About the Author

Rob Slade is a data communications, information security, and management consultant from North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. His first love is teaching (before research turned him into a virus expert), and he got into computers because of an interest in what they could do to improve the education process in the public school system. He holds a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia, an M.S. (in Computer and Information Science Education) from the University of Oregon, and a Diploma of Christian Studies from Regent College.

Rob has formal training in data communications and exploration with the online community, and has done communications training for a number of international commercial seminar firms. His technical jobs have involved everything from support of terminal emulation programs to satellite communications. In concert with his background in education, he prepared the technical and interface side of the World LOGO Conference, the first time an on-site conference was fully linked to online participants.

His research into computer viral programs started when they first appeared as a major problem “in the wild.” Acting initially as the unofficial archivist for the budding research community, he became known for “Mr. Slade’s lists” of virus information. While part of the working group for the VIRUS-L FAQ, he was best known for a series of review and tutorial articles that were eventually published as Robert Slade’s Guide to Computer Viruses. In an attempt to update this material, he coauthored Viruses Revealed. As an outgrowth of the virus research, he prepared the world’s first course on forensic programming, which became the first book on Software Forensics. As a Senior Instructor for (ISC)2, Rob has been working on a glossary of security terms (which became this book) and references for CISSP candidate students, describing the various CISSP study guides and recommended resources for the different domains. He is also working on the Community Security Education project, attempting to promote security awareness for the general public as a means of reducing overall information security threats.
