Resident and local business owner Al Alper has a new book coming out on cyber security.

Available later this month at Amazon.com, Revealed! The Secrets to Protecting Yourself from Cyber-Criminals is “a plainspoken, no-nonsense business owner’s guide to protecting yourself and your business from the dark side of the internet,” a press release said.

Alper, founder and CEO of technical support and technology consulting firm Absolute Logic, was inspired to write the book “after experiencing increased inquiries from businesses that had fallen victim to phishing, malware, ransomware and other cybersecurity attacks and were looking for remedies and protection,” the press release said.

“The uptick in ransomware has been in all the headlines lately,” Alper said, “but the fact is that there are so many opportunities for cyber-criminals to access your network and steal vital personal or business information.”

“This is book is meant to help raise the awareness of business owners who are vulnerable to these types of attacks, and offers common-sense strategies to stay protected, as well as tips on what to do if your business’s infrastructure comes under attack,” he said.

Revealed! The Secrets to Protecting Yourself from Cyber-Criminals follows up Alper’s 2015 book Revealed! The Secrets to Hiring the Right Computer Consultant, also available at Amazon.

The press release said that Alper anticipates continuing the Revealed! series in the future.
