Shelves: business, non-fiction
Dry as a bone, but a good signpost for thinking about where you should go from here in the field of information security. Phase 2 gets a bit abstract, dealing with risk in a more nebulous way than I think most folks would prefer. Nevertheless, there's a lot of good practical advice in here; this is definitely something I'll share with some of my team members who are really driven to help mature the IT and security organization.

I thought that this was an okay read, but about 60% of the content was a rote rehash of the much more generally applicable The Visible Ops Handbook. With this book smaller than a lot of coffee table books, that doesn't leave a whole lot of content for the money. Worth borrowing, not worth buying.

Like the other Visible Ops books, its strength lies in the distillation of complex information to a set of essentials well suited to a management audience. These books can be used to guide processes towards functional implementations of ITIL and a healthier service orientation.
