Just as a professional athlete doesn’t show up without a solid game plan, ethical hackers, IT professionals, and security researchers should not be unprepared, either. The Hacker Playbook provides them their own game plans. Written by a longtime security professional and CEO of Secure Planet, LLC, this step-by-step guide to the “game” of penetration hacking features hands-on examples and helpful advice from the top of the field.
Through a series of football-style “plays,” this straightforward guide gets to the root of many of the roadblocks people may face while penetration testing—including attacking different types of networks, pivoting through security controls, and evading antivirus software.
From “Pregame” research to “The Drive” and “The Lateral Pass,” the practical plays listed can be read in order or referenced as needed. Either way, the valuable advice within will put you in the mindset of a penetration tester of a Fortune 500 company, regardless of your career or level of experience.
Whether you’re downing energy drinks while desperately looking for an exploit, or preparing for an exciting new job in IT security, this guide is an essential part of any ethical hacker’s library—so there’s no reason not to get in the game.

The Cyber-Security Glossary of Building Hacks and Cyber-Attacks was developed specifically to help facility and infrastructure engineers and building managers understand vulnerability of SCADA systems and building and industrial control systems to cyber-attack. The book includes definitions of technical terms related to automated equipment controls common to industry, utilities and buildings. Although written for facility engineers, much of the terminology applies to cyber-attacks in general. I define many types of cyber-attacks including: Dictionary attack Cinderella attack Time Bomb attack Fork Bomb attack Logic Bomb attack Bluesnarfing Smurf attack Vampire Tap Water Holing Pass the Hash attack Tiny Fragment attack Protocol Fuzzing attack Replay attack Amplification attack Man in the Middle attack and many more. I also include steps to take to prevent a cyber-attack.

The importance of computer security has increased dramatically during the past few years. Bishop provides a monumental reference for the theory and practice of computer security. This is a textbook intended for use at the advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate levels, non-University training courses, as well as reference and self-study for security professionals. Comprehensive in scope, this covers applied and practical elements, theory, and the reasons for the design of applications and security techniques. Bishop treats the management and engineering issues of computer. Excellent examples of ideas and mechanisms show how disparate techniques and principles are combined (or not) in widely-used systems. Features a distillation of a vast number of conference papers, dissertations and books that have appeared over the years, providing a valuable synthesis. This book is acclaimed for its scope, clear and lucid writing, and its combination of formal and theoretical aspects with real systems, technologies, techniques, and policies.
