This book is an excellent resource for anybody looking to test the security of their e-mail service, or wanting to learn more about their email security and penetration testing.
The book is focused specifically on email security and testing, and doesn't stray from this into other realms of IT security. It is split into helpful chapters which lead through the process of creating a better test plan for email security and covered many aspects on this which I had not considered.
The writing is clear and concise, with occasional diagrams which are also helpful. The information is well thought out and easy to digest, which is not always the case with books on IT. The book provides an introduction which explains exactly what is covered and importantly, what it assumes you already understand. Because of this the writing is never patronising, or covering the basics of IT security as if you are a complete novice.
Ultimately if you are looking to learn about IT security and hacking in general, then there are other books which cover a wider range of subjects. However if you are specifically interested in how to improve your e-mail security and conduct better tests of your system, this book will provide you with all you need to know.
I had to give this book a 5 star rating. This is a precisely, well thought out and well written e-book. I must say, I am very impressed. It caters to IT security professionals and people interested in computer security or the subject matter in general. I myself am simply interested in the subject itself and found this to be a very interesting and easy read and I have learnt a great deal from it. It may be an easy read yet it still manages to be very informative and knowledgeable at the same time. Each of the pages is jam packed full of information you needn't go elsewhere to find out more because it's all right here. I highly recommend this e-book, it will not let you down. Excellent value for money, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for future releases from this author.
Great e-book for anyone interested in the subject matter, or just interested in computer security in general. Very interesting to learn the ins and outs of thing's. It's an easy read and in-depth at the same time, great value for money, I will be checking out any other/future releases by the author!
