Building on what we started for NetSuite, Andy Snook and I have finished the Microsoft Dynamics GP Security and Audit Field Manual.
The problem with security books is that they fall into one of two camps. Security books written by auditors explain good security principles, but don’t offer enough detail for use in a specific application. Books written for applications are often filled with details on boxes to check, but thin on important concepts like mitigating controls.
With the Security and Audit FieldManual, we’ve tried to tackle both. Each chapter addresses a set of security principles and details how those principles can be applied using features in Dynamics GP. What’s makes these books work is that good principles are good principles regardless of the software involved. The key, the expertise, is in applying those principles to a specific piece of software, without losing the principle in the process.
Dynamics GP MVP Mariano Gomez was kind enough to write the forward and MVP Belinda Allen helped review the manuscript to ensure that it met the level of quality we wanted. She was also kind enough to give a quote for the cover:
“This book is a must read for anyone in charge of Dynamics GP. I learned a lot from it, and I’m sure you will too.”
The Microsoft Dynamics GP Security and Audit Field Manual is available from Amazon in paperback and Kindle formats. We will have a limited number of copies at Summit and we’re happy to sign them for folks, so stop by the Fastpath booth and say Hi!
