The Information Systems Security Officer's Guide: Establishing and Managing a Cyber Security Program, Third Edition, provides users with information on how to combat the ever-changing myriad of threats security professionals face. This entirely updated edition presents practical advice on establishing, managing, and evaluating a successful information protection program in a corporation or government agency, covering everything from effective communication to career guidance for the information security officer.

The book outlines how to implement a new plan or evaluate an existing one, and is especially targeted to those who are new to the topic. It is the definitive resource for learning the key characteristics of an effective information systems security officer (ISSO), and paints a comprehensive portrait of an ISSO's duties, their challenges, and working environments, from handling new technologies and threats, to performing information security duties in a national security environment.
