Research and Markets has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Low Tech Hacking. Street Smarts for Security Professionals" to their offering.
The hacking industry costs corporations, governments and individuals millions of dollars each year. While the media focuses on the grand-scale attacks that have been planned for months and executed by teams and countries, there are thousands more that aren't broadcast.
