Protect Your Macintosh by Bruce Schneier

In these days of multiuser and networked Macs, systems are in perpetual peril. It may be from viruses or theft, from lost or corrupted data or disaster. Trade journals, user groups, and bulletin boards all reflect users' desire to know how to secure their systems, particularly after media reports of increasing incidences of corporate espionage, new viruses, and recent disasters. This book tells readers everything they need to know to keep their Macs safe, whether they're standalone machines or part of a network, whether they're for an individual or an organization. It's the only book on security that specifically addresses the Macintosh.

Protect Your Macintosh is full of useful tips, suggestions, strategies, and solutions that will help readers prevent, detect, and recover from security failures. From physical security to virus protection, file encryption to file backup, network security to power protection, software integrity to disaster recovery - it's all in the book, plus lists of sources for up-to-date product information, and the author's opinion on which products are best and why. Because of the book's clear writing style, real-world examples, many figures and illustrations, and boxes with important points bulletted, it's just as useful for non-techies as it is for techies.
