    Story
    "outstanding lecture series"
    What did you love best about Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare?

    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.


    What does Professor Paul Rosenzweig bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.

    "Outstanding course"
    What did you love best about Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare?

    This course will not make you a cyber security expert, but covers the growing dark economy, and how this new domain is changing everything.


    What other book might you compare Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare to and why?

    Inside Cyber Warfare


    What about Professor Paul Rosenzweig’s performance did you like?

    He was able to present facts, without the "Digital Pearl Harbor" crap we get from most of the so called experts.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Zeta cartel run in with Anonymous

    "outdated"

    It feels outdated and superficial. He presents well but the information is only sometimes interesting and helpful. I feel like grandparents might like this, though.

    "Comprehensive an interesting"

    This is a very comprehensive an interesting course. It is also extremely relevant even though it was done a few years ago. For those who have an interest in cyber security or computing generally, you will get a lot out of this course. For those who are new to this world, you will still find the course useful but some parts of it maybe slightly advanced. However, the professor does a great job of explaining things even to the neophytes.

    Story
    "Made me think"

    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.

    "Fantastic Course"
    Would you listen to Thinking about Cybersecurity: From Cyber Crime to Cyber Warfare again? Why?

    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.


    What about Professor Paul Rosenzweig’s performance did you like?

    He gives an excellent delivery. His passion for the subject comes through.

    "cursory analysis. outdated."

    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.

    "Very informative, well researched, and engaging"

    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.
