BLOKWORX Co-Founder and President Robert Boles Hits Amazon Best-Seller Lists with “Under Attack.”

Robert Boles recently hit five Amazon Best-Seller lists in the United States with “Under Attack.”

San Francisco, CA – January 26, 2016 – Robert Boles recently joined a select group of business experts and entrepreneurs from around the world, along with Robin Robins to co-write the book, Under Attack: How to Protect Your Business & Bank Account From Fast-Growing, Ultra-Motivated and Highly Dangerous CyberCrime Rings.”  CelebrityPress™, a leading business book publisher, released the book on January 14, 2016.

On the day of release, Under Attack reached best-seller status in five Amazon categories - reaching as high as #1 in the “Cloud Computing,” “Network & Cloud Computing,” and “Computer Network Security” categories.  The book also reached #2 in “Cyber Security & Encryption,” and #5 in “Computers & Technology.” Robert Boles contributed a chapter titled “Security Considerations For Financial Professionals.”

CelebrityPress™ describes the book:

The wording "Under Attack" implies a dangerous situation - one that signifies we are currently under assault. In this book, the Celebrity Experts® showcased are in the vanguard of protecting data and sensitive information under threat - the threat of digital information being made available to unscrupulous sources, and at times just pure vandalism. There are very few businesses, organizations or even individuals, left in this country that don't use electronics today.

The Electronic Revolution has been all encompassing. Remaining vestiges of 'old world' practices - like manually writing or recording transactions or events, or the time-honored tradition of 'hiding money under the mattress' - have all but disappeared. So, along with the use of bows and arrows and pony dispatch riders, these are becoming historical markers strewn along the path of progress. The Celebrity Experts® in this book are people who are in business to protect digital information. In addition to unscrupulous sources that wish to profit from competitive information, businesses also have to deal with governmental regulations that ensure both consumer’s privacy, as well as organizational transparency.

Penalties for not adopting legislated governmental requirements in medical, financial and various other industries are severe. The information herein highlights the usefulness and ability of these experts - and their expertise is varied. We should not be surprised that electronic systems are "Under Attack," and also, that these Celebrity Experts® are not merely qualified, but more importantly, experienced in helping stave off the inevitable attacks that businesses, governments and organizations face daily. Using such expertise is a form of insurance, without which the cost of remediation can be devastating.

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