FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Alan Adcock Hits Amazon Best-Seller List with Easy Prey!
Cyber-security expert, author, and entrepreneur Alan Adcock recently hit two Amazon.com best-seller lists with the new book, Easy Prey!
Alpharetta, GA – September 30, 2016 – Alan Adcock has joined a select group of Cyber-security 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. Alan contributed a chapter titled “Locking the Door.”
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 frequently 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, Adcock 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.

About Alan Adcock:
Alan C. Adcock has been “messing around” with technology for more than 30 years, and yet somehow never gets tired of this ever-changing industry. Alan is CEO of Automated Solutions Consulting Group (ASC Group) in Alpharetta, Georgia. Founded in 1999, ASC Group provides remote network monitoring and management, strategic technology consulting, lifecycle planning, Internet security, data storage and security, and cloud solutions. Many ASC Group clients have been clients for 15+ years.
Alan began his IT career at the age of 17 by working with a local systems integrator as a PC technician, eventually becoming the Senior Systems Engineer and Project Manager at that company. Later, he served as the Vice President of Information Technology for one of Atlanta’s largest Real Estate Investment companies. In this role, Alan was responsible for all aspects of technology planning, including computer systems, telecommunications, office equipment, and project management, as well as coordinating technical support and managing a budget for over 155 users.
Alan co-founded Automated Solutions Consulting Group with Gary Smith in 1999 to serve small businesses that needed affordable CRM software solutions and dependable networks to automate their operations. Upon the death of Mr. Smith in 2007, Alan re-focused ASC Group exclusively on network engineering solutions for multi-server, multi-site organizations. ASC Group has since evolved into a full-service network services provider and serves small-to-midsize businesses, medical practices, private schools and non-profit organizations in the greater Atlanta area.
While working with clients, Alan has seen first-hand the challenges posed by increasingly complex security and compliance demands. Today’s smaller organizations have to be prepared to face the same (or greater) threats as large corporations, and ASC Group’s goal is to bring big company technology solutions down to the small business level.
Alan grew up in Roswell, Georgia, and is a graduate of Georgia Tech. He currently resides in Woodstock, Georgia, with his wife and son.
