This book is an excellent starting point for any executive planning to lead his company onto the battlefield where hackers and site owners wage war for the possession of critical data….this is one of the best introductions that I have seen and would highly recommend it to anybody who has a basic grasp of computer operating systems and network.

Mr. Merkow and James Breithaupt have masterfully crafted a guide that speaks to both ends of the technical spectrum: Novice to Expert. A 'must have' for the IT Security Professional's personal library. An absolutely 'must read' for business leaders.
