No one ever arrested a computer for computer crime.

The real threat to information systems security comes from people, not computers. That’s why students need to understand both the technical implementation of security controls, as well as the softer human behavioral and managerial factors that contribute to the theft and sabotage of proprietary data.

Addressing both the technical and human side of information systems security, Dhillon’s Principles of Information Systems Security helps future managers understand the broad range of technical, managerial, ethical, and legal issues related to IS security, and equips them with specific tools and techniques to support effective IS security management.
