A few months ago, I ordered several copies of the stellar "Windows Vista Security Guide" to give away as part of a program I was working on. In classic left-hand-doesn't-know-what-the-right-hand-is-doing fashion, someone else ordered and gave away something different, leaving me with a couple boxes of this high quality resource taking up space in my office.
As is often the case in things like this, my misfortune is your gain. Contact me with your name, mailing address, and phone number (required by the shipping company) and I'll drop one of these fine resources in the mail to you. Please put "Vista Security Guide" in the subject of your message.
You could just trust me that this book is a solid reference that comes with slick utilities and templates to help you really improve the out of the box security of your Vista deployment, or you can watch the interview I did with the authors.
disclaimer: I have a limited number of books available. Once my requests are > than my supply, I'll update this post. I'll send them out as I have time, so don't expect Amazon delivery times. Limit one book per participant. This promotion may end at any time. give a hoot, don't pollute.
