[Book Review] The Microsoft Encyclopedia of Security
When I attended the Microsoft Security Summit 2007 event at The Park Hotels, Chennai on December 13, 2007, as part of the free goodies and gifts they were giving for the first two hundred registrants, I got a copy of the book "The Microsoft Encyclopedia of Security" by Mitch Tulloch.
I just thought I would share a few points about the book:
- No matter what is the level of knowledge of the reader in Information and Computer Networks security, this book is for sure, a definitive and a valuable resource that needs to finds its place in everyone's bookshelf.
- Even the most harder to remember and recall security concepts are explained in a way that we learn them in a breeze.
- Even though it is a dictionary-style encyclopedia, it never gives any boredom for reading it every page continuously. It is each user's individual preference. You can just jump into your appropriate topic of interest whenever you want or read from cover to cover.
- The book has also a cheaper-priced Eastern Economy Edition for sale in India and other Asian countries which would mean enormous savings for us.
