To my audience from way back

I am not sure if you can still remember me. I was one of the speakers in one of the Lorma-hosted seminar sometime ago and had promised to send you "something" for asking a question during the Q&A portion. You may remember me with the bitcoin idea. I had been thinking about what I could really send to you as a token of my appreciation.

I apologize for the great delay. 

As you may have known recently, a bitcoin database had been hacked. This is now the challenge of the security of bitcoin and how it is digitally saved within networks. But, like some of the techos say, if a bank is robbed, you can discount saving to a bank a bad idea. But then again, let that be challenged even further.

It's like wildfire now about privacy and intrusion -- with the Hacking Team hacked, leaking information about how dubious and challenging making worthy of the systems we are building -- we have to become experts in our own field and be guided by the principles of security.

Here, I am sharing you a goldmine of security ebooks. I suggest you download what you can and keep it somewhere you can refer to sometime later. Some are already outdated but the knowledge and awareness they bring are priceless.

I hope these resources will be of help to you or the future generations under your ward.

Best wishes,
