Stapleton shares his knowledge, insights, and observations about information security based on his experience developing dozens of ISO Technical Committee 68 and ANSI accredited X9 standards. Rather than focusing on compliance or policies and procedures, this book takes a top-down approach. Starting with the fundamentals, it provides an understanding of how to approach information security from the bedrock principles of confidentiality, integrity, and authentication. The text explains how to implement encryption and digital signatures as the fundamental security controls into applications, policies, and procedures to meet business and compliance requirements. Providing a foundation in cryptography, it keeps things simple regarding symmetric versus asymmetric cryptography, and only refers to algorithms in general, without going too deeply into complex mathematics. Presenting coverage of non-repudiation, privacy, and key management, this book supplies authoritative insight for various users, providers, and regulators in the U.S. and abroad. --
