It’s been 13 years since I last authored a book so to avoid any comparisons to J. D. Salinger, known for his virtual disappearance from the publishing scene after releasing his most famous work (people often get us confused), I dipped a toe in the book business again in at least a small way …

ISMH CoverIf you’ve ever tried studying for the CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional) exam, often referred to as the “gold standard” of professional certs for the IT security industry,  you’ve probably run across the Information Security Management Handbook. Now in its 6th edition, this collection of essays covering the 10 domains of what is referred to as the CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) is updated annually with new chapters on issues relevant to practitioners. 

This year’s update (Volume 7), includes 27 new chapters including my $0.02’s worth (maybe less) on Identity and Access Management (a.k.a. IAM) architecture. I adapted this from a presentation that the publisher saw me give at InfoSec World 2012 and hope you find it useful.

It’s an honor to have my words alongside those from some of the true leaders of the industry, many of whom are probably now scanning the table of contents and wondering how I slipped in.  🙂
