3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Harold McFarland HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on September 24, 2006
Format: Paperback
In this book author Susan Snedaker covers the complete project management spectrum from the overall plan to individual project plans for various areas. The book is divided in to various sections including Defining, Organizing, Planning, Initiating, and Managing Change. She does a really good job of pointing out the importance of defining the project up front. This is a critically important step that is often overlooked. This is where you define the mission, expected outcomes, optimal solution, and constraints. If you don't know where you are going then the path there can be very convoluted and this is a common problem with IT projects of all types. Another exceptional section is the one on planning. In that section she details breaking down the overall project into tasks and sub-tasks as well as defining the scope and determining the critical path. For each chapter the highlights are presented in a checklist format at the end. IT Security Project Management Handbook is recommended to anyone who is in charge of a large scale IT project whether security or otherwise.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must-have IT resource. It covers project management principles quickly and effectively and points out areas specific to the topic of Security throughout the PM process. In the later chapters, the author provides a very specific set of guidelines for developing any security-related project plan and provides examples of a broad-based corporate security initiative, a general IT security plan that can easily be customized to your own unique situation, an infrastructure security plan that can also be customized to address mission-critical infrastructure security issues. The book includes a wireless security plan to help you address the ever-changing and growing needs of wireless security in the organization. The final chapter might be the reason you buy the book - the operational security project plan. In many organizations (including the one I work in as well as those my friends work in), the operational piece is poorly planned and/or poorly executed so that all the work done through these meticulously planned security projects is put at risk through sloppy operational planning and implementation (after all, that's not very interesting to most of us in IT).

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.
