New edition of infrastructure protection handbook

Filed under: Infrastructure Protection,International HLS — by Christian Beckner on April 14, 2006

The Center for Security Studies in Zurich, Switzerland has published this week a new edition of their Critical Information Infrastructure Protection Handbook. From the site’s description of the book:

Volume I of the 2006 International Information Infrastructure Protection (CIIP) Handbook focuses on national government efforts to protect critical information infrastructure and provides an overview of CIIP protection practices in 20 countries and six international organizations. In this 2006 edition the scope has been extended and the country survey section expanded to include Asia, and in particular India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Russia. Written with security policy analysts, researchers, and practitioners in mind, this publication can be used either as a reference work of current CIIP methods and models or as a starting point for further, in-depth research.

I’ve read the 2004 edition of this book, and it provided an excellent overview of different countries’ infrastructure protection and cybersecurity policies and the methodologies used to assess critical infrastructure threats and vulnerabilities. I’m looking forward to reading through this new edition.
