Building and Implementing a Security Certification and Accreditation Program: Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CAP CBK demonstrates the practicality and effectiveness of certification and accreditation (C&A) as a risk management methodology for IT systems in both public and private organizations. It provides security professionals with an overview of C&A components, enabling them to document the status of the security controls of their IT systems, and learn how to secure systems via standard, repeatable processes.

This book consists of four main sections. It begins with a description of what it takes to build a certification and accreditation program at the organization level, followed by an analysis of various C&A processes and how they interrelate. The text then provides a case study of the successful implementation of certification and accreditation in a major U.S. government department. It concludes by offering a collection of helpful samples in the appendices.
