One of the core values of #misec is recognizing the achievements of the community. One such achievement is the release of Amanda Berlin’s (@infosystir) new book, Defensive Security Handbook. Co-authored by Lee Brotherston (@synackpse) and published by O’Reilly Media, the Defensive Security Handbook has become a premier authority on how to secure your modern infrastructure.
Defensive Security Handbook can be purchased from Amazon here. If you happen to have your copy with you and Amanda is around, be sure to ask her to sign it!
