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.

The particular dictation of this narrator, or professor, makes it difficult to listen to this title at an accelerated speed. Plan on listening at 1X or 1.25 X. Overall, I enjoyed the lectures, though there isn't much new information for people already in the field or listeners of security podcasts such as Security Now...
it really helped me to appreciate the complexity of the internet and security. Good book!
This is a good overview of cybersecurity; not too technical as an audio book is not well suited in my opinion for very technically complex material. It is a thoughtful and thorough perspective of internet security and tackles some of the issues, such as privacy, that our societies will need to deal with, whether some of us want it or not.
I am not an expert in the field and this opened my eyes to cybersecurity and the cyber world.
This is a fantastic course, illustrating how many perspectives there are to cybersecurity. This is the future of warfare, and it impacts civilians - and it's scary. This should be taught at every university.
He gives an excellent delivery. His passion for the subject comes through.
this is, obviously, an ever-changing topic. for a publication on cyber* to have lasting value, it needs to bring a analytical framework that will outlive the current tech. this doesn't really deliver.
Great for the technologically adept and inept! Concepts are explained with real world analogs and examples. Theories are related to their actual application in everyday life. Fantastic book. The narrator's voice and performance takes a little to get used to, but not bad at all.
This course did a great job organizing a lot of mandated corporate cyber training I have had over the years.
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.
