Major security surveys and reports continually show that passwords are one of the greatest weaknesses on enterprise networks. Criminal hackers exploit weak passwords for their ill-gotten gains as do malicious employees and other insiders. Even advance malware can take advantage of weak passwords. Something has to change. But you can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge. That’s why Kevin Beaver’s book, Hacking for Dummies: 4th edition, presents the latest tools and techniques you can use to cover weak passwords in your environment and to minimize password risks once and for all. We have an excerpt of the book on our IT Bookworm Blog.
Since we’re feeling generous, we’re giving away five more copies of the book, all signed by Kevin Beaver himself! To win a copy, tell us “What do you believe is the greatest contributor to information security problems in your organization, or if you’re not into self-incrimination, society as a whole?” Good luck!
