Scrappy Information Security
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. I agree. People need more than a little knowledge to be safe online. They need to understand how encryption, the Internet, and wireless work so that they can put the pieces together -- literally like a jigsaw puzzle -- to reveal the image of a more secure online world. It is my goal to craft those pieces in such a way that the average reader will understand these technologies, and therefore understand how to apply them to both their corporate and personal cyberselves.
This book should be read by anyone who cares about the security and privacy of their online information, and wants to know how to take steps to protect it ... and that should be everyone. This book should be read by anyone who wants to "do the right thing" and ensure that they do not inadvertently compromise their employer's, or their own, sensitive information ... and that should be everyone. This book should be read by anyone who believes that crime is crime, it should be stopped, and wants to know what concrete steps he or she can be take to reduce cybercrime and minimize its impacts ... and that should be everyone.

Scrappy Business Contingency Planning
In simple terms, business contingency planning (BCP) is the art of preparing an enterprise for "bad things." The bottom line is that you are trying to enable your organization to withstand an unlikely, though not unexpected, event. But a good business contingency plan should help you weather even an unexpected event, that is, something that "can't happen here." Developing a business contingency program from scratch is not a "quick hit" effort. It is a major undertaking. 'Scrappy Business Contingency Planning' provides a blueprint for the creation of a business contingency program from the ground up.
This book provides a blueprint for the creation of a business contingency program from the ground up. After reading this book, a corporation without a business contingency plan should understand the scope of their effort to create one. A new contingency planner will find this book a refreshing how-to guide. Even a seasoned BCP professional will walk away with a tip or two, and a new perspective on some of the issues facing planners.
