IT Policy Compliance For Dummies Published By Qualys

Qualys : 02 April, 2010  (New Product)
Qualys has released its third book of simple guides to compliance and vulnerability management with the publication of "IT Policy Compliance for Dummies"
Qualys has published a new handbook - "IT Policy Compliance for Dummies" - an easy-to-use guide to what IT and security managers need to know about IT policy compliance. Created in conjunction with publisher John Wiley & Sons and co-authored by Qualys' Jason Creech and Matt Alderman, the book simply explains IT policy compliance and the steps an organization needs to carry out to prove compliance to an independent auditor. The book is available as a free download.

Because the vast majority of business today is done through or with IT, organizations of all sizes are required to operate according to accepted industry standards and demonstrate IT compliance according to internal policies and external regulations. According to Gartner research, "by facilitating the mapping of controls to specific IT resources, and by automating the collection and reporting of information on the degree to which those controls are being performed, IT governance, risk and compliance management can be used to improve an organization's external audit posture, reduce compliance reporting costs and improve an organization's capability to address IT risks."

"IT Policy Compliance for Dummies" outlines the process in five parts:

* Stepping Into the World of IT Policy Compliance for a primer on the meaning of policy compliance and its relationship to IT.
* Defining the Problem of IT Policy Compliance to direct readers to the alphabet soup of regulations and standards and look at how they relate to policy compliance.
* Best Practices for IT Policy Compliance Management providing a swift orientation to the guts of IT policy compliance, including ten best practices.
* Looking at Automation in IT Policy Compliance helping readers discover how automation can help their organizations ease policy compliance and save money.
* Ten Tips for IT Policy Compliance listing the steps to ensure compliance with regulations and standards.

"This book is based on industry best practices compiled from working with organizations on IT compliance initiatives," said Alderman and Creech. "We hope this will be a valuable resource helping businesses understand IT policy compliance and take the steps necessary to ensure their companies pass audits for the set of regulations with which they must comply."

"IT Policy Compliance for Dummies" is Qualys' third book in John Wiley & Sons' for Dummies publications. Other titles are "PCI Compliance For Dummies" and "Vulnerability Management for Dummies".
