"In 'Information Security Law: Control of Digital Assets', Mark Milone offers a comprehensive and useable desk reference, invaluable to counsel wrestling with U.S. information security issues (from incident reaction, to breach notification, to security planning). Through extensive cross-referencing, this pulls together the mosaic of applicable rules and yields a comprehensible road-map to assessing information security obligations." -- Vincent I. Polley, partner at Dickinson Wright PLLC and former chair of the ABA's Cyberspace Law Committee

For most organizations, an effective information security policy is vitally important. In some instances, it is a legal requirement.

Information Security Law: Control of Digital Assets provides encyclopedic coverage of both the technologies used to protect a network and the laws and policies that bolster them. It is filled with practical advice on all aspects of implementing effective internal controls, protecting user privacy, preventing computer crimes, leveraging intellectual property and avoiding regulatory scrutiny.
