NORFOLK, Va., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- With the continual rise in cyber crime, corporate secrets are harder to contain (as demonstrated by recent attacks against Google, Adobe and other major companies). To gain unauthorized access, attackers persuade employees to open cleverly crafted e-mails and click on links to sites that silently install data-stealing software.
To combat this threat and protect company secrets and customer data, all employees should know how to:
- Spot social engineers trying to manipulate their way to unauthorized information
- Recognize suspicious e-mail that may contain (or link to) malicious software
- Identify suspicious behaviors, whether from systems or people
- Prevent leaking sensitive data to open sources
- Create a secure password
- Report security incidents
Through suspenseful events, coupled with lessons learned, a new book titled Cyber Within helps organizations tackle this security challenge head-on. Cyber Within, written by Marcos Christodonte II, MBA, CISSP, is an educational tool for corporate workers that uses an engaging story, lessons, and tips to help employees understand and spot security threats.
Robert Lentz, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Cyber, Identity and Information Assurance at the U.S. Department of Defense, says, "Cyber Within is a stellar portrayal of why user education on Cyber Security threats, tactics and techniques is so critical."
Kevin Beaver, independent information security consultant with Principle Logic, LLC and author of Hacking For Dummies, says, "Lack of awareness is a grand security weakness. This book provides a unique approach to help fill the gaps and would be a great addition to anyone's information security toolbox."
Christodonte is well-qualified to present security guidance to employees. He is a cyber and information security professional working for a consulting firm. He has developed security strategies for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and NATO.
