Addressing both the technical and human side of IS security, Dhillon's Princliples of Information Systems Security: Texts and Cases equips managers (and those training to be managers) with an understanding of a broad range issues related to information system security management, and specific tools and techniques to support this managerial orientation. Coverage goes well beyond the technical aspects of information system security to address formal controls (the rules and procedures that need to be established for bringing about success of technical controls), as well as informal controls that deal with the normative structures that exist within organizations.
