New Review of Extrusion Detection Posted
Tony Stevenson wrote a very thorough review of my newest book, Extrusion Detection: Security Monitoring for Internal Intrusions. Tony really seems to understand this book, unlike the author of a recent review for Information Security magazine who completely missed the point of Extrusion. Tony writes in his review in Windows IT Library:
While it is true that his latest book can be read in isolation from the previous one, I agree with Bejtlich when he says, "in many ways, Extrusion Detection is an attempt to extend The Tao to the addressing of internal threats."
By reading both books, and by rigorously applying the strategies that are described within them, it becomes possible to significantly increase the odds in your favor of not having your company's systems violated, either from an external threat or from an internally generated attack.
