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!
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.
