A shocking tell-all look at corporate security, from a white-hat hacker who's spent years breaking into banks, insurers, and hospitals!

If you assume that the businesses you deal with are looking after your data securely, you're in for a shock. Companies are only as secure as their weakest link - this book shows just how weak this link can be.

Corporate Insecurity details frightening tales of corporate espionage that have never been told before. It includes from-the-trenches advice on making safe security holes: from technical issues to training, physical layouts to security mindsets. Written by Jim Stickley, one of the world's most well-known experts on corporate security and identity theft.
