Well, here's the end of the road, so to speak. In this part, I've compiled into top-ten lists what I believe are the absolute critical success factors to make ethical hacking — and information security in general — work in any organization. Bookmark, dog-ear, or do whatever you need to do with these pages so you can refer to them over and over again. This is the meat of what you need to know about information security, compliance, and managing information risks — even more so than the technical hacks and countermeasures I've covered thus far. Read it, study it, and make it happen. You can do it!
In addition, the Appendix contains a listing of my favorite ethical hacking tools and resources that I've covered, broken down into various categories for easy reference.
