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 have enough experience to know that some areas covered by the book are done very poorly. The chapter review questions can be awkwardly worded. I feel, though, I am learning some, particularly the terminology of security. The book describes good defensive practices which would definitely be valuable for the novice, but not anything you couldn't find with a little bit of web searching.
Get this if required but it's not a keeper so borrow or rent it.
