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 Some are already outdated but the knowledge and awareness they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.
