Since 2002, there has been an enormous increase in the number of known server vulnerabilities, leaving the traditional defensive solutions far behind. Today, attackers have improved on the sophistication used and the nature of the crime has changed. For example, web attacks between 2008 and 2010 caused 53 Seattle-based enterprises to face damages worth $3 million. Most such attacks are because of complacency and not remaining alert to the threat. The CEO´s Manual on Cyber Security teaches you how to educate employees as well as develop a framework for security management against social engineering, keeping your corporation one step ahead of the attackers. It also details how enterprises can implement defenses against social engineering within their security policy. In this audiobook you will learn how to avoid and prevent all of the following and more: Web Attacks Social Engineering Denial of Service caused by botnets Cloud Hacks Attacks via the Universal Serial Bus Clickjacking and cross-site scripting Phishing attacks from trusted third parties Don´t let your company fall victim to the thousands that will try to compromise its security and take it for all they can. Simply following the steps outlined in this audiobook and being proactive can save you millions. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Giunta.

One of the most fascinating aspects of World War II was Japan´s use of suicide pilots known around the globe as kamikazes, though the Japanese referred to them as Tokubetsu kōgekitai (´´Special Attack Units´´). Translated as ´´God Wind´´, ´´Divine Wind´´, and ´´God Spirit´´, kamikazes would sink 47 Allied vessels and damage over 300 by the end of the war, but the rise in the use of kamikaze attacks was evidence of the loss of Japan´s air superiority and its waning industrial might. This method of fighting would become more common by the time Iwo Jima was fought over in early 1945, and it was especially prevalent during the invasion of Okinawa in April 1945. The ´´privilege´´ of being selected as a kamikaze pilot played directly into the deep-seated Japanese mindset of ´´death before defeat´´. The pilot training manual assured each kamikaze candidate that when they eliminated all thoughts of life and death, fear of losing the earthly life can be easily overcome. Still, not all cases of those chosen to be kamikazes were equally noble. Recruits were trained with torturous regimens or corporal punishment, and stories of mental impairment caused by drugs or saki abound. Some were described as ´´tottering´´ and dazed, being carried to their planes by maintenance officers, and forcibly pushed in if they backed down. Pilots who could not find their targets were told to turn around and spare their own lives for another day, but if a pilot returned nine times, he was to be shot. At the moment of collision, he was instructed to keep his eyes open at all times, and to shout ´´Hissatsu´´ (´´clear kill´´). The Kamikazes chronicles the history of Japan´s famous suicide pilots and explains when, why, and how Japan resorted to their use near the end of war. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stan Chandler.

The investigator´s practical guide for cybercrime evidence identification and collection Cyber attacks perpetrated against businesses, governments, organizations, and individuals have been occurring for decades. Many attacks are discovered only after the data has been exploited or sold on the criminal markets. Cyber attacks damage both the finances and reputations of businesses and cause damage to the ultimate victims of the crime. From the perspective of the criminal, the current state of inconsistent security policies and lax investigative procedures is a profitable and low-risk opportunity for cyber attacks. They can cause immense harm to individuals or businesses online and make large sums of money--safe in the knowledge that the victim will rarely report the matter to the police. For those tasked with probing such crimes in the field, information on investigative methodology is scarce. The Cybercrime Investigators Handbook is an innovative guide that approaches cybercrime investigation from the field-practitioner´s perspective. While there are high-quality manuals for conducting digital examinations on a device or network that has been hacked, the Cybercrime Investigators Handbook is the first guide on how to commence an investigation from the location the offence occurred--the scene of the cybercrime--and collect the evidence necessary to locate and prosecute the offender. This valuable contribution to the field teaches readers to locate, lawfully seize, preserve, examine, interpret, and manage the technical evidence that is vital for effective cybercrime investigation. Fills the need for a field manual for front-line cybercrime investigators Provides practical guidance with clear, easy-to-understand language Approaches cybercrime form the perspective of the field practitioner Helps companies comply with new GDPR guidelines Offers expert advice from a law enforcement professional who specializes in cybercrime investigation and IT security Cybercrime Investigators Handbook is much-needed resource for law enforcement and cybercrime investigators, CFOs, IT auditors, fraud investigators, and other practitioners in related areas.
The Save a Life Initiative has just released its newest course: Bloodborne Pathogens Course. This course is intended to help you prepare to address the health concerns inherent in caring for others and the possible damage the microscopic world can inflict. Unlike traditional academic curricula, you will learn actionable ways to practice and prepare for the bacteria and pathogens you may encounter in your career. If you become exposed to bloodborne pathogens, you will have the knowledge to reduce the chances of disease transmission and protect others, including coworkers and patients, from possible infection. This course consists of the materials and information necessary to protect yourself and those around you from being exposed to blood or blood-containing items that you may come into contact with throughout the course of your job. This training may be required as part of your training for bloodborne pathogens by your employer.
