Cracking eCommerce for fun and profit[edit]

According to the book, to defend yourself against hackers, you have to think like one. In all other cases, the attacker is ahead of you. This is done by protecting yourself by attacking your own site. If you are successful, then you know how to protect yourself. In his book, he shows the view of attackers on ecommerce offers with all different attack techniques and pitfalls. There he discussed how to self-defend. The book is meant to be a compendium for people who do not read compendiums. It's a compilation of all the key attack scenarios, fundamentals and defenses that are needed on the internet today. Internet and browsers have become the most important application on the computer and on "smart" devices. Therefore, the need to understand the risks behind it are required to protect from breaches.[37][38][39][40][41][42][43][44]

Incident Logbook[edit]

Incident Logbook focuses on the fact that information security can only succeed in companies if it is learned from successful (cyber) attacks and if the organization of IT security adapts to it. The 3Be system (Reporting, Editing, and Fixing) enables comprehensive information security management (ISMS) and makes the IT infrastructure more resilient to attack. The idea of the Cyber Incident Report or Logbook was taken from the aviation and health care institutions. Critical events are reported anonymously in a CIRS to improve the situation. This notebook was created by author Peter Wilfahrt as "admins best friend". An administrator or IT officer can log and document information on incidents offline so that the connections and incidents yield an overall picture.[45][46][47][48][49][50][51][52]
