Publisher's Summary

This book provides an easy insight into the essentials of cybersecurity, even if you have a non-technical background. You may be a business person keen to understand this important subject area or an information security specialist looking to update your knowledge.

Companies that can use technology wisely and well are booming, companies that make bad or no technology choices collapse and disappear. The cloud, smart devices and the ability to connect almost any object to the internet are an essential landscape to use but are also fraught with new risks and dangers of a magnitude never seen before. Also featuring an alphabetical section at the back of the book to help you translate many of the main cybersecurity technical terms into plain, non-technical English.

Not for IT ppl moving into security

This book is definitely aimed at the business professional. It's pretty much just a glossary of tech terms in narrative form. I would have liked it more if all the tech terms came with a explanation of practical use or real world example of how the glossary terms are used.

A good thorough grounding in cyber security principles

I thought this was a good book on the principles of cyber security. Aimed more at a commercial or corporate clientele trying to come to terms with basic cyber security. I felt as an individual it was still a good book to gain a thorough basic knowledge. Terms were not too technical while still understandable to someone fairly conversant with the digital world. Would recommend.
