Format: Paperback
I bought this Network Security for Dummies after spending two frustrating hours in a large bookstore looking at one security text after another and finding that they were all written for people who already know a lot about networks. I suppose the assumption is that you won't get into network security until you have experience running a network, but the small company where I work only just set up a network and we need security right away. We can't afford to pay someone to run the network or be in charge of security. To my relief, the author of Network Security for Dummies understands this. It is obvious that she is just as knowledgeable about protecting networks as the authors of the other books I looked at (I was pretty amazed at what I found when I searched the web for the NRO, which the cover says is where she used to work). But she has taken the time to explain things to those of us who don't live and breathe computers. And she does so without talking down to you. At work we have already used some of the techniques she suggests and I feel confident we can make our network a lot more secure than it was, without spending a lot of money, but with the added advantage of really understanding what we are doing.

This book is a great place to find everything in one place. This is the first book I've ever read that gives you step by step instructions on securing servers. Most of the other books I've read tell you to do it, but they don't tell you how. I especially liked the chapter on wireless networks. My company just installed one and we didn't know that it was open to the public. I've heard that a lot of computer security has to do with basic rules or common sense, but I've never seen it put all in one place and explained so well before.

This is absolutely the best book I've ever read about networks and security. It isn't a "dumb" book and it's not too simplistic, either. It's perfect for network people who are supposed to be doing security, but don't know where to start. There's lots of stuff in there I never thought about - like your computers being used to attack other computers. There are a lot of checklists and hints to help out companies who don't have a computer security expert on board. Thank you, Ms Cobb for writing such a neat book

I really liked this book! All the others I picked up on the subject turned out to be about hacking and/or were deeply technical. This book hits just the right balance of basic explanations (without being condescending) and intro-level technical advice. My wireless network was wide open and I didn't realize it until I read this book. I also know how to secure my computers with security patches - which always seemed like a black magic to me before. This writer really knows her stuff! I hope she does more books!
