Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Spam and spyware are frustrating enough if you’re an individual. But if you’re a company, that’s real money they’re costing you -- and real, serious security and liability risks they’re creating. This book offers a realistic plan for dealing with these problems, one that doesn’t require a Ph.D. to implement.

Security consultants Peter Gregory and Mike Simon help you evaluate your environment and users, and get the problem under control without unnecessary hassle or cost. They cover everything from business processes and cost justification to filtering technologies.

Should you use software, appliances, an ASP, a client-side solution, or what? How will you manage your anti-spam solution once you’ve deployed it? What can you do about Joe Jobs, directory attacks, and other nastiness? Gregory and Simon walk you through your options, help you decide, help you get the job done. Bill Camarda, from the June 2005 Read Only

Meet the Author

Peter Gregory, CISA, CISSP, is a career IT guy who has worn just about every hat that could be worn in the Data Processing/Information Systems/Information Technology business. Peter has IT experience in government, banking, nonprofit, legalized gambling, and telecommunications. The Usenet-E-mail-Internet bug bit him in the mid 1980s. He has spent the past eleven years in two wireless telecom companies, working in positions where he develops security policy, security architecture, and security emergency response teams, and is a security consultant in general.
His passion for computers is matched only by his dedication to helping people know how to use information systems — from personal computers to mainframes — more effectively and safely. He achieves this through his speaking appearances at security conferences, in ComputerWorld and other online publications, and through a security consulting company that he cofounded in 2002.

Michael A. Simon works as a computer security consultant in the Seattle area and the northwestern U.S. with clients in banking, e-commerce, health care, and biotechnology. Mike has been working in IT security for around 20 years and wrote his first programs on punched cards for an IBM mainframe in the early 1980s. Although he doesn’t get much chance to exercise his skills in COBOL or Fortran these days, he keeps a deck of blank IBM punch cards around just in case.
For the last 10 years, Mike has been working for the company that he cofounded with Corwin Low when the Internet was more innocent, and convincing people of security’s importance was a difficult task. Mike keeps busy assessing new threats for his clients, lecturing at Seattle University and the University of Washington, and advancing the public service goals of Northwest Security Institute, a non-profit that he helped to found.
