Overview

"As businesses and consumers become more dependent on complex multinational information systems, the need to understand and devise sound information security systems has never been greater. This title takes a practical approach to information security by focusing on real-world examples. While not sidestepping the theory, the emphasis is on developing the skills and knowledge that security and information technology students and professionals need to face their challenges." Additional features include numerous figures and tables to illustrate and clarify complex topics, as well as problems - ranging from basic to challenging - to help readers apply their newly developed skills. A solutions manual and a set of classroom-tested PowerPoint slides will assist instructors in their course development. Students and professors in information technology, computer science, and engineering, and professionals working in the field will find this reference most useful to solve their information security issues.
