Hal Lonas Hits Amazon Best-Seller List With Easy Prey!

Cyber-security expert, author, and entrepreneur Hal Lonas recently hit two Amazon.com best-seller lists with the new book, Easy Prey!

San Diego, California – October 5, 2016 – Hal Lonas has joined a select group of Cyber-hallonaspicsecurity experts from around the world, to co-write the book titled, Easy Prey: How to Protect Your Business from Data Breach, Cybercrime, & Employee Fraud. The book was published by TechnologyPress and released on August 18, 2016.

On the day of release, Easy Prey reached best-seller status in three Amazon.com categories – reaching as high as #1 in the category “Computers & Technology,” #3 in the “Computer Viruses” category, and #5 in the “Security & Encryption” category. Hal contributed a chapter titled “Beating Bad Guys At Their Own Game – Using Automation For Prevention.”

TechnologyPress describes the book:

The term Easy Prey aptly describes those businesses exposed to the illegal, immoral and illicit industry known as Cybercrime. Unsuspecting and often unwary businesses and their personnel are often taken in as “easy prey” by cyber-gangsters. Cybercrime, which replaced cyber-vandalism, is growing quickly and more sophisticated daily. To counter the threats of cybercrime, the Celebrity Experts® in this book lead the way to secure their clients’ systems and data from vicious cyber-attacks. With added government regulations for compliance and privacy, these experts are called upon to train and protect their clients from the online bandits that frequent the Internet, as well as to meet regulatory compliance standards. The need to secure business cyber-systems and to train personnel in cyber-security has become critical. Businesses of every size can no longer assume their computer operations are safe. Professionals – like the Celebrity Experts® in this book – are called in to ensure they don’t become Easy Prey for the cybercriminals, thereby protecting them from the unimaginable social and financial consequences they can bring.

After such a successful release, Lonas will be recognized by The National Academy of Best-Selling Authors™, an organization that honors authors from many of the leading independent best-seller lists.
