Hello my name is ***** ***** certified computer professional with over 10 years experience. I will be happy to help you. Is the person you are shopping for a tech or are they just interested in how it all works?

He's interested. An advanced beginner if that makes since. But it would have to be sort of plug and play. But he knows about things like encryption. He uses tails web os i think

Tech Support Specialist: Chris L., Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

I think this is a great book as it runs through security and threats but also has labs that he can try out himself and explains the software which is used (most if not all can be downloaded free) so this would be good as it will teach him some things he likely doesn't know but also walk him through labs so he can play around with these techniques.

Also I though he may be interested in this book here:

https://www.amazon.com/Art-Computer-Virus-Research-Defense/dp/0321304543

Most other books are text books but if he is not studying for a career in network management/security they may be a bit dull which is why I chose these.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
