I recently reviewed the Absolute Beginner¿s Guide to Security, Spam, Spyware & Viruses by Andy Walker and found it to be well-written, nicely organized, and easy to follow. Although I have been in the Information Security business for many years, there is always something more to learn. This book is oriented more toward personal use computers than for corporate implementations. But it is good to know what your Security Administrators have, are faced with and have in order to do to secure Corporate information and protect its customers 'sometimes even from themselves'. What Andy covers is what everyone should understand about who 'generically identified', what¿s out there, what they¿re up to, and most important, what you can do about it. Some of the features that I liked were: the Tips, Sidebars, and Notes. Another feature that I have not seen too often is the At-A-Glance Table of Contents. What I liked about this abbreviated TOC was that I could just focus on these topics 'Basics, Strategies, and Tools' and have a fairly secure system, provided the reader actually implements his advice. The Tips, Sidebars, and Notes also allow the reader to skim the material and still end up with a more secure computer. The best feature is his easy to implement advice, if nothing else go to the end of each chapter and do ¿The Absolute Minimum.¿ I would recommend this book to those wanting a good introduction to the most common security issues today '2005,6' and what can be done to better secure your personal computer from these threats.
