Thumbnail image for The 3 Best Security Books You Need Today

Let’s be perfectly honest. There are a lot of half-assed and, frankly, crap books on security out there. Some are a little better than crap, and then there are the passable ones. We’ve had to wade through mires of inane and silly “expert” opinions to get to these three, so we hope you’ve come prepared – these are the absolute essentials that any security professional and anyone just interested in home and personal security need within arm’s length.

Thumbnail image for Being a Mercenary – New FAQ!

Becoming a mercenary? Since we wrote our page on How to Become a Mercenary, we’ve gotten a lot of questions, a few suggestions and even some job offers, both for ourselves and our readers and visitors. Since it’s hard to squeeze in all of the relevant information on one single page, we thought it was about time we made an FAQ page, where you can both look for an answer to your questions, and ask new one if what you’re wondering about isn’t listed. That’s what the comment section is for, remember. Our comment policy is that we read all comments and answer all questions! If we […]
