The Tips and Tricks Guide to Secure Messaging - Chapter 1 published
I have been working on an eBook for realtimepublishers.com called The Tips and Tricks Guide to Secure Messaging. The first chapter (free download) is now published (yay!!!). There is something for all levels of expertise in this book if you are interested in protecting your mail system from hostile content and hackers as well as learning about new technologies that affect messaging such as Enterprise Rights Managment. The first chapter is pretty basic stuff; when your boss asks why you need a firewall or antivirus software, pass along this chapter. Here is realtimepublisher's description.
Threats against email systems have evolved to the point that protecting users, mail servers and bandwidth is no longer as simple as installing antivirus software. By some estimates, spam, phishing schemes, viruses, and other unwanted content now make up 70% of all email traffic into an organization's mail servers. The Tips and Tricks Guide to Secure Messaging by messaging expert Jim McBee introduces IT managers and messaging system administrators to the evolving threat landscape, emerging technologies for data protection, and best practices for protecting users, messaging system resources, and organizational data.
