Editorial Reviews

Review

"Provides valuable directions on how measurement works and what goes into producing a useful metric. … when faced with the necessity of developing a metrics program to measure the effectiveness of some aspect of your security efforts, this rather imposing tome is one I would recommend as a way to jumpstart your efforts. The master table in the introduction provides a quick guide to the particular section most relevant to the reader’s need …”
— Richard Austin, in IEEE Cipher, June 2007

"... a useful reference for individuals who must meet the challenge of selecting good metrics."
—Cheryl Washington, Information Security Officer, California State University, in Educause Quarterly

Format: Hardcover
***This is a big book full of a lot of facts and figures.*** (Yes a very big book, not a cover to cover book.) 824 pages, 5 chapters and by no means a read it from cover to cover book. The first two chapters, the "Introduction" and "the What's and Whys of Metrics" are the authors interesting and quite knowledgeable overview of the world of operational, personal, physical and IT security metrics. After, the remaining chapters get in-depth. Chapter 3 "Measuring Compliance" goes into great detail about relating the different acts, bills, regulations and directives with various Metrics. Chapter 4 "Measuring Resilience" provides numerous worksheets and questionnaires as well as an abundance of information regarding threats, asset protection, mission protection, audit trails and others. Finally Chapter 5 "Measuring ROI" covers cost, benefits, some case studies and comparative analysis as well again some great worksheets.
A very useful and well organized guide. (Although a bit on the expensive side)

What can I say this book rocks and is written very well. Now not this is not a cute and fuzzy read this is more I have been doing this for some time and need some hard core reinforcement and sometimes it will smack you up side the back of the head with "Ah ha". This said I love this book, it is more text book style which for me is what I like, Teach me do not try to entertain me. If I wanted entertainment I would go see a movie. This is a great book for anyone doing IT or IT Security.

It's a good book. Lots of duplicity which makes the book HUGE. Just becoming dated material due to its publication date but recommend it.
