Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The book also addresses some of the legal issues surrounding security, which is great because it might alert you to things you might otherwise have overlooked or not known. The cost/benefit and risk analysis provided is also great ammo if you need to convince your management team as to why security spending is important (and shouldn't be subject to budget cuts anytime soon).
As with Snedaker's other books, this one is well-organized and written in a conversatational tone that you'll find a refreshing change from some of the other IT PM books out there. The chapters follow a logical flow and the information is presented in a way I found easy to implement. I previously purchased Snedaker's IT Project Management book last year and I have used it countless times. I have had this book for a few weeks and I can already tell by the dog-earred pages that I'll be using this one frequently as well.
I'd recommend this book to anyone in IT who deals with security or anyone who needs to "sell" their management on why security is important.
