Your network security perimeter is being attacked more relentlessly than ever before. Inside Network Perimeter Security, Second Edition brings together today’s latest best practices for defending yourself.
Lead author Stephen Northcutt currently runs the SANS Institute, arguably the world’s No. 1 security research and training organization. (Previously, he was chief of information warfare for the U.S. Ballistic Missile Defense Organization. Impressed? You should be.)
