    The wealth of easy to understand information in this book makes it a valuable asset to a wide range (i.e., levels of technical expertise) of Internet users.

    The author sets the stage for addressing the topic of Internet Security by first covering the Internet basics in easy to read fashion. He explains that it’s through the various Internet subsystems that Internet Security breaches can blossom and he addresses these potential risk areas in a methodical fashion.

    By leaning towards simplicity and basics, the author is able to cover a wide range of security issues and a wide range of areas of security vulnerabilities. He then addresses means that are currently available to minimize these vulnerabilities.

    It’s obvious from reading the book that Internet Security will never be risk free and the author describes the things that are currently being pursued to make the Internet a more secure environment.

    I feel that this book is a “must read” for anyone who uses the Internet whether they’re security conscious or not. If they’re currently not security conscious, or aware of their vulnerabilities, this book will serve as a real “eye-opener”.

    This book is for you whether you are a systems administrator, have a personal or a family computer. You will come away feeling comfortable and confident with firewalls and implementing security policy. And through the use of historical background and diagrams, a better understanding of your system overall. This easy read covering everything from children on the internet to industrial espionage details exactly what you are protecting against, how to identify “suspicous” activity and what to do if you’ve been victimized.
