ISO27001 in a Windows Environment : The Best Practice Handbook for a Microsoft Windows Environment

Brian Honan

Most ISO27001 implementations will involve a Windows(R) environment at some level. The different approaches to security, however, mean that there is often a knowledge gap between those trying to implement ISO27001 and the IT specialists trying to put the necessary best practice controls in place using Microsoft(R)s technical controls. ISO27001 in a Windows(R) Environment, Third Edition bridges the gap and gives essential guidance to everyone involved in a Windows(R)-based ISO27001 project. Explaining best practice implementation over a wide range of Windows(R) environments, this third edition covers Windows(R) 8 and Microsoft(R) Windows Server(R) 2012. It is also completely aligned to ISO27001:2013, the latest version of the international standard for information security management. Using the guidance in this book, ISO27001 project managers can explain the best practice requirements of the standard to technical security specialists in a way that they will quickly understand. In the same way, technical experts can use this book to gain a deeper understanding of ISO27001, making it easier for them to implement technical solutions that fulfil the requirements. This means that everyone on the project talks the same language, helping the team to work together more effectively.
