of IT Security.
/
While Bruce Schneider rehashes old ideas discussed in his other IT Sec books, this read is well organized, with lots of practical examples and quite thorough in his extensive coverage of all security measures.
/
The best thing about this book is how the presentation of various IT Security measures makes the reader aware of how imporatnt security policies are and what the important aspects of security management are. This read is definitely beneficial for IT and Security managers.
/
When reading this book I could not help but get annoyed with how verbose this book is. One could easily eliminate various paragraphs and still maintain the integrity of the books message.
