Now in its sixth edition, this 3200 page, 4 volume stand-alone reference is organized under the CISSP Common Body of Knowledge domains and has been updated yearly. Each annual update, the latest is Volume 6, reflects the changes to the CBK in response to new laws and evolving technology.

In response to new developments, Volume 4 supplements the previous three volumes with new information covering topics such as wireless, HIPAA, the latest hacker attacks and defenses, intrusion detection, and provides expanded coverage on security management issues and applications security. Even those that don't plan on sitting for the CISSP exam will find that this handbook is a great information security reference.
