Product Description

From the Back Cover

Inoculate your network against the viruses, worms, and Trojans of today -and tomorrow

Virus writers are becoming craftier and more numerous every year, resulting in huge losses-in revenue, data, productivity, and reputation-for companies and organizations around the world. Going beyond the partial ?xes of today's off-the-shelf security solutions, this book delivers the hands-on strategies and tactics you need to foil malicious code-and protect the integrity of your network. Drawing on his day-to-day networking experience, security expert Douglas Schweitzer describes the threats-both current and projected-and offers detailed, practical advice for securing BIOS, boot sequences, e-mail, instant messaging, Web servers, and more. It's all you need to lock out viruses-and lock down security for your network.

You'll learn how to:
* Understand the threat virus writers and hackers pose
* Get a handle on various types of malicious code
* Protect BIOS, booting, ?le systems, memory, and other basics
* Secure e-mail, browsers, and ?le sharing
* Eliminate virus threats to instant messaging
* Mobilize staff against the threat of viruses and social engineering
* Strengthen ?rewalls, intrusion detection, and data recovery
* Defend against server-side exploits
* Prepare for cyberterrorism and the viruses of the future

The companion Web site contains multiple links to security software solutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Dec 8 2002
By Gloria
I found this book quite interesting. Unlike other books I'v read, this book explained this subject in an easy to understand and interesting manner. While it can get technical at times, I'd say...give it a shot. It's got some great links to security products that I never knew even existed.
