Book Description

Aug. 3 2007 1597491640 978-1597491648 1
Members of AVIEN (the Anti-Virus Information Exchange Network) have been setting agendas in malware management for several years: they led the way on generic filtering at the gateway, and in the sharing of information about new threats at a speed that even anti-virus companies were hard-pressed to match. AVIEN members represent the best-protected large organizations in the world, and millions of users. When they talk, security vendors listen: so should you.

AVIEN's sister organization AVIEWS is an invaluable meeting ground between the security vendors and researchers who know most about malicious code and anti-malware technology, and the top security administrators of AVIEN who use those technologies in real life. This new book uniquely combines the knowledge of these two groups of experts. Anyone who is responsible for the security of business information systems should be aware of this major addition to security literature.

* "Customer Power” takes up the theme of the sometimes stormy relationship between the antivirus industry and its customers, and tries to dispel some common myths. It then considers the roles of the independent researcher, the vendor-employed specialist, and the corporate security specialist.
* "Stalkers on Your Desktop” considers the thorny issue of malware nomenclature and then takes a brief historical look at how we got here, before expanding on some of the malware-related problems we face today.
* "A Tangled Web” discusses threats and countermeasures in the context of the World Wide Web.
* "Big Bad Bots” tackles bots and botnets, arguably Public Cyber-Enemy Number One.
* "Crème de la CyberCrime” takes readers into the underworld of old-school virus writing, criminal business models, and predicting future malware hotspots.
* "Defense in Depth” takes a broad look at DiD in the enterprise, and looks at some specific tools and technologies.
* "Perilous Outsorcery” offers sound advice on how to avoid the perils and pitfalls of outsourcing, incorporating a few horrible examples of how not to do it.
* "Education in Education” offers some insights into user education from an educationalist's perspective, and looks at various aspects of security in schools and other educational establishments.
* "DIY Malware Analysis” is a hands-on, hands-dirty approach to security management, considering malware analysis and forensics techniques and tools.
* "Antivirus Evaluation & Testing” continues the D-I-Y theme, discussing at length some of the thorny issues around the evaluation and testing of antimalware software.
* "AVIEN & AVIEWS: the Future” looks at future developments in AVIEN and AVIEWS.

5.0 out of 5 stars The *must have book* for all Malware administrators Aug. 11 2007
By Michael P. Blanchard - Published on Amazon.com
If your book budget only allows for one book this year, this is the book you should buy. If you're a malware administrator for a small to large size enterprise this is the book that will help guide you through your day to day activities.
The section on detection a piece of malware that may be running on a user's machine is extremely helpful, the tools mentioned in that chapter will all become staple items in your outbreak "jumpkit" after reading that section.
There really isn't any other book like this out on the market today. The entire book was written by global top professionals in the field that live with the malware threat on a daily basis. They are not people that are locked away in a lab somewhere only dissecting threats sent to them, although that is a part of many of their jobs. These authors know what it's like to be in the trenches, trying to protect their enterprise environments while still maintaining that extremely delicate balance that allows their users to perform the daily activities that they require to make the enterprise run smoothly. These authors help walk you through their sections as if they are right there with you guiding you along and answering your questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Author's Speaks Aug. 10 2007
By Kenneth Bechtel - Published on Amazon.com
This is the book I wish I had when I started in the field back in 1988. Every one of the contributors to the book are great and knowledgeable folks. Unlike the other books on this subject everyone who contributed is highly regarded, experienced and active in the career field.

This is a MUST for every Corporate IT library.
