Not too technical...just enough to send you to your experts with a surprising question or two, and launch a heightened cyber security initiative!
The Audiobook goes over a range of topics from basic cyber security to current and proposed cyber security standards and their effectiveness.
Finding out just how many cyber security attacks there are going at any one given time.
The speaker is easy to understand and seems very knowledgeable about the subject. They are able to present and communicate the subjects topics without having to pause.
I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book positive or negative. It just reinforced my understanding of the topic.
I would have like the topics to be a little more in depth but overall I was happy with my purchase of this audiobook.
Ex U.S. NAVY / Grumman F-14 Tech Rep. Worked at EG&G and IBM, now LINUX and Cluster / Cloud guy. Love history, buddhist, and business books.
I am a computer guy and I learned to be very afraid. Cyber war is the next 9/11. It's not if but when.
Our only protection is the quality of our trained minds and an interest in the subject...
While I use the Internet daily I lack a basic knowledge on how it operates and the issues associated with it. This lecture series was great in explaining how the Internet works and many issues associated with security and operation of this vast network on which we depend.
A good review of cyber security history and issues. Accessible for a non-computer person like me. Chapter 16 has advice for protecting one's own systems and data.
I'm new in the security field. This book was great at giving the history of security and breaking the terms down in layman's terms. Excellent listen!
This book gives the listener a high level overview of many of the security issues that a prevalent. The author uses many examples of real world examples and breaches to illustrate the
Yes it did
I dont think it would work as a film as it is a series of CyberSecurity lectures
"Informative and entertaining"
This is a great overview of the cyber security landscape. It was engaging and prompted me to think a long new lines as I mull over the vulnerabilities and challenges in my organization. I am a senior technology manager in a large global organisation and cyber security is managed by others who are professionals in that domain. So for me this was a useful adrenalin shot to get more background and help me get more from my engagements with those professionals. I myself am in technology infrastructure and I did not pick up on any material issues with the technical content - some of it is simplified so it appeals to as wide an audience as possible. It is NOT a technical book but a high level overview of a large, complex domain. Technical people should listen to this book so they get a stronger appreciation of the socio-political landscape to balance the technicalities of cyber security or infrastructure.
