Summary: The challenges you face as an information security manager (ISM) have increased enormously since the first edition of this title was published.

In this revised edition Simmons uses her extensive experience to provide an important insight into the changing role and responsibilities of the ISM, walking you through a typical ISM's year and using the role of project manager on a programme of change to highlight the various incidents and issues that arise on an almost daily basis - and often go unnoticed. You'll discover the importance of having a camera with you at all times. For too long, security has been seen as more of an inhibitor than an enabler. -- Edited summary from book.
