      This booklet is written as an employee security awareness manual. It
      can be purchased and used as such (by a small business), or customized
      and augmented by other materials (for a large enterprise). (If you
      intend using the primer "as is" for your employee manual, note that
      you should read it first, and ensure that you do, in fact, provide the
      services, and have the policies, that Cohen recommends. This should
      not be onerous, as the procedures outlined are quite reasonable, for
      any but the smallest business.)

      The content is well-written, readable and clear, and covers a number
      of basic points that are often neglected (such as the importance of
      reading and understanding the contract with the employer, and, by
      extension, the employer's policies.) (The topics are approximately
      one page in length, or less, and are all, with one exception, on
      separate pages.) A significant portion of the early material is
      concerned with personal physical (rather than information) security.
      This is a very good arrangement, not only because it demonstrates
      concern for the well-being of the employee, but also since it starts
      with the more familiar (less esoteric) matters, and is a good lead-in
      to the concepts of information security.

      Well thought out, well written, and clear. This is a useful item for
      those who do not have the time to create their own security awareness
      materials, and a model for those who do.
