The lecture series provided a great overview, for the non-expert, of the most current issues in information- & cyber-security, in a highly intelligible & engaging manner. Even if you are moderately literate on this subject, from trade press reading & from the security policies of your corporate home, you will learn a lot from this series.
Well, this is not a book, just a lecture series. I understand that the author has written some books on the same topic & I plan to look them up and get one if it doesn't look too technical.
This course will not make you a cyber security expert, but covers the growing dark economy, and how this new domain is changing everything.
Inside Cyber Warfare
He was able to present facts, without the "Digital Pearl Harbor" crap we get from most of the so called experts.

This audiobook (and the other one by the same prof) is fantastic. Really enjoyable.
Some of the technical material is fairly basic for anyone with systems experience, but is important for context in describing concepts. Plus, it's important for less technical listeners.
This course covers a wide variety of topics in the world of cyber security. It provides a high level description of topics such as big data, cyber threats, state actors, and how to protect yourself. For anyone with a cursory knowledge of cyber security you won't learn much but you might appreciate how these ideas are organized and placed in the broader context of geopolitics.
Highly recommended if you need an organized, thorough foundation to this topic. Works very well even if you are familiar with basic concepts and language.
Felt like a college 101 class (I mean that in a good way), and as such the only thing I'd like to see to improve is a recommended reading list for further depth on topic.
I was hoping for a more focused look on how individuals or individual entities can remain secure but it was more of a general discussion cyber security on a whole. and it was dumbed down just a bit too much for me I am a dishwasher an a short oder restaurant with little it know how (at least in my head) and I learn nothing new from this other than a few historical hacking events that I never heard of and he talked about things so vaguely that it would mislead someone who didn't know what was really being said (or not said) overall I did find his political views to be balanced giving both sides before stating his opinion and even then saying that we the people must choose what is or isn't correct and there were many statements made that are no longer the case for example that email encryption tools are usually less than 100$ while this may be factually true it is misleading I could also say that a phone usually costs less then a million dollars and be factually correct but "most phones are less than 500" might be more accurate same with encryption tools free is less than 100$ but most of them are free
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.
