Format: Hardcover
The Computer and Information Security Handbook is one of the most comprehensive and well written books covering the subject matter that I have ever read. John Vacca, the managing editor of the Handbook, has brought together a renowned group of subject area experts that have authored an excellent collection of chapters in this book. It is an invaluable resource that addresses the latest theories, technologies and practices as they relate to computer and information security. This book is a "WINNER", and should on every information technology professionals' book shelf.

I was looking for a great technical book that would help me to understand many aspects of information security but this book does give good information but just doesn't give the technical information i was looking for. I saw after purchasing the book that it was written by a technical writer. nonetheless, it does give good information for a person just wanting to be in the "know" about what goes on in the cyber world.
