And that was why an obsolete, barely functional computer, sitting on a cluttered desk in a tiny family business with no secrets inside its computer network anyone cared about, became a key link in a global chain of events that shook the world.
Bullseye Breach is an IT security educational book disguised as a fiction international thriller ripped from recent headlines about how a large Minneapolis retailer loses 40 million card numbers to an international cast of criminals. People are mystified by the sensational data breaches in the news recently. Bullseye Breach unravels that mystery.
It’s a great story with all the international thriller elements, including a floating dead body in the Gulf of Finland. Follow how crooks scour the Internet to find their target, how they initially penetrate the Bullseye Stores’ network and recon the network looking for paydirt, and how they deploy malicious software to steal credit card numbers on a breathtaking scale. Along the way, you’ll also meet a few downstream criminals and innocent victims. And a few people in Minneapolis not bound by stifling corporate bureaucracy who come up with an ingenious way to fight back.
The story would be unbelievable, except that similar events continue to really happen in real life. The sensational headlines are all around us. Bullseye Breach goes behind the sensational headlines and uses fiction as a vehicle to teach readers how the bad guys operate and how we can protect ourselves.
I know you’ll enjoy reading it.
