I am writing a paper about ITIL security management. I am having a hard time to find resources that discuss about these issue. What are some sub-topics that can be discussed about ITIL security management and what are good resources for ITIL security management?
I plan to start of with explaining what information security is in ITIL and SLA in ITIL. I know that security management is protecting a company information by controlling it's data access, privacy, and confidentiality from risk and unauthorized access. That is to throw off the definition of security management in a nut shell.

do you have access to the ITIL books? This is where to start.
You will probably find some relevant discussions on LinkedIn discussion groups. There is a website called infosecisland which may have some relevant material.
Why do you mention SLA? Is that a separate paper? it would not be a beginner subject to link the SLAs to the security requirements except in the most general sense.
By the by, for me, information security is also about the integrity of the data in the sense that it is correct, not corrupted and with documented and traceable authenticated sources.
When your paper has been fully developed, I might expect it to come to the conclusion that ITIL is neither substantial nor comprehensive on the subject as it leaves much of the detail to other bodies of knowledge and standards as John pointed out, and as it does in many other areas also. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."
