Artikel-Beschreibung
This book serves as a guide to help the reader develop an awareness of security vulnerabilities and attacks, and encourages them to be circumspect when using the various computer resources and tools available today. For experienced users, Computer Science Security presents a wide range of tools to secure legacy software and hardware.

Computing has infiltrated all fields nowadays. No one can escape this wave and be immune to security attacks, which continue to evolve, gradually reducing the level of expertise needed by hackers.

It is high time for each and every user to acquire basic knowledge of computer security, which would enable them to mitigate the threats they may face both personally and professionally. It is this combined expertise of individuals and organizations that will guarantee a minimum level of security for families, schools, the workplace and society in general.

Ameur Salem Zaidoun received a National Diploma in Computer Engineering from ENSI, Tunisia, and is a university teacher at ISET of Siliana at the level of Lecturer Technologist. An ex-developer and security consultant, he is a CCNA R&S-, DevNet- and CCNA-Security-certified and a Huawei HCNA-R&S-certified Cisco Instructor.
