    This book has been one of the best IT books I have ever read. An excellent reference guide for all aspects in IT Security, written in a very well-structured and perfectly documented plain English language. It is written in an Executive style going into some technical details - but not too many to destroy the style - when the subject requires it. There's a wealth of references for the best books around at the end of each chapter that allows the reader regardless of his/her level of familiarization with a specific subject to delve as deep as they wish.Hardly found any mistakes or typos in more than 800 pages of text, making the book very easy to read, understand, assimilate and refer back to any subject when needed.
