The one book I have found most useful to new comers is Information Security Policies Made Easy, by Cresson. It comes with a CD that makes tailoring to your environment and searching extremely easy. There is a new version out as of May 2001. Another author I would recommend is Thomas Peltier. He has been in security for many many years and is excellent. Peltier has a new book due to be released in December 2001, Information Security Policies, Procedures and Standards: Guidelines For Effective Information Security Management. A quick review of the topics in this book look excellent. (I will be adding this to my personal library!)
