    "Wow, from a Linux guy!"

    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...

    "Awesome Lecture"

    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.

    "Interesting and topical"

    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.

    "Informative and entertaining"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.

    Highly recommended.
