It gives practical guidance to those new to the role or interested in developing a better understanding of what it entails.
'A refreshingly good book - easy to read with excellent guidance for both budding auditors and auditees. Wendy's outline of a model Information Security Auditor outlines both the technical and personal skills required to succeed and it is her attention to the personal skill sets that is unique in this book.'
Vernon Poole, CISM, CGEIT & CRISC - Head of Business Consultancy, Sapphire 'I believe that the book could be a useful little primer for a very important position within the IT Security field.' -- Anthony Sutcliffe
