Overview

Provides an organized physiological and sociological profile of the Hacker Includes explicit instructions describing how hackers use techniques and tools to break into systems from both the inside and outside Examines changing the focus of the IT admin's priorities and points to a more effective security philosophy Addresses the "it can't happen to me thought process" at work and at home Explores how to develop an offensive and defensive game plan and provides the tools to make it effective It is becoming a true WAR out there and FAST. Pulling no punches, the hard hitting Hacker's Handbook examines the present condition of toady's information security in interconnected networks and offers a motivating call to arms. Written from the vantage point of "been there - done that" the author describes actual encounters and real life countermeasures. The book has a true how-to focus, covering in detail the techniques used by hackers to launch their attacks. It also offers a physiological and sociological profile of today's hacker and an offensive game plan to head them off at the pass. It clearly raises the bar one or two notches in the war against information technology hackers and terrorists. As recent attacks have demonstrated, organizations are virtually helpless against most hacker, industrial espionage, or information terrorist attacks. The Hacker's Handbook explains who they are, what they do, and how they do it. It details the tools they use and what they look like when they use them. It discusses effective countermeasures and how to deploy them quickly. By knowing how the bad guys think, or better yet, thinking like the bad guys, the good guys can start to turn the tide of battle.
