Review:
The primary audience described in the introduction seems to be security professionals. However, system administrators, technology managers, and CIOs are mentioned as well. The attempt at breadth of coverage usually does not bode well in works like these. Chapter one discusses an information security model based upon the business (and other) objectives of the institution in question.

Administrators, more technically savvy than their managers, have started to secure the networks in a way they see as appropriate. When management catches up to the notion that security is important, system administrators have already altered the goals and business practices. Although they may be grateful to these people for keeping the network secure, their efforts do not account for all assets and business requirementsFinally, someone decides it is time to write a security policy. Management is told of the necessity of the policy document, and they support its development. A manager or administrator is assigned to the task and told to come up with something, and fast!Once security policies are written, they must be treated as living docume...
