Format: Paperback
Security awareness is a vital part of information security. Just how important is it? In September, the 10-day SANS Security Awareness Summit 2014 will cover every aspect of the topic.

For those that want to get an appreciation for the topic but can’t make it to Dallas for the Summit, Security Awareness: Applying Practical Security in Your World is a good resource for the reader that wants both an understanding of the theoretical awareness issues, and how to practically address them.

Author Mark Ciampa is a computer science professor Western Kentucky University with an expansive background on the topic.

The book has an awareness focus for Windows users. The reader is expected to be somewhat technical, and relatively comfortable with using Windows tools.

For those looking for a mid-level reference on the topic, a book that’s not too basic, and also not so broad, Security Awareness: Applying Practical Security in Your World is a good resource to add to any information security awareness program.

I traded this in to Amazon because it helped me pass my CSI class with flying colors so, I didn't need it anymore. But if your going into the computer sciences, I definitely recommend. With technology expanding so rapidly, we tend to forget that we need to protect the information that we share. I love that there are tons of scenarios in this book that relate to today.
