I think I already wrote my review, but just in case . . .A few takeaways:1) there are many padlocks can be opened without bolt cutters2) keep a low profile - I removed my business card that I had taped on my laptop, and from my bags; 3) shoulder-surfing 101 - just be more observant as to what's going on around you;4) have fun with this book - it's a quick read and gets you to thinking about simple security.There's more, just take a look at the sample chapter on .
Good idea for a book. Not so great in execution. Almost looks like one of those books for 'Dummies'. The largest chapter, on Google Hacking, is ripped directly from another book by the same author and is little more than grainy, hard to read, black and white photos. I rate it an. Eh.
A pretty good introduction to social engineering and physical penetration testing. The mix of stories as good examples and then a list of practical steps to be more resilient to social engineering attacks was good.
Much of this is pretty dated but knowing the mindset of a "no tech hacker" is very valuable. Many of the lessons are well-known but they bear repeating. I have changed my behavior because of this book. For example, I never truly appreciated how I could make myself a target by talking - even in general terms - about where I work and what I do. I am a lot more cautious now. Another example: now I know never to wear my employee badge in public.Best of all, Johnny Long has a delightful sense of humo [...]
Guaranteed to make you somewhat paranoid, still cool. Loved what the guy could accomplish with one camera -- the pictures were very enlightening. The no-tech chapters are full of seemingly obvious information I'd have ignored if the photos weren't there to prove we can all be a tad stupid when it comes to digital security. Just reading this made me look at my desktop with another set of eyes.
This book is about the physical security vulnerabilities inherent in human organizations.A book with a number of sections contributed by different authors. Some winners and some losers, but overall the editing could have done much more to ease the flow between sections.The material itself is largely ho-hum. The author demonstrates how you can, for example, research a repairman's uniform or identity badge. But without convincing the reader why exactly this is so bad, or presenting any viable alte [...]
I think this one should be on everyone's must read list. In fact, I would recommend re-reading it at least once a year until you memorize it. Some of the technical stuff is dated, but the principles and lessons are timeless. Follow up by watching the YouTube video of Johnny giving this presentation. Seriously, do it.
