Publisher's Summary

Hacked Again details the ins and outs of cybersecurity expert and CEO of a top wireless security tech firm, Scott Schober, as he struggles to understand the motives and mayhem behind his being hacked.

As a small business owner, family man, and tech pundit, Scott finds himself leading a compromised life. By day, he runs a successful security company and reports on the latest cyber breaches in the hopes of offering solace and security tips to millions of viewers.

But, when a mysterious hacker begins to steal thousands from his bank account, go through his trash, and take over his social media identity, Scott stands to lose everything he has worked so hard for.

Amidst the backdrop of major breaches, Scott shares tips and best practices for all consumers. Most importantly, he shares his own story of being hacked repeatedly and how he has come to realize that the only thing as important as his own cybersecurity is that of his readers and viewers.

    "Something Everyone Should Hear"
    What did you love best about Hacked Again?

    Scott Shober's hacked again was very well written and the narration on the audible version was equally was great. The book goes over the very basics of modern security such as how not to write a password before going into more advanced topics and describes some infamous hacks and how they could have been prevented. The book seems to be targeted toward mainly toward business owners, but I highly recommend this to anyone using modern technology.

    Story
    "stories from the front line"

    Mr. Schober writes from being there on the front lines of cybercrime fighting. Thrust into this role by the criminals themselves, he tells the tales in a language that is technical and accessible to those outside the tech field. These firsthand accounts are a great example of what is really going on. It also contains proven techniques to protect the average person from becoming another cybercrime statistic.

    Story
    "Informative and Useful information."
    Would you listen to Hacked Again again? Why?

    I would listen to it again to fully digest all the little tips that are mentioned at the end of each chapter.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    no characters to speak of.


    What about John Pruden’s performance did you like?

    This is the first time that i have heard a book narrated by John Pruden and his performance was perfect for the subject matter and made some of the more technical stuff easier to listen to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I tend to listen to books whilst i drive and my job often involves 1-2 hour driving stints which makes it easy to listen to in one day. i think it would be easy to listen to at home in one hit for sure.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott N Schober has been brave by admitting that his company was hacked more than once considering the business that he is in. Some of the information and advise may seem obvious but judging by the amount of people that are hacked every day this information is often ignored and people need to take note. I was a victim of account hacking on my PayPal account a few years ago and can relate to the hassle of getting your money back.Since then i have always changed my passwords but now will start layering my security as per the advise in this book. I would recommend this to anyone with a gadget that connects to the internet as you can never be too safe can you!!!!!!

    "Great perspective for the uninitiated."
    What made the experience of listening to Hacked Again the most enjoyable?

    Hacked Again is an easy listen that will resonate most with individuals not deeply familiar with cyber security. For that audience, the book provides excellent insights and advice that will clearly help people to take steps to secure themselves online. Scott’s use of personal examples, including the sharing of cases where he himself was hacked, is compelling. More awareness of these risks and how to manage them is needed, and Scott’s book helps to fill this gap.

    Story
    "Conversational security for the masses!"
    What made the experience of listening to Hacked Again the most enjoyable?

    This extremely informative book is well-presented and easy to follow. The information provided was very conversational, hence the headline of this review. So much in fact, that as a security professional myself, I caught myself a number of times talking to the car stereo, seeking to expand upon various topics with real-world relevance to not only my professional life, but my personal experiences with identity theft as well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Scott Schober's character is presented in such a manner that I the listener could really relate to the frustration of being "Hacked Again"!


    What about John Pruden’s performance did you like?

    John Pruden gives a masterful performance. He artfully convey's the essence and message of the story, while adding dramatic flair and genuine emotion to a story that needs to reach a large audience.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hacked Again sums things up quite nicely.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, great listen and definitely a great presentation of security for the masses!

    "Interesting story and lots of useful information"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book to friends to help them understand how to keep their accounts safe online. This book tells more about a security business that is exploited several times and while they are a bigger target everyone should be careful.


    What other book might you compare Hacked Again to and why?

    It's comparable to The Art of Deception, The Art of Intrusion, Ghost in the Wires (all by Kevin Mitnick).


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, If I could have listened in one sitting I would have.

    "Interesting Listen"

    Hacked Again is an interesting read for individuals and small businesses who are not overly familiar with cyber security best practices. The stories Scott shares are certainly entertaining and he effectively shows how cyber attacks can happen to anyone.

    As someone in the Cybersecurity space providing services to enterprises, I have heard of many of these techniques, but it was also interesting to hear a different perspective based on Scott's experience. Definitely with a listen!

    "An excellent listen and read"
    Where does Hacked Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Excellent in security area with good insights on his company getting hacked


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    NA


    Have you listened to any of John Pruden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Anyone can be hacked


    Any additional comments?

    I read this book over three days after being given a free download by it's author Scott (full disclosure). Its a good and fast read that is designed more for business owners, business managers and the general public (at least in my opinion) more than IT security people. Filled with good sound advice throughout the book and sharing the knowledge on how Scott and his company were hacked in the past and how they responded to the Hacks to get back control of their money and systems. I have recommended this book to a couple of IT colleagues who have read the book already and found it very valuable in helping to set some basic rules for themselves.

    "Essential cyber security reading"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to all of my friends in the tech community. It's a great introduction to the vast array of cyber threats and provides some good tips on security your private information.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hacked Again?

    The fact that the author, who is a superstar in the cyber security world, admits to being hacked (a few times at that) is really refreshing. It lets you know that the threats out there are real and they can - and will - happen to anybody, so take them seriously. It would be easy for Scott Schober to say that he's beyond hacker's reach, but he was honest and I really appreciated that.


    What about John Pruden’s performance did you like?

    He did an okay job. It took a long time to get used to his voice/reading style. Kind of annoying at first, but the content was so good, it helped me move past my hangups.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I don't really have a specific part that moved me. It was consistently solid throughout.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great introduction to the threats that exist in today's world. Many topics are covered, and this book is a great first step to mastering cyber security.
