The angles of attack in today’s cyber security landscape evolve every moment. But even more ominous, there is no organization too small to escape being a target. However, there is an answer to these threats: a good sheepdog, alert to every danger and breach. In Wolves, Sheep and Sheepdogs: A Leader’s Guide to Information Security, authors Jim Shaeffer and John Cunningham use a powerful analogy to paint a vivid picture of both sides of the firewall. Whether you are a Board Member, investor, CEO or CISO you will gain a deeper understanding of the roles, characteristics, and motivations of both security professionals and the wolves they guard against. Shaeffer and Cunningham have worked with scores of organizations and share some of their keenest insight to achieving an adaptive security mindset. In doing so, they create a common language for those in both information security and non-technical leadership positions. No matter your role, this book will help give your organization a cyber-security edge against the threats of today and tomorrow.

Writing Security Tools and Exploits will be the foremost authority on vulnerability and security code and will serve as the premier educational reference for security professionals and software developers. The book will have over 600 pages of dedicated exploit, vulnerability, and tool code with corresponding instruction. Unlike other security and programming books that dedicate hundreds of pages to architecture and theory based flaws and exploits, this book will dive right into deep code analysis. Previously undisclosed security research in combination with superior programming techniques will be included in both the Local and Remote Code sections of the book.
The book will be accompanied with a companion Web site containing both commented and uncommented versions of the source code examples presented throughout the book. In addition to the book source code, the CD will also contain a copy of the author-developed Hacker Code Library v1.0. The Hacker Code Library will include multiple attack classes and functions that can be utilized to quickly create security programs and scripts. These classes and functions will simplify exploit and vulnerability tool development to an extent never before possible with publicly available software.
