Designed to provide students with the knowledge needed to protect computers and networks from increasingly sophisticated attacks, SECURITY AWARENESS: APPLYING PRACTICE SECURITY IN YOUR WORLD, Fourth Edition continues to present the same straightforward, practical information that has made previous editions so popular.
