Purely based on the information content this is not bad- it's a shallow but wide treatment, which is to be expected when addressing a topic covered by so many different areas of law. But I was immediately stuck but the poor organization and remarkable number of editing errors. This appears to have been self-edited and self-published, which would be fine if it didn't read like a rough draft.

For example, the paragraph on page 32 regarding financial information opens with this sentence:

"The GLBA Safeguards Rule requires the financial institutions an information security program that protects the "security and confidentiality of customer information" (nonpublic personal information) by implementing administrative, physical and technical safeguards."

It ends with this sentence:

"Under the Dodd-Frank law, the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which will have powers similar to the FTC's "unfair and deceptive" trade practices standard and a new standard to deal with "abusive" acts and practices."

And the middle of the same paragraph includes a reference to "stated pubic polices".

Even with the worst errors you can typically piece together the authors intent, but it makes for an unnecessarily confusing and unpleasant read. Definitely not worth the price; arguably not worth the time.

It really is just an extremely broad overview of the discussion on key issues and reference to various sources. You wonder why you would want to spend $67 on it.

Covers all important areas when considering the Cloud as an option. I don't agree with everything but for the most part I do. I'd recommend to other Licensed Information Security and Privacy Professionals.
