The guide providesinformation on educational resources, events, publications, online resources, associations and organisations connected with information security around the world.
The online format will enhance the guide's value to those in the information security field who want to reference valuable resources quickly, said John Colley, EMEA managing director of (ISC)2.
"The guide is considered by many information security professionals and managers around the world as the 'go to' source for educational and networking information, especially important in these economically difficult times," he said.
A printed version of the guide will continue to be distributed at the start of each year, but the online version will be updated regularly and includes a search facility.
"Information security professionals require tools and resources that are current and easily accessible," said Colley.
