Addressing both the technical and human side of information systems security, Dhillon's "Principles of Information Systems Security" helps future managers understand the broad range of technical, managerial, ethical, and legal issues related to IS security, and equips them with specific tools and techniques to support effective IS security management. Key Features Balanced coverage addresses the social and technical nature of IS security. Takes a managerial orientation, presenting key security challenges that information technology managers commonly face. Provides an analytical framework to conceptualize IS security problems.
