Appendix A. Additional Resources (Maintaining Peace in the Village)

Appendix A. Additional Resources (Maintaining Peace in the Village)

Now that you’ve read all the chapters, you might be feeling a bit over-whelmed at the prospect of securing your system and keeping it secure. That’s certainly how I used to feel. Luckily, you don’t have to face this task alone. There are literally hundreds of information security professionals, hackers, and information technology professionals who share their knowledge and information about security with each other constantly. Even better, they share this information with the rest of the world freely on Internet sites, and you can even listen in on their conversations on mailing lists. Through these resources, you can get a great look into the ever-changing world of information security. Because crackers and hackers are always updating their techniques, the security professionals also keep up-to-date with their defenses, best practices, and warnings concerning how to secure your system.

Note that these resources are for all levels of users. Some sites get deep into the topics quickly and can lose novice readers equally quickly. No worries though; plenty of resources are available. I highly recommend finding a list or site that meets your needs and is roughly at your technical level (or slightly higher, if you want to learn the topic in depth). Keeping up will be hard enough without the additional task of having to figure out what is being said every time you read it. Then monitor that list or site to keep yourself up-to-date.
