Trojans, Worms, and Spyware provides practical, easy to understand, and readily usable advice to help organizations to improve their security and reduce the possible risks of malicious code attacks. Despite the global downturn, information systems security remains one of the more in-demand professions in the world today. With the widespread use of the Internet as a business tool, more emphasis is being placed on information security than ever before. To successfully deal with this increase in dependence and the ever growing threat of virus and worm attacks, Information security and information assurance (IA) professionals need a jargon-free book that addresses the practical aspects of meeting new security requirements. This book provides a comprehensive list of threats, an explanation of what they are and how they wreak havoc with systems, as well as a set of rules-to-live-by along with a system to develop procedures and implement security training. It is a daunting task to combat the new generation of computer security threats - new and advanced variants of Trojans, as well as spyware (both hardware and software) and "bombs” - and Trojans, Worms, and Spyware will be a handy must-have reference for the computer security professional to battle and prevent financial and operational harm from system attacks. *Provides step-by-step instructions to follow in the event of an attack *Case studies illustrate the "do's," "don'ts," and lessons learned from infamous attacks *Illustrates to managers and their staffs the importance of having protocols and a response plan in place

In The Swift Developer's Cookbook, world-renowned iOS development author Erica Sadun brings together powerful ideas, strategies, and ready-to-use Swift 2.0 code solutions for a wide spectrum of everyday app development problems. Writing for Swift developers at all levels of experience, Sadun presents dozens of carefully tested and well-annotated Swift-specific solutions, nearly all of them developed in response to specific questions from the iOS and OS X developer community. She also offers expert advice and practical strategies for developing with an immensely powerful language that continues to rapidly evolve and improve. Ideal for developers migrating from Objective-C, Swift 1.0, and even non-Apple languages, The Swift Developers Cookbook covers all this, and more: How to use Apple's tools to mitigate changes in Swift's common language constructs Using Swift's playgrounds to prototype, debug, and experiment more quickly and effectively Bringing enumerations, structs, and tuples into first class partnership with classes Fully leveraging the power of optionals, a foundational concept in Swift programming Encapsulating state and functionality with closures Leveraging control flow, from stdlib functional programming techniques to if/while Using Swift generics and type constraints, and extending classes with protocols Handling mixed-language projects as you transition from Objective-C Changing your mindset to write effective Cocoa and Cocoa Touch code in the new Swift 2.0 environment Using Objective-C and C source code to work around Swift 2.0's remaining limitations Making the most of the remarkably powerful Swift Standard Library The Swift Developer's Cookbook follows the same approach that has made Sadun's iOS Cookbooks so popular. Sadun provides in-depth, step-by-step instructions, up-to-the-minute best practices -- and, above all, thoroughly tested cookbook recipes you can easily adapt for your own projects. She covers every key component of Swift 2.0 development, demonstrates how to write robust and efficient code, and helps you avoid common pitfalls other developers are encountering. Clients and development organizations are already scrambling to find experienced Swift developers who can solve real problems. Get this book, and you'll be way ahead of them!
