New Book Arrivals

Several books arrived at my door last week. I have time to add two to my reading list, after which I will read and review cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m. The ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs I will skim and not review, since I don't review books I don't at least try to read fully.

The first of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 two books to make my short list is Syngress' Combating Spyware in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Enterprise. This book does not appear to have a lead author, but it has a technical editor and seven contributors. Sometimes this is a recipe for disaster. However, I want to read this book because it is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 spyware topic from one of my mainstream publishers. I also liked Syngress' related books Inside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Spam Cartel, Phishing Exposed, and Software Piracy.

The second book I plan to read is anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Syngress book that I did not expect: How to Cheat at Securing a Wireless Network. This is anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r book in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Syngress format, with one lead author (Chris Hurley) and a ton of contributing authors. I gave Chris Hurley's previous book WarDriving three stars, but I hope this one is better.

I don't plan to read cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following, but I may skim cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m for useful information. You can expect me to not sell cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se on eBay (as I'm sure some ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r review copy recipients do!) but I will probably give cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m away at NoVA Sec or ShmooCon gacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rings.

Staying with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "cheating" line we come to How to Cheat at Managing Information Security. I don't plan to read this book because it seems to repeat a lot of information I already know. If this book concentrated on management issues, I would probably read it. Instead, I see short discussions of technical material across a wide range of issues. The book is probably aimed for managers who need to know some security, not security people who need to know some management. If you prefer books written by one author, though, this book is for you -- Mark Osborne wrote it.

Incidentally, I'm not a big fan of a "How to Cheat" cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me, since I graduated from a military academy with an Honor Code. Staying with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 management cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me we come to Syngress' Syngress IT Security Project Management Handbook. This book is similar to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 previous one, since Susan Snedaker wrote it, with Russ Rogers as technical editor. I'm not sure how much of this book I can skip and still feel comfortable about reviewing it. While cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is more management than cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 previous book, I still see plenty of "tech overview" chapters. We'll see.

The last book is Cisco Press' Advanced Host Intrusion Prevention with CSA. I don't use Cisco host-based products. This book looks like a good manual for Cisco Security Agent, but I don't need to read one.

By cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way, while searching I found this upcoming book: Designing BSD Rootkits by Jospeh Kong. I found this related Phrack article by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same person. I can't wait to read this book. Since that link just went did, here is anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r.

The VMI Honor Code:

"A cadet does not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate those who do."

Tough code to live by, and tough to watch guys (VMI was all-male when I was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re) leave after 3 or sometimes 4 yrs.

Richard, when someone was caught violating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 honor code, what happened? Did you guys have a ceremony, or did cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cadet just disappear?

Hi Harlan,

The cadet was often transferred to "Top Gun 41", a squadron behind a locked door (no kidding) from which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was usually no return.

This makes my hockey jersey all cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 more interesting!

There were no ceremonies, certainly nothing like you see in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 movies.

The link to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Phrack article is dead. Archives anyone?

I wonder what Syngress was thinking with that series cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me? I am glad it is in small print, because seeing that will make me think, "cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 real material is elsewhere, but here's how you can get by with second-rate tips and tricks." That's my impression of it... For instance, I'd racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r secure a wireless network as opposed to cheat at it. Does that mean it's not really secure, it just seems like it? Does that mean securing a wireless network is so hard, that I have to take different routes?

"A cadet does not lie, cheat, steal, nor tolerate those who do."

duh? this is a fine moto to live by, but too bad that military schools are just a microcosm of society. cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's just as much lieing, cheating, stealing, (and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r crimes!) in those institutions as anywhere else in society. this is true everywhere, including corporations, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 military, and yes even those secrative spy agencies. making motos like this or writing some corporate or govt policy does not change human nature. cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re will always be those liers and cheaters among us, no matter where we are (how about in church)! in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 security field, those are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "malicous insiders" we worry about. yes, i'm talking about you!!

edog29,

Are you a graduate of any school with an honor code?

edog29,

I understand what point it appears that you're trying to make...however, at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 school I was at, this is not simply a "moto[sic]"...it's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Honor Code.

If you re-read my post, you'll see that I never said anything about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re not being those who violated cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Honor Code. In fact, I referenced cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 process by which someone is "drummed out", implying that yes, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are those who are caught, tried, and convicted. If memory serves, a good number of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'cases' were settled (and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 individual "drummed out") as a result of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pre-trial hearing.

Is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Honor Code perfect? No. It was created by people, and it's upheld and enforced by people. It's only as good as those who honor it. And it did teach me personal responsibility..or racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, it showed me what would happen if I chose to violate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Honor Code.

I'll echo Richard's question...which school did you attend?
