"The book includes illustrations and figures demonstrating key information security ideas, alerts to make the reader aware of particular insights, more advanced details for those wishing to do their own research above and beyond the contents of the book, and real world example summaries pertaining to key terms throughout the book. There is also an accessible bibliography mainly made up of online resources. The exercises at the end of each chapter also make this a good book for a first year security college class...All in all, this book is for those new to information security and for persons who are looking to learn about underlying concepts which underpin what is at the heart of information security in organizations."--Computers and Security "This book is a great primer for anyone who wants to get into cybersecurity. It methodically covers the key principles in a easy to understand flow that builds on itself. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to be able to intelligently discuss cybersecurity at work or in social settings."--Steve Winterfeld, Author of Cyber Warfare and CISSP/PMP "The Basics of Digital Forensics is extremely easy to read and understand, and tackles the topic in a very broad manner. All in all, it's a perfect book for those who are interested in the subject and for gauging whether they might be interested in finding out more about it in the future."--HelpNetSecurity "The complexity of Information Security is oftentimes overwhelming to those individuals new to the field. Unfortunately, there are too few resources available that can provide a clear and comprehensive understanding of InfoSec. This book rectifies this shortage and provides readers a comprehensive discussion on what every security professional should know intimately." - Thomas Wilhelm, HackingDojo.com "Overall, this book follows a logical progression and makes good use of heading and subheadings so that the material is easy to follow; diagrams are included where helpful. Boxouts are also used to good effect - you'll find Alerts for points you need to pay attention to and More Advanced for ones you can skip. The boxouts used towards the end of each chapter for 'Real World' topics allow the author to break out of textbook style and relate the material to a wider context. The chapters then conclude with a Summary followed by Exercises - a list of questions that serve as a check that you have understood the main points covered. No answers are provided so if you are stumped use the index or re-read before moving on. This book is aimed at beginners and is equally suitable as a course text or for self-study. The developer should, of course, have a working knowledge of the topics it covers and this is a good place to start if you need an overview of the basics."-- Alex Armstrong, i-Programmer.com

4.0 von 5 Sternen Provides a good introduction to information security 18. Januar 2012
Von Ben Rothke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
For those that want a 1,000+ page book on information security, there are plenty around. Surprisingly, there is a limited amount of introductory texts to this most important topic. To the rescue comes The Basics of Information Security: Understanding the Fundamentals of InfoSec in Theory and Practice.

At 175 pages, the book does not kill many trees, but does give the reader an overview of all of the key principles around information security.

Those looking for information security certification, the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) covers the topics relevant to information security professionals. The CISSP CBK establishes a common framework of information security terms and principles that allow information security professionals worldwide to discuss matters pertaining to the profession with a common understanding.

The books 10 chapters are closely tied to the CBK and provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the core topics around information security. This includes detailed chapters on identification and authentication, authorization and access control, cryptography, physical security operating system security and more.

The book makes ample use of pictures and figures to make many of the often abstract ideas easier to understand. Each chapter also ends with exercise questions to move the topic from theory to practice.

As indicative from the CBK, information security is an overwhelming body of knowledge, and for many it can indeed be a far too tremendous body of text to attempt to cover. To that effort this book is an invaluable resource as it covers the key areas without getting bogged down in the minutia.

For those looking to get their feet wet in the deep waters of information security, The Basics of Information Security: Understanding the Fundamentals of InfoSec in Theory and Practice is a great place to start.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Introduction 18. November 2013
Von Peter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is security 101. This book will not teach you to hack things, this books is not a technical guide. This book covers the cores and concepts of information security. I guess I would liken it to a management level. This covers various approached and perspectives on information security, using terms and acronyms you would find in the field such as the differences between a risk, and a threat. Or C.I.A. (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability), as well as more evolved concepts like the Parkerian Hexad. This book is a must read for anyone trying to break in to the security field. Before you start hacking away make sure you know and understand the contents of this book.

Von Jan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Bought this for an into to the topic of information security. I have a moderate technical background and find the book to be well suited to my needs. The book is written in an interesting manner, has good information and isn't wasting my time with a lot of filler like some "basic" books I've read on IT stuff. And my manager likes the book.
Summary: Good purchase. Would recommend to a colleague or friend.
