Review:

"This is the 2nd edition of the classic reference on system security but encompasses many new topics that have become relevant since the 1st edition.In this huge volume (1171 pages and online content) the numerous chapters cover almost every conceivable aspect of information and system security."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 "The handbook is well organized and homogeneous, despite contributions by various authors. The new section on practical security is a welcome addition.this handbook will continue to be a very useful resource for professionals and students. I strongly recommend it for individuals as well as libraries."--ComputingReviews.com, September 12, 2013
