ROCKLAND, Mass. -- Syngress Publishing, Inc., today announced the publication of Dictionary of Information Security (ISBN: 1597491152), by Robert Slade.
According to Hal Tipton, CISSP, ISSAP, ISSMP, and author of the book's foreword, "What is needed now in the world of information security is a single glossary of terms using the preferred definition for each term to be published and used throughout the world. I personally have come face to face with this definition problem as the chief instructor over the past dozen years for the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2. In that role, I have developed several courses that addressed topics contained in the Common Body of Knowledge for the information security field that dealt with concepts and definitions. I struggled continuously to select the most appropriate definition for many of the most important terms. As a result, I am supportive of the idea of publishing an official glossary of terms for information security professionals and related personnel. Rob Slade has undertaken this difficult task, and his Dictionary should prove to be one of the most helpful additions to the professional library of every one of us working in the field of information security."
