Threatsaurus The A-Z of computer and data security threats by SOPHOS In collaboration with the Center for Internet Security. Free 100 pages e-book PDF format.
Thirty years ago, the first computer virus appeared, Elk Cloner, displaying a short poem when an infected computer booted up for the 50th time. Since then, cybercriminals have created millions of viruses and other malware—email viruses, Trojans, Internet worms, spyware, keystroke loggers—some spreading worldwide and making headlines.
Everyone knows about computer viruses. Or at least they think they do. To protect against malware and data loss, first you have to know what you’re up against. The more you know about individual threats, the better prepared you’ll be to defend against them.
This guide is written in plain language, not security jargon. So it’s perfect for IT managers and end users alike. Whether you’re an IT professional, use a computer at work, or just browse the Internet, our Threatsaurus is for you.
Here’s what you get:
- An A-Z glossary on computer and data security threats
- Practical tips to stay safe from email scams, identity theft, malware and other threats
- Security software and hardware guide by Shophos
In addition to downloading the PDF, you can also choose to look up threats by name in Sophos online version of the Threatsaurus.
