The modern dependence upon information technology and the corresponding information security regulations and requirements force companies to evaluate the security of their core business processes, mission critical data, and supporting IT environment. Combine this with a slowdown in IT spending resulting in justifications of every purchase, and security professionals are forced to scramble to find comprehensive and effective ways to assess their environment in order to discover and prioritize vulnerabilities, and to develop cost-effective solutions that show benefit to the business. A Practical Guide to Security Assessments is a process-focused approach that presents a structured methodology for conducting assessments. The key element of the methodology is an understanding of business goals and processes, and how security measures are aligned with business risks. The guide also emphasizes that resulting security recommendations should be cost-effective and commensurate with the security risk. The methodology described serves as a foundation for building and maintaining an information security program. In addition to the methodology, the book includes an Appendix that contains questionnaires that can be modified and used to conduct security assessments. This guide is for security professionals who can immediately apply the methodology on the job, and also benefits management who can use the methodology to better understand information security and identify areas for improvement.

Organizations rely on digital information today more than ever before. Unfortunately, that information is equally sought after by criminals. New security standards and regulations are being implemented to deal with these threats, but they are very broad and organizations require focused guidance to adapt the guidelines to their specific needs. Fortunately, Information Security: Design, Implementation, Measurement, and Compliance outlines a complete roadmap to successful adaptation and implementation of a security program based on the ISO/IEC 17799:2005 (27002) Code of Practice for Information Security Management. The book first describes a risk assessment model, a detailed risk assessment methodology, and an information security evaluation process. Upon this foundation, the author presents a proposed security baseline for all organizations, an executive summary of the ISO/IEC 17799 standard, and a gap analysis exposing the differences between the recently rescinded version and the newly released version of the standard. Finally, he devotes individual chapters to each of the 11 control areas defined in the standard, covering systematically the 133 controls within the 39 control objectives. Tim Layton's Information Security is a practical tool to help you understand the ISO/IEC 17799 standard and apply its principles within your organization's unique context.

Understanding Surveillance Technologies demystifies spy devices and describes how technology is used to observe and record intimate details of people’s lives—often without their knowledge or consent. From historical origins to current applications, it explains how satellites, pinhole cameras, cell phone and credit card logs, DNA kits, tiny microphones (“bugs”), chemical sniffers, and implanted RF/ID chips have enabled us to create a two-edged sword—devices that promise security while, at the same time, eroding our privacy. Understanding Surveillance Technologies is profusely illustrated with extensive references and indexes, laying the groundwork for more specialized texts on specific technologies. It covers each of the major sensing devices and explains how they are used in civilian, criminal justice, scientific, national security, and military applications. It also includes recent changes in legislation and the organization of the intelligence community, and discusses how equal access to high-tech sensing devices and encryption schemes has changed society. Understanding Surveillance Technologies is modular, so the chapters can be read in any order, and is written in an accessible, somewhat narrative style, to suit the needs of journalists/newscasters, privacy organizations, educators, civic planners, and technology centers. It is appropriate as an adjunct reference for criminal justice/law enforcement/military, and forensic trainees, and as a textbook for courses in Surveillance Studies, Sociology, Communications, and Political Science. Now in its second edition, with 1,000 pages and more than 700 diagrams, it is still the only text that comprehensively conveys the breadth of the field.

The Practical Guide to Release of Information: ROI in a HITECH World, Second Edition Rose T. Dunn, MBA, RHIA, CPA, CHPS, FACHE Ben Burton, JD, MBA, RHIA, CHP, CHC Release of information (ROI) is a complex but core health information management (HIM) function in hospitals, physician practices, and other healthcare facilities. Concern about identity theft, the protection of special information and populations, and an increasingly transient patient population make preparing and sharing copies of medical records a complex but critical task--especially because HIM professionals must also ensure the process is compliant, efficient, and accurate. The complexity of ROI is compounded by the many federal laws and even more stringent state laws; the many variations and myriad of legal issues involved are difficult to sort through and even more difficult to put into practice. The Practical Guide to Release of Information: ROI in a HITECH World, Second Edition, provides an in-depth look at release of information from a legal, technological, and cost-effectiveness standpoint. This definitive guide discusses regulations that affect ROI, how to design an effective ROI department, the role of ROI in a legal environment, and technological applications for ROI. It addresses practical management issues related to quality control, backlog, turnaround times, and productivity. It also provides relevant policies and procedures, job descriptions, tracking logs, and more. Features include: Information on recent regulatory changes affecting ROI ROI specialist job descriptions, productivity expectations, cost analysis and copy charges, cross training, and other information needed to increase the efficiency of your department Role of new technologies and efficiencies in ROI Easy-to-understand analysis of the role that ROI plays in subpoenas, depositions, and court appearances Strategies for safeguarding against lawsuits Breakdown of state regulations regarding ROI Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1: What Is Release of Information? Chapter 2: Release of Information: The Process Chapter 3: A Blueprint for Establishing Release of Information Services Chapter 4: Resources Necessary for Release of Information Chapter 5: Why We Need to Know about Costs Associated with Release of Information Chapter 6: Case Study: Bringing ROI In-House Chapter 7: Release of Information Challenges Chapter 8: Anatomy of the Copy Cost Lawsuit Chapter 9: Patient Portals and ROI in Physician Practices Chapter 10: E-Discovery Chapter 11: Federal Preemption of State Release of Information Laws Chapter 12: The HIPAA Omnibus Rule and the HITECH Act Appendix Who should read this book?
