security, chemical security, and general security management utilizing a critical thinking framework. The author doesn’t focus on how to secure, guard, or protect. While there are commonalities in many aspects of occupational risks and hazards, all are going to be unique. Instead, he guides you through each stage of critical thinking, emphasizing the ability to articulate the differing aspects of business and security management by reasoning through complex problems in the changing organizational landscape. The book not only provides fundamental concepts in security but it also creates informed, critical, and creative security managers who communicate effectively in their environment and make informed well-thought-out judgments to tailor a security program to fit a specific organization.
