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!
I enjoyed this book quite a bit, there are diversified clusters of knowledge ranging from beginner knowledge to advanced ideas. Also the last couple chapters have good future ideas and projects of computing.
A tad action, mix in some history, throw in some battle & a sprinkle of mystery. A dash narration with added heart & a novel can become art
This is a great course indeed, as others have mentioned it stays more on a legal side than a technical side, but does cover alot of topics with just enough detail.
If your after a technical view, stick to kindle, machine code and programming code dont translate well to an audio book format (not that there are any in this book).
If you want a great overview, a look at where we are heading, social and legal impacts and some great stories (i.e stuxnet) then this course is for you.
This book is oriented around the legal and policy questions that are emerging from the information age that we are living in. In my opinion it will be of more interest to legal scholars and policy makers, than to readers interested in the 0's and 1's of cyber security. That withstanding, I think this lecture series is very well suited for the legal audience as the author presents the material in a very clear and understandable manner, without much technical jargon.
As a law student interested in these issues, the lecture series was very informative and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the topic.
I would have liked to complete the series in a single sitting. The presenters speaking style was dynamic and the content was presented concisely and with a real sense of conviction.
This would be good materials for someone that requires continuing education points for a cyber security certification or as an introduction to the concepts and impacts of cyber operations in the real world.
