As an professor that teaches information security at the undergraduate and graduate level I was interested in this book to enhance the strategic direction of my courses. As we all know, most of the problems with info security can be attributed to management and personnel, not technology. This book does a good job of framing and explaining a strategic approach. Although I will not require of my students, I will recommend as a way of understanding the big picture of security. Too often we learn bits and pieces of a subject and never understand how all the pieces fit together. This book does a good job of putting all of the pieces together in a nice strategic approach.
