Book Cover-Secrets and LiesJohn Simek provided many good tips during his recent presentation at VSB Techshow (archived at Virginia State Bar CLE site, for those who did not catch live version) I was particularly pleased that he recommended Bruce Schneier as a top source of IT security advice. Schneier’s  blog is a consistent sources of valuable insights not readily available elsewhere.

Schneier’s Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World was published years ago it remains the single best IT security book I know. It’s biggest value is not specific products or services, nor techniques, but teaching people how to think about security.
