Here's a good resource for beginning IT managers. Some experienced IT people may also benefit from reading this free E-book.


Qualys is a well known provider of security software. I first ran into them a few years ago when they offered a free browser testing service. Since then, they've discontinued that service, but I've never forgotten them.


Note: To get this free offer, you must register your email address and a few other details at Qualys. I'm confident that they will not send you email that you don't wish to recieve.
