Product Description: Information Risk and Security explains the complex and diverse sources of risk for any organization and provides clear guidance and strategies to address these threats before they happen, and to investigate them, if and when they do. Edward Wilding focuses particularly on internal IT risk, workplace crime, and the preservation of evidence, because it is these areas that are generally so mismanaged. There is advice on: ¢ preventing computer fraud, IP theft and systems sabotage ¢ adopting control and security measures that do not hinder business operations but which effectively block criminal access and misuse ¢ securing information - in both electronic and hard copy form ¢ understanding and countering the techniques by which employees are subverted or entrapped into giving access to systems and processes ¢ dealing with catastrophic risk ¢ best-practice for monitoring and securing office and wireless networks ¢ responding to attempted extortion and malicious information leaks ¢ conducting covert operations and forensic investigations ¢ securing evidence where computer misuse occurs and presenting this evidence in court and much more. The author's clear and informative style mixes numerous case studies with practical, down-to-earth and easily implemented advice to help everyone with responsibility for this threat to manage it effectively. This is an essential guide for risk and security managers, computer auditors, investigators, IT managers, line managers and non-technical experts; all those who need to understand the threat to workplace computers and information systems.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
