A couple of years ago we published an e-book titled ‘The Hacker Tales: Stories of Hacking, Privacy and Deception’. It was hugely successful being picked up by numerous publications, websites and promoted across multiple social media platforms which resulted in it being downloaded 2000 times. The idea of the e-book is to be a grown-ups bed-time story book, where through short stories you go off to sleep wondering whether the story you’ve just read could really happen, or was it just fiction, with a moral story running through it!
The short stories can be written by anyone, all you need to do is dream up a scary hacking scenario which could possibly be something that could happen today or not in the near too far distance. They need to be entertaining, riveting, concise and enjoyable with a list of helpful hints and tips to the reader – offering IT security best practices to help readers be more security savvy otherwise there could be consequences.
Would you be interested in sponsoring the next Hacker Tales book for £1,000? Half of the money will be a charitable donation as it will go to the Children’s Charity NSPCC – https://www.nspcc.org.uk (which is the charity that the IT security community support through the White Hat Events http://whitehatevents.org.)
In return, your logo will appear in the e-book which will be promoted through the www.itsecurityguru.org and distributed to the entire IT Security Guru database, plus be a main resource to download from www.securityserious.com. In addition, Eskenzi will be working hard to promote the e-book through our many media friends and associations which we are hoping will reach over 100,000 people, plus we hope as a sponsor you can promote it through your own channels too. We’ll even provide you with your own digital copy that you can share with your customers.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, we’ll be on the lookout for good stories to include so, if you or any of your colleagues feel inspired to write a chapter of around 1000 words, we’d love you to take a read to consider it for inclusion.
Have a read of the book and let me know if:
- Make a charity donation to the book by being a sponsor
- You’d like to contribute a short story
The book will be also be available for download via the Security Serious website, other media sponsors, and we will self-publish through Amazon.
