Re: Info on Security Controls

Any high level security book do the trick, if I understand your question correctly.  The CISA or CISSP track, for example, would have information on security controls.  You can also look at standards, such as COBIT or ISO 27002/17799. 

What are you looking for specifically?

Re: Info on Security Controls

I'll second ketchup's response...  and his question.  What exactly are you looking for?  The topic can be VERY general, and without some specifics, it's hard to point you in any given direction. 

For instance, are we talking security as in policy / procedure / posture, or physical / logical security, or something a little more specific, pertaining to a specific regulation or mandate, such as HIPPA, COBIT, PCI?

This has been my favorite book for this type of thing: http://www.amazon.com/Information-Techn ... 847&sr=8-1

Re: Info on Security Controls

Sorry, my question was quite vague!

It was more of a question at looking at critical security controls and what systems are affected by particular controls (if this makes sense).  I have been looking at the below link from SANS, this is kind of what i am after!
