“I am pleased that my titles’ certifications have made such a strong showing,” says Peter H Gregory, who has published over forty books since 2000. “This success would not be possible, however, without strong support from McGraw-Hill Professional over the past thirteen years with the publication of the first edition of the CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor All-In-One Exam Guide.”

Gregory has written a total of twelve titles for McGraw-Hill Professional since 2009, including CRISC Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control All-In-One Exam Guide, second edition, co-authored with Bobby Rogers and Dawn Dunkerley, available for pre-order and expected to be available in late March 2022.

CISA All-In-One Exam Guide published

Bookmark This (opens in new window)

The CISA Certified Information Systems Auditor All-In-One Exam Guide, published by Osborne McGraw-Hill, is now available in bookstores and from online merchants.

CoverFront200xWritten by Peter H. Gregory, this book is largest and most complete study guide available for the CISA (Certified Information Systems Auditor) professional certification.  Prior to Osborne McGraw-Hill’s decision to publish this book, the other study guides that were available are shorter and contain less detail. This difference is key for IT professionals who are studying for the CISA certification, which places high demands on the exam taker to be able to recall many details and specifications about information technology, key business processes, and IT auditing.

Despite its title, CISA Certified Information Systems Audit All-In-One Exam Guide is structured and designed to also be a desk reference for early- and mid-career security auditors and security specialists who need a reliable, easily-consumed reference guide for key information technologies and IT auditing practices.  The book contains two chapters that go beyond the CISA study material and include lengthy discussions of professional IT auditing and security and governance frameworks.

“The availability of this study guide represents a big step forward for IT professionals who are studying for the CISA exam and those who have IT security and audit responsibilities,” states Peter H. Gregory. “The IT industry has waited a long time for an All-In-One guide for this popular certification,” he adds, citing the enormous popularity of the CISSP All-In-One Study Guide that is written by Shon Harris and considered the best CISSP guide available.

Disaster Recovery Book Available in Electronic Edition

Book receiving critical acclaim from experts now available in Amazon Kindle edition

SEATTLE, Wash., September 5, 2008 – Technology author Peter H. Gregory’s 18th published book, IT DISASTER RECOVERY PLANNING FOR DUMMIES (John Wiley & Sons; $29.99; December, 2007), is receiving rave reviews from industry experts and professional reviewers.  The book is now available in electronic form on Amazon’s Kindle book reader.

According to Philip J. Rothstein, an industry expert on business continuity and disaster recovery planning and the owner of Rothstein & Associates, a disaster recovery planning consulting services firm, “Peter Gregory’s book helps to establish a realistic perspective for Disaster Recovery and provides a no-nonsense yet manageable foundation. He has identified many issues, techniques and tips which I found quite useful, despite my 25+ years involvement with business continuity and disaster recovery.”  Mr. Rothstein also wrote the Forward to the book.  According to Thomas Duff, 25-year IT professional and Amazon “Top 100” reviewer, “It would be tempting to make all sorts of snide comments about a Dummies book that wants to take a serious look at disaster recovery of your IT area.  But this is a Dummies title that you’ll actually go back to a number of times if you’re responsible for making sure your organization survives a disaster…  It’s actually the first book on the subject that I found interesting *and* readable to an average computer professional.”

IT Disaster Recovery Planning For Dummies is now available in Amazon’s Kindle electronic format.  This will enable owners of the popular Amazon Kindle to purchase the book at a reduced price and have an electronic edition of the book (and hundreds of others) readily available.  “Not only will this make the book more convenient for people to read, but having an electronic edition could be especially handy during a disaster or other emergency situation,” cites Peter H. Gregory, author of the book.  “When offices are shuttered or unreachable, this and other important books can be pre-loaded on Kindle readers and available as back-up references for emergency planners and responders,” he adds.

IT Disaster Recovery Planning For Dummies is available in paperback form at local book dealers, and also from online dealers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Borders.  It is available as an e-book directly from the publisher, John Wiley & Sons, as well as for Amazon Kindle.
