I’ve gotten several inquiries from people lately regarding what book or books they should read to help get them started down the information security career path. Well, believe it or not, here’s the one book that really got the ball rolling for me:
Yep – I learned the basics of TCP/IP during many a lunch break way back when this book was in its first edition…and I *still* use that stuff.
Sure, information security is MUCH more than knowing TCP/IP – but this is a great place to start. So, check it out if getting started in security is on your radar. And check out my audio program Getting Started in Security as well which covers all the essentials for starting career in this field.
“A business associate referred our company to Principle Logic when we were seeking a resource to perform vulnerability /penetration testing for our external and internal networks. We found Kevin Beaver to be professional, well informed, and easy to work with. His testing did not disrupt our networks, and his progress updates were timely.
His final report was very thorough and included security recommendations for our network environment. The executive leadership was so impressed with Kevin’s security expertise, they have extended their agreement to continue to perform periodic testing. We highly recommend Kevin Beaver and Principle Logic as a resource for network security testing.”
